Hass has direct rentals off their site - which really is crazy.  My local dealer had one of their own X1D's and one of the Hasselblad X1D's that folks would rent online.  Looks like the USA online direct rentals was shut down, but it's still live in some European countries, Hong Kong and Austrailia.  The idea that Hass would compete with their dealers in the rental market was absolute BS, plus there is the whole first experience with MF that needs to be managed & educational.  Between untraining your bad habits from the 35mm world, to uniquie challenges and trade offs in the MF world, there is an investment on both ends.

There is some very good news for those looking for used X1D Cameras with a six month Hasselblad Factory warranty. For the past week Hasselblad has listed a bunch pf X1D Cameras in their US CPO Inventory. The majority of the X1Ds have been silver in Classes 2-4 and a few black in Classes 1 & 2. The Silvers sold for around $4000 to 5700 and the Blacks were selling for around $5700 to 6300. The sales appear to be handled by the New Jersey Office and the inventory changes daily.

Toward the end of the month of June, Adorama & B&H, NYC will hold one day demo day of X1D, H6D-50C & H6D-100C cameras. That does mean the demise of X1D is exaggerated.

That will be some demo of the X1D. There are none left! [G] I would have to assume that this will be a demo of the next generation of the X1D, timed to coincide with the release of the GFX 100S.

Wonder if they've gotten the 100MP sensor into that little body?

Hope its a new body with much more potential to keep the company afloat for a few more years. PS they are not winning any race right now to the winners circle!
