Hands-on with Hasselblad X1D

The main mode dial rests in a recessed position. When you want to make an adjustment, a press on the dial makes it pop out of the body so that it can be rotated. It perhaps doesn’t pop out quite far enough as it can be a little tricky to get a grip of. The main on/off button sits behind the mode dial.

If there is one message that Hasselblad really wants to get across, it is that this camera is hand-made in Sweden. Equally, Hasselblad representatives with whom we spoke were at pains to stress that the X1D was designed and manufactured in-house and that Fujifilm isn’t involved in any way.
