Hasselblad announced their new model: the Hasselblad H5D-50c, the first system to use medium format sensors based on CMOS technology. Thus, it offers a significant improvement in performance thanks to this CMOS sensor.
Although the camera was seen at the CP+ 2014 and Photo Imaging Show in Japan, so far there have been no official announcements. A few weeks ago, Hasselblad surprised the market with a full frame DSLR model, something unusual for them, and now they present the first medium format model with a CMOS sensor.
Returning to the subject of the ISO performance, Hasselblad claims to have found the key, ending the limitations of these models capable of shooting without problems at up to ISO 6400. Furthermore, according to Hasselblad, this model features 12 autofocus points (C-type) which has its central shutter covering from 24 to 300mm, as well as the 50-110 zoom.
As for the other features:
- 50 megapixel CMOS sensor.
- Approximately twice as big as a conventional SLR.
- ISO 100 to 6400, allowing 14 steps of dynamic range.
- 12-minute shutter speed at 1/8000"
- Possibility of Tilt Shift via adapter.
- Capture speed of up to 1.5 frames per second.
