Hasselblad just took the wraps off what has the potential to be a groundbreaking new medium format camera: the 50-megapixel X1D. The Hasselblad X1D is being dubbed “the world’s first compact mirrorless digital medium format camera,” and from the looks of it, the X1D is certainly unique.

Hasselblad kicked off the photokina 2016 show with a bang today, announcing two new snazzy-looking medium format cameras. The new Hasseblad V1D 4116 is just a “concept” camera, at this point, but it sure looks enticing.

The new Hasselblad X1D is a very compact medium format system, thanks in part to its use of an electronic viewfinder system rather than the usual mirror box design. Based on the same sensor as the Hasselblad H5/6D-50c, the camera has a 43.8x32.9mm CMOS sensor with 50MP resolution (8272x6200 pixels).

Today we shared the news about the just announced 61MP Sony A7R IV, a full-frame mirrorless camera that has resolution on par to a medium-format digital camera. But does the new A7R IV have the same superior image quality of a medium format camera?

Last year, we told you about Hasselblad’s new H5D-50c medium format camera with Wi-Fi, which seemed pretty awesome but was a tad, ahem, pricey.
