This morning at Photokina in Cologne Hasselblad announced two new products and a new concept in camera design: the X1D ‘4116 edition’, the XCD 30mm lens and the V1D 4115 Concept.

The V1D 4116 Concept is Hasselblad’s way of looking into what the future of camera tech may be. The V1D is a modular square format (75MP) camera that is inspired by the classic Hasselblad V Camera. The idea behind the V1D is a full-customizable camera body that includes modules on all four sides. The left and right sides have round fixings for controls and grips, while the top and back could carry displays, viewfinders or accessories.
