Like the Hasselblad Digital Camera, the image quality of this medium format, sensor size 4-pound camera, is superb. You can expect a higher resolution and breathtaking images, whether you’re using auto or manual focus, with this medium format camera.

Ease Of Use

This tripod mountable leaf shutter is simple and easy to use on the menu system. Lenses are easy to adjust and raw files and raw Images can simply be saved on SD cards. Much like with the Addmotor Moran, the rear touchscreen is a snap to use and you can easily upload images via a USB-C cable. That way, you can print pictures from your digital camera.

Battery Life

Like most digital cameras, you don’t know what you’re getting when it comes to battery life. Usually, certain factors such as extra use, multiple firmware updates, and other factors determine what your battery is going to give you. But even with all these features and electronic viewfinder, this battery gives you plenty of power, just like with the Pentax 645D.

Durability

From the XCD lenses/X system to the HSII card insert, there’s nothing cheap about this camera. For the most part, the frame and all-around structure feel durable and can take a little bit of a beating without too much worry.

Value

You’re getting free shipping, a nice return policy, and excellent customer service, as well. You’re getting a top-of-the-line, medium format digital camera body and system for a price that doesn’t destroy your wallet. Although, if the price is too much for your budget, you might like alternatives such as the Fujifilm X-A7 and the Nikon Z6 Mirrorless digital camera.
