Hasselblad X1Dii - First Photoshoot - VS Original X1D

Google Rank
Twice the speed, improved interface, screen, EVF, included GPS and a price drop - This is launching at $5750 vs the $9000 of the original in 2016. Not quite toe to toe with the Fujifilm cameras, but a good improvement.

You can check the full details yourself or pre-order here at Amazon worldwide: https://geni.us/X1Dii

Hi from Cuba folks. I have been traveling 2 weeks and just got final specs less than 48 hours before it all goes live. So here are some specs (*untested - according to press release) that I could not include in the video.

New OLED EVF – now 0.87x magnification and 3.69 million dots
(VS Fuji 50R - 0.77x magnification and 3.69 million dots, 50S is 0.85x magnification and 3.69m dots, Nikon Z7 is 0.8x magnification and 3.69m and Sony A7R3 is 0.78 and 3.68m)

Rear screen is now 3.6-inch 2.36-million-dot touch display
(VS 50R - 3.2-inch 2.36-million-dot TILTING, 50S is 3.2-inch 2.36-million-dot TILTING touchscreen and Nikon Z7 is 3.2-inch 2.1-million-dot tilty, A7R3 is 3 inch 1.44m tilt)

Battery charging via USB now available (like everything else on market pretty much)

New touch to select focus point.

Now JPEG only capture and full res jpegs available (revolutionary...)

Like Gen 1. It has no mechanical shutter (not good for adapting lenses for portraiture but ok for landscapes usually) but the lenses have leaf shutter supporting flash sync to 1/2000 (AWESOME for portraiture) (vs 1/125 for Fujis, 1/200 for Z7 and 1/250 for A7R3)

Maximum exposure time is an extraordinary 68 minutes (vs 30 seconds for pretty much everything else)

Video – This is launching with NO VIDEO capability. Said to be added later via firmware. (Note this sensor is not capable of 4k, so it is likely to be 1080 at 30fps max)

I also am just reading about the CFV II AND 907X for the first time ever. Never heard they were coming, so I have no insights to share at this stage.

Ciao amigos, talk soon.
