Novoflex Lens Adapters for Hasselblad X1D Digital Camera
Pricing and Availability To Be Confirmed
The mirrorless medium format camera Hasselblad X1D is one of the most advanced cameras in the HighEnd sector. The sensor size of 43.8 mm x 32.9 mm with a resolution of 50 megapixel is the best choice for both – professional photographers and prosumers. The only disadvantage is that Hasselblad offers only a small number of lenses. Since the firmware update 1.17.2, however, the camera incorporates an electronic shutter, allowing the use of lenses from other manufactures. That is why NOVOFLEX is now announcing a series of lens adapters allowing 35mm and medium format lenses to be used on the Hasselblad X1D camera.
Adapters coming soon for:
Leica R Lenses
Leica M Lenses
Nikon F (including G lenses)
Hasselblad V Lenses
Available April 2018
Canon FD Lenses
Minolta MD/MC Lenses
NOVOFLEX BALPRO Universal Bellows
Especially interesting are the lens adapters for 35mm-format mount for tilt-/shift lenses, as their image circle is always big enough, to fully illuminate the larger sensor format of the X1D. However, many 35mm-format lenses have an image circle which is bigger than the actual 35mm-format itself, this results into only marginal vignettings. In addition, many old or classic 35mm-format lenses are based on lens calculations of large or medium format lenses. Potential vignetting could be used creatively or cases later corrected through software. None of the adapters will transfer information between camera and lens.
