Hasselblad XPan panoramic camera reinvented for the digital era

The Hasselblad XPan is probably one of the most desirable, and unusual, film cameras ever made. Unlike the medium format cameras that have made Hasselblad famous, the XPan used 35mm film to shoot panoramic images that were 65x24mm in size. 

And now Oppo is offering you the chance to shoot images with the same panoramic ratio on its latest camera phone, the Find X5 Pro. And the reason for the inclusion of this rather novel smartphone mode, is that Hasselblad is now working with Oppo to help it with its photo technology. This XPan mode was first seen on OnePlus 9 Pro and OnePlus 9 phones last year, but now that OnePlus has been merged into Oppo the tech moves to the Find X5 Pro.
