has announced the new H4D-200MS
system is now available, priced at €32,000 the camera is capable of taking 200 megapixel images by combining 6 shots from the 50 megapixel sensor. The sensor is able to move 1 and 1/2 a pixel at a time. More information is available below, as well as on Hasselblad's website
"The Hasselblad H4D-200MS’s amazing 200 million-pixel resolution brings unprecedented detail and resolution to your still life and studio photography. The H4D-200MS is the ultimate tool for any photographic application where the absolutely highest degree of resolution is required, from demanding car photography to high-end product photography and museum archiving and reproduction. The images produced by the H4D-200MS provide out-of-the-box true color, moiré free capture, and an astonishing level of detail."
"The H4D-200MS camera uses a 50Mpix sensor mounted onto our patented symmetrical multi-shot frame, which can accurately position the sensor with accuracy, using piezo-electrical actuators. The camera then captures 6 shots, by moving the sensor 1 and ½ pixel at the time, to create a 200Mpix capture. This process eliminates the issues which single-shot interpolation can sometimes introduce, such as moiré and color rendering issues, thereby capturing the red, green and blue information in each individual pixel point and then combining these captures into one amazing file."
