Review: Hasselblad Xpan (1998)

This is my review for the Hasselblad XPan, a 35mm rangefinder camera that exposes 24mm x 65mm panoramic images on regular 35mm film. The Xpan was made in Japan and was a name variant of the Fujifilm TX-1. The Xpan was an extremely expensive and high quality camera with a focal plane shutter, a modern automatic exposure system, a fully motorized film transport, and a selection of high quality lenses. In addition to true panoramic images, it can also shoot regular 24mm x 36mm images making it the first purpose built dual format 35mm camera on the market.
