The H5D-50c Multi-Shot Medium Format DSLR Camera Body from Hasselblad houses a 50MP CMOS sensor and enables both single-shot capture and advanced multi-shot capture for improved colors, reduced moire, and increased resolution. The 43.8 x 32.9mm sensor with 8272 x 6200 pixels enables low-light sensitivity with an ISO range from 100 to 6400. In addition, the H5D-50c Multi-Shot provides shutter speeds up to 12 minutes and a fast capture rate of 1.5 fps. Single-shot images are produced in the Hasselblad 3FR lossless compressed RAW file format and are approximately 75MB, with processed TIFF 8-bit images being approximately 150MB. Multi-shot 3FR images are 250MB on average and TIFFs are 500MB.

The H5D-50c MS (Multi-Shot) differs from the standard 50c by its multi-shot capability, effectively providing two cameras in one. In single-shot mode, the "MS" offers the same medium format capture as the 50c, but in Multi-Shot mode a symmetrical multi-shot frame uses piezoelectrical actuators to move the camera's sensor in one pixel increments. Four shots of red, green, blue, and green information from each pixel are combined into one image that is free of interpolation and therefore results in more accurate colors, reduced artifacts such as moire, and heightened details.

The H5D-50c MS features the True Focus autofocus system and the new Absolute Position Lock (APL) processor which recognizes the camera movements made during recomposition and instantly adjusts focus for precision.  Hasselblad's Natural Color Solution (HNCS) creates accurate colors, with natural skin tones and an ability to capture specific product colors.

With two storage options, either to Compact Flash cards or directly to your computer via a tethered connection, the H5D-50c MS enables versatile in-studio or location usage options. The functional handling of the camera has also been improved, including grip control of zoom and menu navigation and seven adjustment profiles can be stored for easy retrieval. The ergonomic body with large grip has also been given a robust weather sealing, further enabling its use in difficult location settings. 

An updated Graphical User Interface makes menu navigation easier and the 3.0" TFT LCD display offers clear image playback. Also, the rear LCD can now show an exact copy of the grip LCD with all relevant shooting information on the big, bright screen. An integrated electronic spirit level is available in both the viewfinder and on the LCD screen. The HVD-90x Eye-level Viewfinder with 3.1x image magnification and diopter adjustment is packaged with the H5D-50c MS, but other viewfinders are available including the HVM waist-level viewfinder.

The H5D-50c MS is compatible with Hasselblad H system lens line, including 12 autofocus lenses, all with central lens shutters. A built-in central shutter allows flash to be used at all shutter speeds up to 1/800 sec, making flash photography in daylight easy. It also improves image quality by generating extremely low camera vibration.

Included with camera is Phocus software which enables you to improve workflow, including the extension of camera and image control with live video, improved metadata, GPS functions and the DAC Automated Lens Correction System which relays information about capture conditions and the specific lenses being used to fine tune autofocus and metering for improved imaging results.

50MP CMOS Sensor
The Hasselblad H5D-50c MS includes a 50MP 43.8 x 32.9mm CMOS sensor that provides the camera with improved low light sensitivity with an ISO ranging up to 6400 as well a capture rate of 1.5 fps.
Advanced Multi-Shot Mode
The advanced Hasselblad Multi-Shot (4-shot) technology eliminates the issues that the single-shot interpolation routine can sometimes introduce, such as moiré and color rendering issues, by physically moving the sensor 1 pixel at a time, thereby capturing the red, green and blue information in each individual pixel point and then combining these captures into one. This results in a true color and moiré free capture with increased level of detail as there is no need for interpolation at all.
True Focus and Absolute Position Lock
True Focus and APL provide accurate autofocus when composing and recomposing your images.
Digital Lens Correction
When supported by Phocus software, the H5D-50c MS camera allows information from the lens and exact capture conditions to be fed to the camera processor for ultra-fine tuning of the auto-focus mechanism, taking into account the design specifications of the lens and the optical specifications of the sensor. Digital Lens Correction (DAC) is an automatic correction of the images based on a combination of the various parameters concerning each specific lens for each specific shot.
Lens Compatibility
Hasselblad H System lens line (12 lenses from 24 to 300mm) with integral central lens shutter system is fully compatible with the H5D-50c MS. And all central lens shutter V system Carl Zeiss lenses are compatible via the optional CF adapter.
Customization
The H5D-50c MS can save up to seven customized complete camera settings profiles. Custom profiles can be passed to other H5D cameras.
LCD Display
The H5D-50c MS has a 3.0" TFT-type LCD display with 24-bit color and 460,320 pixels and a larger, easier to read display style. The grip-based LCD camera settings information can be made to appear on the rear LCD for a clearer view.
Viewfinder Options
Three viewfinders are available for the H5D-50c MS:

HVD 90x: 90° Eye-level viewfinder with diopter adjustment (-5 to +3.5D) and 3.1x image magnification (Included)
HV 90x: 90° Eye-level viewfinder with diopter adjustment (-4 to +2.5D) and 2.7x image magnification
HV 90x II: 90° Eye-level viewfinder with diopter adjustment (-4 to +2.5D) and 2.7x image magnification
HVM: Waist-level viewfinder with 3.2x image magnification 3.2

Tethered Operation and Storage Options
Supported in Phocus by Hasselblad and Hasselblad Tethered plug-in for Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, tethered operation is possible in the field or studio. The H5D-50c MS offers a choice of storage devices: CF cards or a computer hard drive. With these operating and storage options, you are able to select a mode to suit the nature and location of your work.
View Camera Compatibility
Mechanical shutters controlled via flash sync. Electronic shutters can be controlled from Phocus. Optional Battery Adapter for stand-alone operation of digital capture unit.
Flash Control
Automatic TTL center weighted system. Uses the flash built in to the viewfinder (Guide No. 12 at ISO 100) or flashes compatible with SCA3002 (Metz). Output can be adjusted from -3 to +3EV. For manual flashes, a built-in metering system is available. Flash can be used at all shutter speeds.
Digital Spirit Level
The H5D-50c MS camera features a Digital Spirit Level function which assists the user in accurately placing the camera vertically or horizontally. The Spirit Level is displayed on the rear LCD display and in the viewfinder.
Design
More programmable buttons and larger, more reachable buttons improve performance and workflow. Improved weather sealing allows you to shoot in the field with less worry for your camera.
Phocus Software
The HD5-50c MS comes bundled with Hasselblad's proprietary image processing software. Phocus features sophisticated lens corrections for H and V system lenses (DAC), Hasselblad Natural Color Solution (HNCS), and advanced tethered camera controls.
