Hasselblad Celebrates 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11 Moon Landing with New 907X Special Edition Camera Kit

In honor of this month's 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, Hasselblad has announced the launch of a new Special Edition 907X Camera. The limited edition kits features a 907X camera body and CFV II 50C digital back in matte black with commemorative "On the Moon Since 1969" anniversary text.

Three Hasselblad cameras were originally used to document the historic moon landing, including a silver Hasselblad Data Camera (HDC), a black Hasselblad Electric Camera (HEC), and a third black HEC.

This new special edition camera kit features a 50MP sensor with support for 16-bit RAW capture and 14-stops of dynamic range. Likewise, the system includes dual UHS-II SD card slots and a 3.0-inch 920K dot touch screen. In addition, the kit is compatible with all XCD Lenses and all HC/HCD, V System and XPan Lenses via adapters.

An exact release date has not been announced yet, but the 907X Special Edition is set to retail for $7,499. Pre-orders are now live via B&H Photo-Video.
