Hasselblad Firmware Update For X1D-50C : Hasselblad X1D In Hand (1)

With the release of the XCD 65, 80, and 135 lenses, including the X Converter 1.7, Hasselblad has introduced a firmware update that will allow the X1D-50C camera to support these lenses. 

This update also includes a list of minor improvements that advance the overall functionality of the X1D- 50c mirrorless medium format camera. As with all X1D-50c and XCD Lens firmware updates, these upgraded features are easily downloaded through the 'My Hasselblad' section of the Hasselblad website.


Support of Newest Lenses
The XCD 2,8/65, XCD 1,9/80 and XCD 2,8/135 are added to the lineup of supported lenses for the X1D-50c. Note that these lenses must also be updated to firmware 0.5.33 as well.


New Exposure Bracketing option
It is now possible to set an initial delay in order to avoid camera shake on long exposures.


Indication of Auto Focus Scan Range in Live View

With lenses that support divided scan range of Near, Far, or Full, a visual icon will be shown in Live View indicating when Near or Far settings are enabled. Currently, the XCD 120 and XCD 135 lenses support this feature.
