Hasselblad Announces 50-Mp Digital Camera On Kodak's New CCD

Hasselblad announced its new H3DII-50 medium-format digital camera based on the 50-megapixel CCD recently announced by Kodak. As you might remember, the size of its photosensitive area are twice as large as a usual 35mm frame.

To reduce noise Hasselblad equipped the CCD with a forced cooling system. With quad-channel flash media access, the camera captures a single image in 1.1s. At that, it captures 65MB RAW 3FR or 150MB TIFF images. In other words, a 2GB CF card can store about 30 images. The storage capacity can be expanded with a 100GB external solution.

The camera offers exposures from 32s to 1/800s, ISO 50-400 (expandable to ISO 800 with Hasselblad Phocus software) and connects to PC via FireWire 800 (IEEE1394b).

With the HC80 lens the camera is sized 153x131x213 mm, weighing 2,290g. Other features include the full support of all Hasselblad lenses.

The H3DII-50 is expected to go on sale this October. It's interesting that the company offers owners of 39-Mp H3DII-39 to exchange their cameras to the novelty for the difference in price. Though the price H3DII-50 hasn't been announced yet, you can estimate it considering that H3DII-39 costs about 37,000 USD.
