907X SPECIAL EDITION
CELEBRATING FIFTY YEARS ON THE MOON
On 20 July 1969, Astronauts Aldrin and Armstrong successfully landed on our lunar surface, becoming the first humans to step foot on the Moon. Apollo 11 was not only a huge milestone for NASA and space exploration but was also a defining moment for Hasselblad as the camera chosen to document this historic mission. Standing up against the intense temperatures and lack of gravity in space, the Hasselblad cameras captured this once in a lifetime moment flawlessly, letting the rest of Earth see what astronauts Aldrin and Armstrong experienced on the Moon. As the camera makers who enabled the capture of the iconic, legendary Moon landing photographs, we commemorate the 50th anniversary with the 907X Special Edition.
ON THE MOON SINCE 1969
The limited-edition 907X Special Edition celebrates the anniversary of the first Moon landing and the Hasselblad cameras that documented this historic event, which were left behind on the lunar surface fifty years ago. The three cameras taken on the mission were a silver Hasselblad Data Camera (HDC), a black Hasselblad Electric Camera (HEC), and a third black HEC – the first camera was used by Astronaut Armstrong to shoot on the lunar surface, the second used from inside the Eagle lunar module, and the third used by Astronaut Michael Collins aboard the Command Module Columbia in lunar orbit. The HEC used by Collins was the one camera of the three that was brought back to Earth from the Apollo 11 mission.
The 907X Special Edition includes the 907X camera body and CFV II 50C digital back, both in matte black, just like the HEC used by Collins that made it back to Earth. On the digital back is the text “On the Moon Since 1969”, commemorating the HDC and HEC left behind on the lunar surface fifty years ago. Together, the 907X and CFV II 50C connect Hasselblad’s photographic history into one system.
Hasselblad’s smallest medium format camera body ever weighing in at only 206g, the 907X is extremely thin, lightweight and built to smoothly combine with the CFV II 50C, creating a highly compact photographic package. Connecting the 907X with the CFV II 50C enables shooting with a wide range of Hasselblad optics, including all XCD Lenses and all HC/HCD, V System and XPan Lenses via adapters.
CFV II 50C
The CFV II 50C digital back features a brilliant 50-megapixel CMOS medium format sensor, individually calibrated for excellent performance, with outstanding colour depth, a huge dynamic range of 14 stops and the ability to capture full size in-camera JPEG images. Hasselblad Natural Colour Solution technology is integrated into the camera’s system, delivering superb, true-to-life tones that match what the human eye sees. Ergonomically enhanced from the previous model, the CFV II 50C now has a touch and tilt rear display in addition to an internal battery slot, making it an even sleeker package. Also used as a stand-alone back, the CFV II 50C is compatible with most V System cameras from 1957 and onwards in addition to technical and view cameras.
