Hasselblad have announced their latest medium format imaging monster – the 40 megapixel H4D-40. Built around a 33 x 44mm CCD sensor it has 70 percent larger imaging area than a regular full-frame DSLR.
The H4D-40 sports the new Absolute Position Lock processor, which tracks the movement of the camera and does the necessary corrections when recomposing. It also packs the True Focus AF system of its bigger brothers – the H4D-50 and H4D-60.
I won’t be getting into much more detail as anyone who is willing to shell out 20 000 US dollars on a camera kit (including the body, the viewfinder and 80mm lens) should probably know what they are doing.
