The reaches of Hasselblad cameras now go further and deeper with our latest collaboration with AquaTech to create the REFLEX Water Housing for the Hasselblad X1D II 50C. Weighing 1.6kg (3.52 lbs), waterproof down to 10 meters (33ft) and and allowing access to all XCD lenses, the highly portable REFLEX X1D II 50C allows for taking the power of medium format underwater for a whole new wave of creative expression.

As the first official underwater solution for Hasselblad’s X System, the REFLEX X1D II 50C allows for shooting with the entire XCD lens range. Balancing maximum strength and minimal weight, the glass-filled polycarbonate construction combines controls made from 316 stainless steel, hard anodised aluminium and high strength plastics for a superior tactile feel and easy control while simultaneously ensuring extreme protection against saltwater and corrosion. Facilitating simple handling when shooting stills or capturing video under water, the two electronic shutter buttons on the REFLEX X1D II 50C also enable easy capture whether shooting in landscape or portrait orientation. Navigating other settings and menu parameters can be done via the camera’s back buttons.
