Hasselblad X1D II 50C

BUG: Hasselblad X1D II Hangs with 16 Second or Longer Exposure

Hasselblad X1D II firmware v 1.1.0. Lens firmware 0.5.40.
Same issue with Hasselblad X1D II firmware v 1.2.0. Lens firmware 0.5.40.

Brand-new X1D II 50C with latest firmware and brand-new lenses. Symptoms persist after redoing firmware on camera and lenses as per instructions from Hasselblad. Happens with every lens (35-75, 65/2.8, 80/1.9, 135/2.8).

I lost and am losing numerous fine images from this bug and have been unable to make images in pre-dawn or late dusk conditions where the balance of lighting between sky and mountains is at its best. For the better part of a week, violent winds have ruled out daytime work (even ignoring the harshly unpleasant daytime light near the summer solstice), settling down only at the edges of the day, when the camera won’t operate properly once the exposure time gets to 20 seconds.
