100MP BSI CMOS Sensor, engineered with a large 100MP BSI CMOS sensor, the X2D 100C features an extremely wide dynamic range of up to 15 stops along with vivid 16-bit color depth. The camera’s 16-bit color depth can deliver up to 281 trillion colors, 64 times higher than 14-bit. When combined with the Hasselblad Natural Color Solution system, tonal transitions and skin tones show immense depth, detail, and clarity for lifelike image quality. This color management system also creates imagery with exquisite color and detail for exceptionally smooth tonal transitions reminiscent of analog film capture.
Hasselblad Natural Color Solution technology is integrated into the camera’s system, delivering superb, true-to-life tones that match what the human eye sees.
Fast and Accurate Phase Detection Autofocus, designed with a newly developed phase detection autofocus (PDAF) system, the X2D 100C utilizes 294 PDAF zones to provide fast and accurate focusing at the press of a button. Additionally, an updated electronic platform enables a quick 3.4 fps continuous shooting rate to capture fleeting moments in fast-paced environments.
5-Axis 7-Stop In-Body Image Stabilization, featuring 5-axis 7-stop in-body image stabilization (IBIS), the X2D 100C compensates for five different types of camera shake encountered during handheld shooting of stills. This precise and efficient system significantly reduces motion blur at slower shutter speeds and enables you to confidently capture handheld 100MP images in real-life scenarios.
X System Lenses
The HC 100mm is a fast lens particularly suited to low-light situations or for action shots where higher shutter speeds are required. The slightly longer-than-standard length coupled with its shorter depth-of-field makes it a perfect choice for striking portraits too.
At ƒ/2.2, it’s the fastest lens — aperture-wise — in our lineup. Moreover, it’s the fastest-focusing lens we have produced and when you’re moving around a subject, firing shot after shot, that extra speed is worth it.
The HC 3,5/50 is an all-around, versatile lens, incorporating a moderate wide-angle effect and featuring advanced optical design with rear focus mechanism. Corner-to-corner illumination is very even at all aperture settings, and distortion and stray light are extremely well-controlled.
The HC 50mm lens represents the equivalent of a 35mm lens in 35mm photography. It’s a wide angle lens that offers ample perspective without seeming unnatural, making it the classic lens for reportage photography.
The HCD 28mm lens has been designed to be compact and to deliver optimal performance when used with the 48 x 36mm sensor of the H System digital cameras. Image quality is refined with integral use of Digital Lens Correction which perfects the raw image by digitally removing any colour aberration, vignetting and distortion. The resulting raw images have perfect pixel definition optimal for image rendering. Its close up performance is outstanding – the subject can be as little as 10cm from the front of the lens.
Fully corrected throughout its focusing range for colour aberration, vignetting and distortion, this compact wide-angle lens is more than capable of delivering the exceptional results demanded by professional users. Whilst not an ultra-wide angle like the HCD 24mm, the HCD 28mm still delivers a full frame equivalency of 19mm when attached to the H6D-100c.
The HC 50-110mm zoom lens has a range from wide-angle to short telephoto. This lens boasts exceptionally high image quality at all focal length settings, whether shooting film or digital, and is comparable in image quality with corresponding fixed focal length lenses.
Zoom lenses are easy to use and practical, enabling you to respond quickly to changing conditions. The HC 3,5-4,5/50-110 covers an invaluable photographic spectrum ranging from slight wide angle to portrait telephoto. As a zoom lens, it has no problem keeping up with the speed and reproduction values of fixed focal lengths and its versatility makes it one of the most popular HC Lenses in the system.
The HC Macro 120mm has exceptionally high performance, making it a very versatile lens not only for close-up work but general applications too where a slightly longer lens is required.
Image quality and light distribution, even in the close focusing range as well as at maximum aperture, are extremely good. Focusing, both manual and autofocus, is from infinity to 1:1 without the need for extension tubes. The autofocus range can also be limited to near, far or full range through a setting on the camera.
A universal telephoto lens with outstanding performance, the HC 4/210’s longer focal length is excellent for tightly framed shots, enabling a shallow depth-of-field to be used to make the main subject noticeably stand out. The HC 210mm is a superior telephoto lens that features our advanced internal focus mechanism, making it an ideal choice for hand-held location work in portrait, fashion, nature, and commercial photography.
The counterpart to the classic 135mm lens in 35mm photography comes in the form of the HC 4/210 – a telephoto lens with outstanding performance. Its focal length is effective in both portraiture and landscape photography, generating that slightly compacted, typical telephoto perspective.
The HC 300mm lens is the longest lens in the HC Lens range. It has a fast autofocus reaction making it suitable for certain sports and wildlife applications. The high quality, even at wide apertures, also makes it suitable for fashion photographers needing to blur out disturbing backgrounds.
This high performance lens also features an integral rotatable tripod mount for rapid horizontal and vertical composition change.
As a result of our constant drive for ultimate performance, the HCD 35-90mm zoom lens combines our advanced optical design models and the H System’s unique Digital Lens Correction with a new aspheric lens element design to create what we think is the highest performing zoom lens on the market today.
The HCD 4,0-5,6/35-90 adds a gorgeous wide angle zoom to the line of HC/HCD Lenses. With its 82 degree angle of view on the wide end and a mild telephoto effect at the top end, it’s as universal as a Swiss army knife. Thanks to its compact size and moderate weight, it’s the perfect outdoor companion to any H Camera.
This compact mid-range zoom lens delivers exceptional results across the frame through its advanced optical design. Covering focal lengths from wide angle to short telephoto, this lens will enable users to handle most general photographic situations with ease.
The HC 2.8/80 is the standard lens for the H System. The high-performance design ensures superb colour correction, a flat image plane, and low distortion. The large aperture facilitates photography in poor light and provides a bright viewfinder image. The HC 80mm is a lens suited for almost any task in general photography.
The term ‘normal lens’ sounds a little derogatory in the context of high-class lenses, but the HC 2,8/80 is not only the most affordable but also one of the best HC Lenses on the market. It’s a high-speed lens that gives a bright viewfinder image in low light situations. It is also incredibly compact, making it an excellent choice for lightweight equipment in outdoor photography.
A retro focus lens with an 89° diagonal angle of view, the HC 3,5/35 offers outstanding corner-to-corner sharpness, low dispersion glass, even illumination, and an advanced optical design with rear focus mechanism to ensure high performance even at a close focusing range.
The HC 3,5/35 lens is still considered a super wide angle lens with its 89º angle of view. It’s a powerful lens for creative photography that is also easy to use.
The HCD 24mm lens is an ultra-wide angle lens with an advanced optical design for outstanding performance and extreme corner to corner sharpness. With a 104° diagonal angle of view it is the most extreme wide-angle lens currently available for medium format.
This ultra-wide-angle lens delivers outstanding performance throughout its focusing range. Its 104-degree diagonal field of view, the widest of our current lens ranges, enables captures to be made in cramped interiors or vast vistas by landscape photographers.
The HC 150mm, with its high speed autofocus and moderate telephoto effect, is an ideal portrait lens, providing the ideal perspective for head and shoulder shots. The HC 3,2/150 is also a prime choice for landscape photography.
