Owners of V-mount Hasselblad lenses will now be able to use their modern and historic glass on the front of the Hasselblad X1D. The XV adapter hinted at late last year has now been officially announced and will cost €199 / $249 / £179.

This adapter opens the X1D system to over sixty lenses that go back to the beginning of the Hasselblad square format and right up to the beginning of the H system, while the XH adapter allows the fitting of lenses up to the current day. With the XPan adapter as well, Hasselblad now has a solution to allow all its lenses to be used on the X1D.


As there are no mechanical connects between the camera and the lens adapter the X1D will only function in electronic shutter mode and of course focus and aperture control will be manual only. The adapter weighs 227g, and measures 64mm in length and 84mm in diameter.
