H6D-400c MS

 

Following in the footsteps of the H6D 100c 50c, Hasselblad has today released the H6D-400c MS, multi-shot camera and it captures 400MP images. 

Currently, the H6D-400c MS is the only professional medium format system to feature multi-shot technology and it offers an effective resolution of 400MP via 6 shot image capture, or 100MP resolution in either 4 shot Multi-Shot capture or single shot mode. 

the Multi-Shot capture requires the sensor and its mount to be moved at a high-precision of 1 or 1/2 a pixel at a time via a piezo unit and to capture Multi-Shot images the camera must be tethered to a PC or MAC.

In the 400MP Multi-Shot mode, 6 images are captured, the first 4 involve moving the sensor by one pixel at a time to achieve real colour data (GRGB- see 4 shot diagrams below), this cycle then returns the sensor to its starting point. A further two exposures are made moving the sensor by 1/2 a pixel horizontally and then 1/2 a pixel vertically (see 6 shot diagram on next page). These 6 captures are then merged to give the equivalent of a single 400MP image, delivered as a 2.4GB 16-bit TIFF (23200 x 17400 pixels), for those seeking the utmost in image quality and resolving power.

The H6D-400c MS also encompasses all of the features and functionality of Hasselblad’s standard single shot cameras:

  • 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)
  • Wi-Fi
  • HDMI & Audio I/O
  • True Focus II

The H6D-400c MS will begin shipping in March 2018 with an MSRP of £36,250 excl. VAT.
