Hasselblad has announced the 907X, the smallest medium format camera body ever made by the brand. Paired with the upcoming CFV II 50C digital back, photographers will be able to shoot medium format digital photography with a classic Hasselblad experience.
The new body and back will “will connect Hasselblad’s photographic history into one system,” the company says.
The CFV II 50C digital back will contain a 50-megapixel CMOS sensor that measures 43.8×32.9mm.
The back will be compatible with most V System cameras made from 1957 onwards.
Design-wise, the CFV II 50C features the look of Hasselblad’s famous medium format systems beloved by photographers over the years, so it’ll blend in perfectly when paired with older bodies.
At the rear of the back is a tilting touchscreen for handling settings, reviewing photos, and navigating menus.
The rechargeable battery is fully integrated into the back, which means less flexibility when it comes to power management but an overall reduction in size. The back can also be recharged in-camera using the USB-C port.
The ultra-compact 907X provides the smallest possible option for using a V System back.
“This combination will offer a truly distinct photographic experience, including the classic waist-level shooting style of the V System enabled by the CFV II 50C’s tilt screen,” Hasselblad says.
The 907X is compatible with all of Hasselblad’s X System lenses. And using adapters, photographers will be able to tap into lenses from the H System, the V System, and XPan. Hasselblad is also creating a line of accessories that include a Control Grip and External Optical Viewfinder.

Hasselblad will be announcing additional details, pricing, and availability for both the CFV II 50C and the 907X later in 2019.
