We are reaching a point where HD is constantly redefining itself. There’s an argument to be made that eventually, the discrepancy between one resolution and the next will be so saturated in detail, the human eye will not even be able to process it. But in the meantime, these upping of stakes is a welcome house guest to the definition party. And coming in fashionably late is the Hasselblad H6D-400C MS, with a jaw dropping 400MP image resolution.
This new piece of photographic hardware apparently “… encompasses all of the technological functions of Hasselblad’s H6D single shot camera…”, with the added bonus of “… resolution and colour fidelity leaps that only Multi-Shot photography can bring to image capture…”.
All you Helmut Newtons out there will be able to achieve an effective resolution of 400MP via six shot image capture, or 100MP resolution through either four shot Multi-Shot capture or single shot mode.
The H6D-400C MS makes a composite from six separate exposures with its 100MP sensor, one pixel at a time for the first four and capturing GRGB colour data. The final two exposures are captured with half pixel shifts. This means you can alter the image’s resolution from 100MP to 400MP, producing 2.4GB 16-bit TIFF images at 23200×17400 pixels. 4K video capabilities goes without saying.
Additionally, the base specs of the camera are as follows:
- 15-stop dynamic range, ISO range of 64-12800 (100MP CMOS sensor)
- USB 3.0 type c connection for tethered shooting, high speed data transfers & 30FPS live view
- Dual media card slots: CFast 2.0 and SD card
- 3.0-inch touch rear display
- Smartphone style user interface
- HD & UHD video
- Modular system with improved back removal process
- Technical camera connectivity (single shot)
- HDMI & Audio I/O
- True Focus II
The Hasselblad H6D-400C MS is now available for pre-order at a price point of $48,000 USD.
