Phocus should allow both Live view and after the event. You can then connect an iPad by Phocus Mobile to Phocus. I don't know if there is an iPad solution that works directly to both cameras.

Have you tried just connecting a monitor to the HDMI port?

Hi @rollsman44! Just chiming in to second @BobShaw's suggestion. Connecting a monitor to your camera via HDMI should give you a larger display for checking your focus and reviewing images. An older laptop or even a portable monitor could work for this as long as it has the right HDMI input. Do check the specifications of your Hasselblad cameras for the type of HDMI they output (likely mini or micro). You'll need to get a suitable HDMI cable that matches your camera's HDMI output and the monitor's HDMI input.

Tethering your Hasselblad X1D2 or H5D-40 to a monitor, such as an iPad or a laptop, should be pretty straightforward. You can use a TetherPro USB to USB-C cable if your device has a traditional USB port, or a TetherPro USB-C to USB-C cable if it has a USB-C port. These cables are part of the Starter and Pro Tethering Kits from Tether Tools, which are designed to help you transition smoothly into a tethered workflow.

As for the software, Phocus is a free package designed for Hasselblad cameras, and it should work seamlessly with both your models. It offers a clean and uncluttered workflow, making it easier to navigate and control the editing process. You can also take a peek at this article at https://tethertools.com/blog/shooting-tethered-with-the-hasselblad-x1d/  for a more comprehensive explanation.

Be careful when using the HDMI to monitor/check focus for still pictures. Many times it is a low res image that is nothing like the 1:1 you see on your camera LCD. But Cascable for iPad works great for what you are wanting. You can use it to check focus and even capture images to the iPad. I use it once in a while when a laptop is too big/obtrusive for tethered capture.
