A Hasselblad camera is not a reward for having achieved a successful career. A Hasselblad camera is the tool with which you build your successful career to begin with.

There is never any time like the present to start building for the future. And if you think 35mm is good enough for this stage of your career, then you'd better hope that your clients are also willing to settle for "good enough". The best clients, however, are almost never willing to settle for "good enough". And why should they, when there are photographers out there who can provide the best? And providing the best is what Hasselblad and the new H5D are all about.

The H5D features Hasselblad's legendary image quality, a new stylish and more compact design, an updated lens line, new electronics, improved AF precision and speed, increased stability and performance, and a range of other new camera functions and improved features, including:

  • More accurate focusing with True Focus II
  • New Immediate Focus Confirm
  • New print ready Jpeg files
  • New compressed multi-shot RAW files for faster and smoother workflow
  • New Camera Configurator
  • Larger and more ergonomic buttons
  • Larger, easier to read display style
  • Updated Graphics User Interface
  • More programmable buttons
  • New and improved weather sealing
  • New and faster processors implementing Hasselblad Image Processing Architecture

Both the H5D-50c MS and the H5D-200c MS are capable of live shots in 50 megapixel format, in essence providing two cameras in one package. The H5D-200c MS raises the bar a bit further, by extending our proprietary multi-shot capture technology to bring 200 megapixel resolution to your still-life and studio photography. The H5D-50c MS/200c MS digital back can also be used on view cameras by way of an H System adapter.

The MS digital back works with electronic shutters like those from Rollei and Schneider, either standalone using the flash sync signal from the shutter or together with Phocus, allowing full control of the electronic shutter from the computer. Hasselblad Multi-Shot cameras use a 50 megapixel sensor mounted onto our patented symmetrical multi-shot frame, which positions the sensor with extreme accuracy, using piezoelectrical actuators. The camera then captures 4 or 6 shots, by moving the sensor 1 and 1/2 pixel at the time, to create a 50 or 200 megapixel capture.

This process eliminates the issues which single-shot interpolation can sometimes introduce, such as moire and colour rendering problems, separately capturing the red, green, and blue information in each individual pixel point and then combining these captures into one amazing file.
