Of course no apologies for my post, either... Hassy has earned the right to be mocked, and also to be praised for some amazing gear that has been of value to many.

I realised that but a couple of other posts have been a bit harsh on him I thought! lol

And yes ... Hassy have definitely earned the right to be mocked.

What is this? Digital back with screen? Is it working as film back replacement for classic Hasselblad?
....I just watched video. So hard to believe it just this simple.

Yes. Forward and backward compatible.

"...Bridge the past and the present with the modernized CFV II 50C attached to a classic Hasselblad V System camera. Merge the CFV II 50C with the 907X to create a whole new combination that enables shooting with a variety of Hasselblad optics, ranging from the V System to our modern XCD Lenses. ..."

Wow!

It is a digital back to work with the V system, and a replacement for the SWC body that works with all classic and modern Hasselblad lenses with adapters. No doubt it will not be in my price range, but what a lovely thing!

The people behind the Hasselblad Lunar have been long gone for a long time. This is very cool, can’t afford one. Yet.

Great-looking Hasselblad design, and compatible with all those legacy lenses/bodies.. well done, Hasselblad! They are back in the game. Good to see!

The body profile is nuts! I guess removing the crank facilitates that.

Agree. They are very much back in the game. Design is so sexy. To be honest,this is the first MFD camera that really make me start thinking about selling my Leicas/Rolleiflexes.

Good job Hasselblad!.

How much sensor crop factor is affecting it? Is it just works as 645 instead of 6×6?

According to PDN (43.8 x 32.9 mm)

Could that be correct?

X1D II looks like a solid competitor to Fujifilm's GFX 50R.

Did anyone else see the video for the CFV II 50C digital back?

https://www.hasselblad.com/cfv-ii-50c-907x/
(Scroll down to the "Our Legacy, Your Future" video)

Who knew the folks at Hasselblad were such sentimental softies. Perhaps not a logical product versus buying a H1D II plus V lens adapter, but if they can reign in the price..?

I've been researching potential digital backs for the SWC for the past couple of years but there's always been issues in that department. This is literally what I wish for. In 10 years mabye..

Hasselblad's new product announcement of the new modular body and the updated back, coupled with the ability of the new body to use XCD series lenses as well as V system lenses via a mount adapter, is right on the money for me.

I don't know whether I'll buy any time soon, or ever, but this is what I expect from Hasselblad. And they have done it beautifully.

My Hasselblad V system is not for sale.

CFV-50C using a 50MP 43.8 x 32.9 mm CMOS sensor. So the CFV-50C mark II use the same sensor?

Yes, I believe so. Updated electronics, a new screen, etc, are what the update provides. Also likely compatibility with the 907 body.

Fit that back on the 907 body, fit that with the XCD 21mm lens, crop to a square, viola! You have a fully digital SWC, all native mounting and AF to boot...

Damn, I want one. Sigh.

So with the 907, how would one control aperture/shutter speed? Those aren’t on the lenses anymore, or?

Would have to be, right? There are no controls on the camera itself!

OW,

I'm just guessing.

My SL can be used like an IPAD. These touch screens have really advanced.

I wonder about weatherproofing? Modern AF lenses use internal focus. A touch screen with no knobs, buttons or switches suggest perhaps weatherproofing.

If weatherproof it is a big deal.

I'm certain that the controls are all soft for XCD lenses. This is what also enables the camera to be operated completely from a tethered controller.

V system lenses, of course, you work manually from the lens.

X system lenses and mount are all weather-sealed. I would bet that the 907 body is too, and seals the CFV 50C II when it is mounted.

It's not hard to shoot 'verticals' with a Hasselblad solid-state body that has a rear mounted LCD... It's just not so easy with a waist level finder on a reflex body because you have to look into the finder with the camera held sideways.

Similarly, if you fit a 500CM with the right angle prism finder, it's easy then too.

Cool video juxtaposing metaphors for analog/digital technology (no 907x in video however - using a 501cm):
