The Hasselblad Release Cord X allows for remote shutter control, helping to eliminate shake or vibration. A durable cloth-wrapped 90cm (36 in.) cable connects to the X1D-50c's microphone input port and the remote's simple single button operation allows photographers to keep vibration to a minimum. When autofocus is enabled on the camera, a single action swiftly starts autofocus and then releases the shutter.
Holding the button down while in Continuous Capture mode allows for multiple frames to be captured, while setting the camera in Manual Focus mode allows for Release Cord X to fire the shutter without delay. Its durable metal construction combined with its slim, ergonomic design fits comfortably in the hand. Release Cord X comes with a small leather carry pouch.
