Hi folks,

Hasselblad have introduced "the new H3DII-50, featuring the world’s largest sensor. Featuring the new Kodak 50 Mpixel sensor, measuring 36×48mm, twice the physical size of the largest 35mm DSLR sensors, the H3DII-50 is designed to meet the exacting demands of high-end commercial photographers who require the ultimate in both image quality and performance."

Here is what it looks like
    Image
and you can read all about it here.

Even better, if you are in the USA "Purchase a H3DII-39 Kit (includes 80mm lens) between now and September 30, 2008 and you can get an additional lens of your choice for $2500! Be guaranteed first access to the new H3DII-50 when it is launched in October 2008, and be able to upgrade your H3DII-39 to the new H3DII-50 at a cost equal to the difference in list price."

Go on, you know you want one... 8)

Bob.

Bob, that is an AWESOME camera, i wish I had Thousands of dollars to throw away on a nice 50MP camera, and I know I know every one says megapixel's aren't that big-a-deal, but I think 50 would produce quite and image.

I wouldn't want one even if I could afford one, looks like an old camcorder and it's a bit slow only 1fps... I'll stick with Canon.

Seriously you're comparing shooting speed????

This camera is in a whole other place to canon cameras.

I'd have one if I could afford it..

It all depends on what you photograph. Roy (aka 'Defiance') commonly shoots fast moving trains so he needs more than 1fps. The quality is certainly better than a DSLR but it all comes down to the purpose.

I don't think you will ever see a photographer shoot a Sporting event with a Hasselblad.

It's not made to do sports photography. When you compare a Canon 1ds Mark III to a Hasselblad, you are comparing two completely different types of cameras.

The Hasselblads are absolutely brilliant for true professional work in studios and on location portraiture etc'. You also don't see many professional wedding photographers use 'new' Hasselblads. You might see some, yes even today, use older medium format Hasselblads, but none of them use a 30,000.00 dollar camera for weddings. In all fairness, it's just too much camera for that. Plus it's too much to watch after.

Cameras like Hasselblad, Mamiya (RZ67 with PhaseOne Back so it's Digital), just to name a few, are used more by professional studio and portrait photographers. Guys who shoot celebrities etc'.

So every camera has it's place.

One day, I will get a Digital Hasselblad :lol:
