Hasselblad launches XPan lens adapter for the X System

Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale. 

 – #hasselblad expands its range of accessories for the #xsystem with the new #xpan Lens Adapter, allowing photographers to use their legacy #xpan lenses on the award-winning X System

The #hasselblad #xpan lens series was released in 1998 and the new adapter bridges the iconic optics with the latest imaging capabilities from the mirrorless X1D system, just recently benchmarking the highest score by DxO Mark. The sleek new adapter is lightweight, compact, and works seamlessly into the setup.

“The original #xpan lenses inspired us when we introduced the current X1D lenses,” 

said Ove Bengtsson - Product Manager. “The new #xpan Lens Adapter speaks to two major aspects of #hasselblad, our drive to innovate and push medium format technology such as the X1D and also to our respect for the legacy equipment that many photographers still rely on to this day. This adapter is the merger of those ideas and that’s what makes this announcement so exciting.”

Customers utilizing the new #xpan Lens Adapter first are advised to update their X1D to Firmware 1.20, launched on December 19, 2017. This update also includes a new Selectable Crop Mode that features the classic proportions of the #xpan system. #hasselblad will continue to support its legacy and new products alike with plans to create a V to #xsystem adapter and a dual battery charger for the X1D.  

The #xpan Adapter will be available in mid-January and will retail at €179 / US $179 / £159 / RMB ¥ 1,580 / JPY ¥  21,999 incl. VAT.
