    Kevin,

    Thank you for inviting me to the forum! As my first post, for a little Sunday read, I just posted my first impression review of the Hasselblad X1D II. Without revealing too much, I think the camera is improved on pretty much all counts 🙂 Read on to find out all about the changes and improvements brought by this new iteration of the great little X1D:

    UPDATE AUG 20, 2019. There is a workaround for the disappearing of the long exposure counter, which was the only serious thing I didn’t like in the update and a thing I really stressed in my review, so to be fair to Hasselblad I though it correct to share it.

    During a long exposure, when the screen goes off, to wake it up again just wave your hand in front of the EVF’s proximity sensor, and the counter will pop up again (for three more seconds only, alas) without having to touch either the shutter release button, or the camera in general.

    Not only this is a viable workaround for now, but it is a solution that might make sense as an alternative to having the counter always visible as a battery saving option, and I most definitely would welcome to have it as a menu option if and when Hasselblad will bring the counters visibility back.

    I updated my review with this and other news: https://www.vieribottazzini.com/2019/08/a-first-impression-hasselblad-x1d-ii-review.html
