Looking at the connections on the left side of the Hassy X1D I see:

enter image description here

  • 2 SD-card slots,
  • an HDMI connector,
  • a USB connector,
  • a microphone connector,
  • and a headphone connector.

No PC socket? Doesn't the X1D have one? If it doesn't, can I use an adapter like the Nikon AS-15 Sync Terminal Adapter? (I understand Hasselblad uses a Nikon compatible hot shoe.)

  • Wow, you have a Hasselblad ! Wow : )

  • @Janas: At this moment just an (expensive) dream (the picture is from the web)! But I'm curious. Feb 6 '17 at 17:07

No, it's equpped with USB-C, mini HDMI, audio in and audio out ports. I'm guessing that they don't see this as a studio camera as many might have expected from them, but rather a more portable medium format.

  • I was wondering about the omission. I don't think a more portable camera (relatively compact and lightweight) is in contradiction to studio use, though. Thanks for your answer. Feb 6 '17 at 17:56
  • It's not a contradiction, but generally not what people would necessarily gravitate to in that setting.

  • isn't there hot-shoe-PC adapters? PC socket is used to trigger flash/strobe, correct? Feb 6 '17 at 19:36

    plus, PC socket is being replaced by wireless controllers, i guess. So its presence has little to do with studio usage Feb 6 '17 at 19:38

    PC is still used a lot, though
