World Photographic Cup
The WPC was founded in 2013 as a cooperative effort by The Federation of European Photographers (FEP) and Professional Photographers of America (PPA). Its singular goal is to unite photographers in a spirit of friendship and cooperation. A Governing Committee has been created to conduct the ongoing affairs of the competition, also supported by the UAPP (United Asian Professional Photography). The brotherhood and sisterhood of photography is a bond that transcends language, culture, and geography. That’s the foundation behind the World Photographic Cup, a one of a kind international team competition.

HASSELBLAD XCD Lenses – Precision Optics, Outstanding Imagery
Capturing the most subtle nuances of light and shadow begins with the lens. Only with excellent resolution and colour reproduction can it provide a solid foundation for imaging.

Starting with the selection of high-quality glass, Hasselblad engineers carefully grind each lens to perfect its optical quality and meet the resolution requirements of 100 million pixels.
Hasselblad XCD 90mm f/2.5 V
The XCD 2,5/90V lens features nine elements in six groups, including one ED element and one specially made large-diameter aspherical element. With a thoughtfully crafted arrangement, the lens has not only a compact size but is also able to deliver an apochromatic effect for accurate colour correction.
