Hasselblad H6X

Hasselblad H6X

In addition to being a modular platform for both film and digital recording, the Hasselblad H6X is a medium format SLR camera body that is compatible with a range of dedicated viewfinders and compatible backs, including the Hasselblad HC/HCD lens system.

In order to accommodate a flexible and evolving workflow, it has an H-system back interface that allows it to work with a variety of digital backs as well as the H 16-32 film magazine. The H6X additionally makes use of a single central AF point in conjunction with True Focus and Absolute Position Lock technologies to retain focusing precision when shooting in a focus-then-recompose mode, which is advantageous for fast-paced shooting while maintaining accuracy.

For added convenience, eight shooting profiles are available for swiftly switching between different combinations of settings, with seven of the profiles being entirely customizable to fit your own unique shooting demands.

Additional features include sturdy stainless steel and aluminum alloy body construction, as well as a handy lithium-ion battery grip that powers the camera while also serving as a comfortable method of holding the camera. The H6X was created with a professional photographer in mind.

H System (High-Tech System)

Designed to work with both film and digital backs that have an H interface, this camera body is also compatible with a range of alternative viewfinders and is compatible with HC and HCD lenses, as well as C-series lenses when used with the CF lens adapter.

True Focus and Absolute Position Lock are two features of the camera.

True Focus is a clever and adaptable technique that may be used to profit from the H6X’s single, central focusing point layout while working with the camera. As used in conjunction with a focus-then-recompose technique of photography, single-point AF systems perform less accurately when compared to multiple-point AF systems.

In order to produce a better picture while working at close range, True Focus and Absolute Position Lock assist in resolving this issue by compensating for tiny variations in focus position when working at close range.

Design of the Body

  • With the help of stainless steel and aluminum alloy, the designers were able to construct a camera body that is both very robust and lightweight, and that can be used in a variety of professional settings in a variety of situations.
  • The lithium-ion battery grip that comes with the camera system acts as both a power supply for the camera system and an ergonomic right-hand hold for handling the camera.
  • When operating in low-light circumstances, the integrated white LED autofocus illuminator helps to improve focusing performance.
  • The dot-matrix LCD screen, which is situated on the top plate of the body, allows you to easily inspect, alter, and confirm shooting settings while shooting in live view mode.
  • The simple and direct change of settings is made possible by the front and rear scroll wheels.


Eight profiles are provided for fast accessing preset combinations of settings, and they include Default, Full Auto, Studio, Fill Flash, two Action, and two Spare profiles that can all be changed. Default, Full Auto, Studio, Fill Flash, two Action, and two Spare profiles are also accessible.

While two extra profile slots have been set aside for customization, all of the profiles, with the exception of Default, may be renamed and modified to give you even more control over your data.
