    Hasselblad H6D-400C Announcement

      News

    Hasselblad has just announced its new camera – H6D-400C MS, with the sensor enabling taking 400Mp photographs with the use of Multi Shot technology.

    A similar solution was used in the company’s cameras in 2014, in the H5D-200C model and later in the cameras of the producers such as Olympus and Pentax. Today, this solution is becoming increasingly popular and it has been recently used in Sony R7S III.

    100Mp sensor of the new Hasselblad works within the ISO range of 64-12800 and it offers 15-stop dynamic range. It is also equipped with a 3’’ touchscreen with the resolution of 920000 points, two SD card slots and the USB-C connector as well as Wi-Fi. True Focus II technology, known from the previous models, is responsible for autofocus.

    Thanks to the use of the sensor-shift system, new Hasselblad can work in two special Multi-Shot modes. The first one, which shifts the sensor by one pixel in four directions, makes it possible for each pixel to save full data concerning RGB compounds and to get 100Mp photographs with very precise color reproduction.

    The second mode, apart from 4 movements mentioned above, can additionally shift the sensor in two directions to the distance of ½ pixel, which makes it possible to join the expositions created in this way into one file with the resolution of 400Mp. The file will have the dimensions of 23200x17400 pixels and as a 16-bit TIFF – the size of 2.4GB.

      Hasselblad has presented its plans concerning the introduction of new lenses with XCD mounts to the mirrorless medium-format system. In this way the company wants to encourage potential buyers to invest in the system, which looks quite modest so far.

      The first lens from the announced pair which is going to appear on the market is XCD 135mm f/2.8 and the dedicated 1.7x teleconverter, which will change the lens into 230mm f/4.8. Similarly to the previous lenses from the system, this one will also offer a central shutter, which will enable flash synchronization in up to 1/2000 s.

      The 80mm lens is also going to be very interesting. As the producer assures, it’s going to be the brightest lens it has ever produced.

      Apart from that, in 2018 we can also expect the following lenses: 65mm f/2.8, 35-75mm f/3.5-4.5 and 21mm f/4.
       

      2). Hasselblad XCD Lens Roadmap

      All of the previously announced lenses are to appear on the market in the first half of 2018, excluding 80mm lens, which is going to appear on sale in the second half of the next year.

      Unfortunately, as for now, we don’t know the prices of the lenses.
