Hasselblad is teasing a new product launch taking place this week, promising something that will provide “inspiration in every detail”.

A blast of emails has been sent to subscribers by the Swedish luxury manufacturer, featuring an image of a camera and lens, and announcing a “product launch” scheduled for Wednesday, September 07 at 09:00 a.m. EDT / 2:00 p.m. GMT / 11:00 p.m. AEST.

Links in emails and social media posts all point to the official Hasselblad website, where visitors are greeted with the photo and information above.

What can we say about the teaser? The body appears to be the same design as the existing Hasselblad X1D 50C (opens in a new tab) and Hasselblad X1D II 50C (opens in a new tab) cameras. The lens has a distance scale and what appears to be a focusing ring as well as a physical aperture ring.

It also wears a badge with the Hasselblad V System logo. It should be noted that Hasselblad X1D cameras support the manufacturer’s mirrorless X System mount, not V System lenses (although they are compatible using an adapter).

Luckily, we won’t have to wait long to find out what it is…
