Hasselblad, the Copenhagen-based camera maker, has launched its much anticipated ultra-high resolution camera, the H4D-200MS. Why much anticipated? Because it’s an amazing 200-megapixel camera. Imagine the photos you can take with it! The H4D-200MS has a 50-Mpix sensor on the multi-shot frame and it combines six shots to obtain the incredible high-res pictures.
It boasts all the functionalities of the H4D-50 and the H4D-50MS models and it offers three different capture modes:
• Normal single-shot capture for 50Mpix resolution images of live subjects.
• Four-shot, 50Mpix Multi-Shot capture for high detail images of still subjects.
• Six-shot, 200Mpix Multi-Shot capture for the ultimate in still subject capture.
When using the camera at “full capacity”, the images will be of approximately 600MB in size, which means you will need a lot of memory to store them – a big memory card is a must. The amazing Hasselblad camera was unveiled at the Photokina Imaging show in Cologne, Germany and is available now for €32,000 (approx. $45,000). Owners of the H4D-50MS model can choose to send their camera to Hasselblad’s factory in Copenhagen and get the upgrade for €7,000.
