Earlier this summer Hasselblad unveiled the X1D, the first-ever medium-format mirrorless camera, and the Swedish brand is following up that effort with the V1D Concept. The 75-megapixel shooter is loosely based on the classic Hasselblad V, but it has an innovative modular construction that can be customized to suit the user. Hasselblad refers to the camera as a "black box," one that can be fitted at the top and back with displays, viewfinders and holders for accessories, as well as sides that can be fitted with controls, grips and the like

Unlike the V1D, which is strictly a concept camera, Hasselblad's new "4116" edition of the X1D will be available in stores. The 50-megapixel shooter is unchanged in terms of performance, but features an all-black design inspired by the V1D, complete with a leather hand strap and custom packaging. The $13,000 model also comes with a $2,300 XCD 45mm lens.
