Live view Now available in Phocus for Hasselblad X2D 100C 

 In Hasselblad, News, Special Tech Alerts, X2D



We have been waiting for this missed feature since the X2D body’s release date. Many customers want to replace their existing “end of life” H system, but have not been able to do effectively without live view focus while being tethered. It is an essential workflow tool that is now out of beta and is a reality. Copy stands, overheads, critical focus in production environments, etc…. They all have the right option now! (Please note that this takes a body firmware and Phocus software update – Mac and mobile) And secondarily but important to many, face detection and Profoto TTL updates are now available in the body. It’s a good day for X2D users! – 770.846.5223
