Hasselblad Announces 907X, CFV 100C Share This on LinkedIn   Tweet This   Forward This

24 January 2024

Hasselblad has announced its 907x camera body and CFV 100C digital back, fusing modular design with advanced technologies to offer several different photographic abilities. The 907x and CFV 100C's new 100-Mp back-illuminated sensor doubles the resolution of its predecessor, the 907x and CFV II 50C.

The 907X body functions as an adapter between similar backs and Hasselblad XCD lenses. It provides a smaller and lighter package than a Hasselblad V-series body with Zeiss V-series lenses, and adds autofocusing.

The CFV 100C V-series back is based on the X2D 100C technology. While the sensor is the same and image quality comparable, there is no image stabilization or EVF.

The CFV 100C back can be used in several ways, among which are:

  • With a Hasselblad V-series body using manual focus with the Zeiss lenses made for that body
  • With the 907x adapter and autofocus X-series lenses
  • On a tech camera like an Arca Swiss, to use of short lenses not adaptable to the X2D 100C


Highlights of the new system include:

  • 907X camera and CFV 100C digital back
  • 100-megapixel 43.8x32.9mm BSI CMOS sensor
  • 16-Bit color, 15-stop dynamic range
  • Hasselblad Natural Color aolution
  • 294-point phase detection autofocus
  • 3.2-inch 2.36m-dot rear touchscreen LCD
  • ISO 64 to 25600
  • Internal 1-TB SSD
  • CFexpress Type B memory card slot
  • WiFi and USB-C 3.1 Gen 2 connectivity

In Hasselblad CFV 100C on Hasselblad 907X, Jim Kasson reviews the new system after evaluating preproduction units last fall. He concludes:

Bottom line: if you're a tech camera user -- or want to be a tech camera user -- or have a V-series Hasselblad and a collection of V-series Hasselblad lenses that you'd like to use with a digital back, this is an excellent camera for you. Top-notch build quality, great tethering, a modern sensor, ability to use your XCD lenses in a pinch and a great user interface.

In First Camera Announcement: Hasselblad, Thom Hogan. He writes:

Personally, I like this new camera better than even the X1D, as it returns to something that was valued in the studio (and to some degree, in the landscape photography world). That, of course, is not hiding the photographer behind the camera. In the studio with the old look-down finders, a Hasselblad user could stay in eye to eye contact with their subjects, only occasionally glancing down to check composition. If you use a camera with an eye level viewfinder in the studio, you have to take the camera from your eye and ready-to-snap position to engage your subject.


Hasselblad said the 907x and CFV 100C pair os available now for $8,199. Adorama and B&H are both now accepting orders.

Hasselblad Unveils the 907X and CFV 100C:

Enhancing Medium Format Photography With Versatility and Unmatched Image Quality

Hasselblad has introduced the 907x and CFV 100C, a fusion of modular design and advanced technologies that offer three distinctly different photographic abilities, presenting the most compatible Hasselblad 100-megapixel medium format camera to date. Building on its iconic design, the 907x and CFV 100C has been upgraded with a new 100-Mp back-illuminated sensor, doubling the resolution of its predecessor, the 907x and CFV II 50C.


907x Camera Body

The 907x and CFV 100C combine to create the smallest and most powerful medium format camera in the industry. This dynamic combination is compatible with all XCD, HC/HCD and Xpan lenses, uniting high optical lenses to produce the best image straight out of the camera.

Hasselblad V System Film Cameras

The CFV 100C breathes new life into Hasselblad V System cameras, such as the 500 and 200 series. Photographers can use their beloved film camera with the powerful CFV 100C sensor to produce the same picture quality of the digital age while also providing the unique experience of shooting at waist level. The CFV 100C keeps a classic timeless in every sense of the word.

Technical Cameras

With the CFV 100C, technical film cameras will reap the benefits of its 100-Mp sensor, helping photographers, museums or institutions meet rigorous and precise photographic needs. The 3.2-inch touchscreen display and 2.36 million resolution, with its superior flexibility and colour richness, provide photographers with an easy-to-use experience and a cost-effective digital solution for a technical camera.


The 907x and CFV 100C provide users with the unique experience of capturing images at waist level. Its classic design, waist-level viewfinder, leather-like coverage and chrome frame are tailored for individuals who seek to showcase their unique taste and appreciation of vintage aesthetics. The viewfinder can be tilted upward from 40 to 90 degrees to provide photographers with a range of perspectives.


The CFV 100C, combined with the Hasselblad Natural Colour Solution, ensures colours are captured with unparalleled accuracy, reproducing scenes just as the human eye perceives them. Photographers can capture their subjects with true and natural colour presentation in both JPG or Raw format. With a 16-bit colour depth, the CFV 100C presents approximately 281 trillion colours, providing photographers with an extensive palette for capturing the full visual spectrum. The CFV 100C introduces an ISO sensitivity as low as 64, producing image quality that is delicate, pure and rich in lifelike details. With an impressive 15-stop dynamic range for preserving rich light and dark details, the CFV 100C ensures a smooth and natural transition in every image, allowing photographers to push creative boundaries.


The 907x and CFV 100C introduce users to its Phase Detection Autofocus with 294 zones spread over the 100-Mp sensor surface. Covering an impressive 97 percent of the focus range, this advanced autofocus technology ensures every shot is sharp and precisely focused. Its face detection capabilities make capturing portraits easier in various locations.


The CFV 100C boasts a remarkable 1TB of built-in storage space, marking it as the first modular camera with built-in storage capabilities. The 1TB of built-in storage space allows users to store up to 4600 Raw images directly on the camera. This exciting new feature eliminates photographers' concerns about running out of storage during crucial moments or not being able to locate a memory card.


The 907x and CFV 100C weighs 120g less than the 907x and CFV 50C, making it lightest, smallest and high-resolution medium format camera in the industry. The reduction in weight enhances comfort during extended shoots, minimizing fatigue and contributing to improved stability for handheld photography.


The Hasselblad 907x and CFV 100C has an MSRP of €7,799 and $8,199. It is now available to order online. See details of the new product at
