A VERSATILE CAMERA BODY

The original Hasselblad X-Pan was first born as the interesting Fujifilm TX-1

 

First introduced in the Photokina September 1998, and shown in 1999 PMA, this uncommon camera is somewhat a bit different from regular rangefinder 35mm film cameras.

It is a dual format mode camera taking 24x36mm normal size or 24x65mm in panoramic mode.

When you do this you will get approximately 21 shots from a 36 exposure film or 13 shots from a 24 exposure film.

 

The TX-1 was built in conjunction with Hassleblad and branded as the X-Pan in Europe and America. These are the same camera, but the X-Pan had adifferent black finish. After some agreements the Hasselblad team began working with Fuji and they went to a Titanium body where functions are simple and traditional.

 

There were developed three lenses for the system TX-1/X-Pan. The super wide 30mm, with special extra viewfinder with bubble level, the semi wide 45mm and the short tele 90mm. All of them manufactured by Fuji under the Fujinon brand. The 45mm works out to be the equivalent of a 24mm in panoramic mode. There is slight evidence of vignetting in panoramic mode, but this can be remedied in photoshop or through the use a centre filter from Fuji.

 

Format mode can be changed whenever wanted even during shooting sessions.

Shutter speeds B 8 sec to 1/1000 sec vertical travel metal laminar focal plane of aperture priority type.

The interchangeable lenses are intended specifically for this camera.
