Swedish camera maker Hasselblad announced a brand new medium format camera that is unlike anything that the company has ever made. Thew new Hasselblad X1D is Hasselblad's first mirrorless camera and the company says that even with their 50MP medium format sized sensor, the X1D is still smaller than a standard full frame DSLR. A medium format sensor is basically a sensor that is larger than a 35mm full frame sensor like the one on the Sony A7S or Canon 5D Mark III.

And unlike any other Hasselblad cameras from yesteryear, the X1D is built for the future. It comes with popular camera features like an Electronic Viewfinder (EVF), a USB Type-C port, built in Wi-Fi and GPS and a premium aluminium build that screams quality. The Hasselblad X1D will be compatible with existing H-system lenses through an adapter

Finally, this is a Hasselblad camera after all and the medium format sensor on a mirroless body will cost at least US$ 8,995 (~MYR 36,200). Learn all about the Hasselblad X1D features here
