Now suitable for multimedia image-makers, the H6D maintains its exceptional stills recording capabilities and adds versatile video recording abilities to its skill-set.

Beyond imaging, the H6D also sports improved connectivity with the inclusion of a USB 3.0 Type-C connector for fast 5 Gbps transfer speeds and more fluid tethered shooting performance. The back itself incorporates a bright, clear 3.0" 920k-dot touchscreen LCD monitor for live view shooting and intuitive settings control, and a Mini HDMI port is available for working with larger external monitors. In-camera saving is possible via dual memory cards slots-one CFast slot and one SD slot-and files can also be saved remotely when shooting tethered over USB 3.0. Built-in Wi-Fi can also be used in conjunction with iOS devices running the Phocus Mobile app, which permits wireless remote control of the camera as well as the ability to preview imagery and browse files.

50MP CMOS Sensor

Revolving around a large 50MP CMOS sensor, measuring 43.8 x 32.9mm, the H6D-50c is capable of capturing an extremely wide dynamic range of up to 14 stops along with vivid 16-bit color depth. When combined with the Hasselblad Natural Color Solution, tonal transitions and skin tones show immense depth, detail, and clarity for lifelike image quality, even in dark shadow and bright highlight regions. To suit working in a variety of lighting conditions, a sensitivity range of ISO 100-6400 is available, and still files are saved in the Hasselblad 3FR raw file format.

Updated Electronic Platform

An improved electronic processing platform offers quicker performance throughout the camera system, along with more flexible connectivity options. A continuous shooting rate of up to 2.3 fps is available, along with an expanded buffer compared to previous H-series cameras for longer sustained shooting. This platform also expedites the handling of the large image sizes and permits recording Full HD video.

Full HD Video

In addition to high-resolution stills shooting, the H6D can also record both Full HD 1080p video at 30 fps. Video can be saved in the proprietary Hasselblad RAW format, which can be converted to the edit-friendly Apple ProRes format using Phocus 3.0 software, or video can also be saved in the H.264 compressed format for greater editing flexibility with a variety of software options.

System Design and Connectivity

Hi, I'm looking at upgrading my tools and decided ...

Hi, I'm looking at upgrading my tools and decided to get either the X1D II or the H6D-50c. Since they have same sensor size, bit depth, and megapixels what would the benefit be to spedning much more on the H6? Does it have better colour accuracy / tones etc as it seems to be same CMOS sensor? Are the X lenses lower quality than H ones? I see there are some more lenses available for the H but would there be much or any deterioration with using the XH adapter? Sorry I haven't been able to find any direct comparisons and unable to rent either in my country.
Asked by: Cameron
The X1DII is more compact and lighter weight . The H6D-50C has a bigger selection of lenses . Both have similar sensors . The X lenses are lower quality than H lenses .

question

Ive always wanted a Hassleblad, dont ask why :) .. I have a Pentax 645Z,, there is a .79 cropfactor does the H6D50c also have one? If so, what is it?
Asked by: Robert
You’ll find the same .79 crop factor with the H6D-50C as they are the same sensor size. And as per owning a Hasselblad, I’m sure we all have the same feeling, because it’s a Blad 😁

question

can you use the HDMI on the Hasselblad h6d-50 to live view it or just use the wifi live view?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, both the HDMI output and the Wi-Fi Live View feature would be able to display video wirelessly. If you are using an external monitor, the HDMI output would be recommended for your needs. For wireless needs, the Wi-Fi Live View would work with compatible iOS smartphones and/or tablets when using the Hasselblad Phocus Mobile app.
