Hasselblad is known for making some high-end photography equipment and it appears that they are not going to disappoint today with the introduction of the 50-megapixel H3DII-50 camera. The company is boasting the world’s largest sensor with this latest product. It’s made by Kodak and measures 36x48mm, which is twice the size of the largest 35mm DSLR sensors.
The H3DII is capable of capturing images at 1fps while creating 300 MB files with an ISO range of 50 to 400. The camera has a laundry list of other features and accessories as you might expect including a wide range of lens choices, 3″ display, CCD cooling sink for noise reduction, GPS accessory and choices for file output and media cards.
If you’re wondering why you don’t see a lot of Hasselblad cameras in people’s hands when your out and about I think I may have your answer. It’s not because it’s a bad camera, but the price on this baby can be a little tough to swallow for many. Hasselblad hasn’t released the price for the H3DII-50 yet but we know that the H3DII-39 was upwards of $35k, and the company is saying that when the new model comes out you can trade up and just pay the difference.
