with Hasselblad's product manager Ove Bengtson and talked
about the new 50 MPix medium format X1D camera,

in terms of mirrorless cameras?
- Instax cameras are also mirrorless and were a hot and
much-desired item at this year's Photokina.

audience. Do you have a photography related question that you would
like to ask David or Zack? If so, just write it in the comments
section below or contact Scott or Marco directly via the links
