Learn how to set up your Hasselblad Camera

The X2D 100C is a ground breaking camera - by far the most advanced and fully featured camera Hasselblad have ever released.

This guide will show you how to set it up correctly for maximum performance!

  • Advanced Features

    Th X2D introduces a host of new options. Of course you can use as many or as few of them as you like - but knowing where the options are, and what they do, empowers you to get the most from your equipment.

  • Get the most from your camera

    The X2D is incredibly flexible and robust camera, but it also brings some interesting challenges. Camera manuals do a good job of explaining the difference between what different setting's technically - this guide takes it a step further by explaining and demonstrating how, when and why you might want to use different options.

  • Create User Profiles

    If you like to photograph a variety of different things, you can set up your camera with different user profiles for each one. Landscape, portrait, macro, street photography etc. Simply set up each profile, and you're away.

Hear what my Camera Guide Custumers are saying...

I can now use my camera with full confidence

John Roche

“Having invested in the new Nikon Z9 I was anxious to understand and learn all the features as soon as possible. I purchased Matt’s Nikon Mirrorless Expert guide having read it was updated to cover the new Z9. I have found it really helpful not only in understanding the differences from my Z7 but also in helping me understand some general Z series items that frankly would have helped me when I had the Z7. The videos are well made and contain useful practical examples as well as good technical explanations. The Suggested customs settings are very helpful and have made shooting different subjects much more efficient. Every single menu item is clearly explained and I found the sections very helpful in allowing me to take each section separately over a period of a few days. The cost is a very small price to pay given the speed at which I can now use my Z9 with full confidence.”

John Williams

Great course - strongly recommended.

The information is presented in 'bite sized' pieces which are indexed, and easy to go back to as needed. It clearly demonstrates all the menu features, and how to use the function buttons.

Additionally Matt provides some specific settings he recommends for different shooting styles, but more importantly armed with the information in the course you will have the knowledge to effectively set up your own customs function buttons, shooting banks, and the imenu to insure you take advantage of all the features that will be key to your preferred type of shooting.

A true pro

Always a pleasure to watch Matts videos, so well thought out, presented and articulated, leaving the viewer engaged , entertained and realise that this is all coming from a true industry professional, Thanks Matt !!

Detailed Presetation

Ronald Pollard

Your Professionalism is extremely appreciated Matt. Your observations are also reasonable and rational. Thank you for this very detailed Presentation Bro!!

Excellent Investment!

Glen Bardot

Hi Matt, I just completed your "Nikon Mirrorless Expert Setup Guide V2.1" tutorial for the Z9, and it was well worth the investment of both time & $$$.

I found your "deep dive" into the menu and customization options particularly helpful and informative. It's amazing how quickly menu and setup information can be forgotten when not used & accessed on a regular basis. Obviously, that information is second nature to you at this point.

Comprehensive

Wilson Silverthorne

Matt you are killing it!!! So much comprehensive Z9 material. You are absolutely hitting what people are wondering about and want to see. Huge thanks for your extraordinary effort. You are a 100% hit rate on pertinent content. Kudos dude

Thank you

T. Rob Brown

Thank you for your knowledge and experience.

Bruce Ashmore

Thanks for another comprehensive easy to understand guide.

I downloaded the Z Mirrorless Camera Guide because I preordered a Z 9 through your link to B&H Photo and wanted to get a head start on understanding all the menus and functions.

I even learned some things that apply to my Nikon DSLR that I hadn’t understood fully before.

Now if only I could get the camera and start using it.

Duane Smith

I just finished the Nikon Set Up guide.

Fantastic.

What a great way to get up to speed with the Nikon mirrorless. I am new to that and just getting back into photography so has increased my knowledge and confidence in the tools dramatically.
