Hasselblad has just released what it’s calling “the largest firmware update to any Hasselblad camera at one time,” updating the mirrorless medium format X1D II 50C and the 907X Special Edition with several highly-requested features like video recording, focus bracketing, and better white balance tools.

The latest in our video series on photographers in their favourite environments was filmed last November, but now feels like a lifetime ago.
