Bringing well-rounded shooting capabilities to the medium format realm, the Hasselblad H6D-100c revolves around an impressive 100MP 53.4 x 40mm CMOS sensor to produce high-resolution stills as well as UHD 4K video. Making use of the CMOS design, this sensor affords a wide sensitivity range of ISO 64-12800, along with 16-bit color depth and a dynamic range of up to 15 stops to maintain notable detail and quality when working in the most difficult of lighting conditions. Coupled with an enhanced electronic platform with faster processing capabilities, continuous shooting speeds up to 1.5 fps are possible, as well as the ability to shoot both UHD 4K and Full HD video at 30 fps in the Hasselblad RAW format. 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.

100MP CMOS Sensor
Revolving around a large 100MP CMOS sensor, measuring 53.4 x 40.0mm, the H6D-100c is capable of capturing an extremely wide dynamic range of up to 15 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 64-12800 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 1.5 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 both UHD and Full HD video.
UHD 4K and Full HD Video
In addition to high-resolution stills shooting, the H6D can also record both UHD 4K and 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. Full HD 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
  • Built-in 3.0" 920k-dot touchscreen LCD affords intuitive control over settings navigation and adjustment, and also permits bright, clear live view monitoring.
  • USB 3.0 Type-C connector offers transfer speeds of up to 5 Gbps for quick and responsive tethered live view and stills capture.
  • In addition to tethered shooting, dual memory card slots are incorporated into the back for flexible storage capabilities. One CFast card can be used for fast read/write speeds, which are necessary for continuous shooting or UHD 4K video recording, and one SD slot is provided for backup storage and wide compatibility with existing cards and card readers.
  • Benefitting video applications, as well as working with the back on technical view cameras, a Mini HDMI port permits use of an optional external monitor for clear monitoring. Additional, audio in/out ports are provided for more flexible control over audio recording during video.
  • Built-in Wi-Fi enables working with an iOS mobile device and the Phocus Mobile app for remote camera control, wireless image previews, and file browsing.
  • Compatible with the updated range of HC and HCD lenses, which feature an improved leaf shutter unit for increased shutter and flash sync speeds of up to 1/2000 sec.
  • Designed within a modular system, the H6D is comprised of the digital back, camera body, and an included HVD 90x viewfinder. Beyond the included components, additional optional viewfinders, film backs, and other accessories can also be used in conjunction with the digital back or the H6D body.
  • Phocus 3.0 is a free image processing software that complements the H6D's capabilities, and enables raw file processing for both stills and video, as well as a range of editing capabilities, including automatic moiré detection and the ability to work with adjustment layers for applying exposure, white balance, and color corrections.

Hasselblad H6D-100c Reviews

Best Studio Camera

By Richard
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-03-24

As far as studio cameras go, this camera is in a totally different league. Picture quality is outstanding. That is what it is designed for, and that is what it does better than other cameras I have used - from picture quality and ease of handling. I have (and have used) Leaf backs for Hasselblad-V and Leaf Afi (Rolleiflex HY6) cameras and Hasselblad H4d-60. I have not used the current generation Phase One cameras and backs so I cannot compare it to them. I generally use it in live view composing and focusing looking through the back. Pretty much the way I shot studio work back in the 60's with 4x5 and 8x10. I wish the LCD on the back titled (although you can always tether it for viewing and capturing - I generally don't bother). Live view goes thru batteries quickly, so have 3 or 4 and keep one on the charger. For long sessions I use the AC power supply from the H4D-60. I have used almost all of their lenses and have no complaints. (I did have an iris problem on a 100mm lens I originally bought used, and it required a whole shutter replacement -$1800, but it is now basically a new lens). The autofocus is slow and deliberate - it is not suited for action shooting unless your focus point is in the center of the frame. I use it with the focus assigned to a back button so I can focus and compose separately. In the studio I generally use live view and focus manually. It is NOT a camera that can do anything (why would you want to use this for video?) - but it does take pictures of a quality that is stunning. (I bough mine used from a landscape photographer who was moving on to other things).

I'm coming from an H5D-50c and the big draw for me was the 1.0 crop factor, and the newly designed electronics that have USB 3.0. It feels exactly like the previous H bodies, but the back is totally new. The interface is smooth and silky like an iPhone. The images themselves - breathtaking clarity. There's something about a photo taken on a sensor this large that can't be duplicated by other systems. So far the results out of the camera into Phocus have been tremendous - definitely better than the H5D-50c. I would honestly rate it 5 stars, but I had major issues out of the box with the firmware. The system kept crashing, and I spoke with Hasselblad. The H6D is shipping with a version of the firmware that isn't yet public on their website (1.12.2), and it just wouldn't work right. I downgraded to the published version of 1.12.1 and it's been smooth sailing since. But they get dinged for sending me a camera that costs more than a BMW that had wiggy firmware.

video recording without auto focus ?!?!? OMG!!!

By Azedine
Rated 1 out of 5

The video recording is useless on this camera because it's not autofocus, so when you move around you have to manually constantly focus by hand ; good luck!!! and it's not automatically focus because HASSELBLAD has no experience in autofocus. Also video has no mic so you need to buy a mic and constantly leave it plugged in case you are expecting to do a video unprepared depending of what's happening around you, so it's very cumbersome and unpractical. Also video doesn't work like a regular video it take pictures 24 fps and make a video out of it. Now last and as problematic as the auto focus inexistant, there are videos online showing that with a lens as close to what film should be, the video looks deformed not looking like a film camera at all. And the price for this blunder... Now camera side it's worst, the auto focus works but is about the worst in the business so much so that I managed to many times get a subject that wasn't moving, I wasn't moving either and subject was 5feet away and still managed to get the picture blurry using the camera autofocus!!! How could this happen you wonder???? Well the lenses are so big and not properly designed that you hear the motors struggling to go forward and backward rapidly which rapidly is a joke here, so it's slow very slow and when you focus on your subject in the midst of a photo shoot I manage to have the lens not finding the proper focus area and later on realized that the shot was blurry OoooH Nooooo. I never experienced a camera that was giving me blurs in the circumstances that this camera gave me blurs ; absolutely unbelievable, and it happened in many different occasions... There are 100M pixel cameras out there that are a quarter the price and don't have these issues.

Coming from a full frame phase back to this is actually a little mind blowing. The HNCS is not something to sleep on. There is a clear reason Hasselblad is being used for color repo by the likes of the Met, Guggenheim, etc. I almost want to give it 4 stars because of phocus but honestly I just can't. This camera deserves 5. This is the first camera that I do not need to spend endless hours in post fixing color. I pray Hasselblad continues to support this camera.

The HM 16-32 works on all H-series cameras and should work without issue with the H6D-100c with its digital back removed. You could also go for the H6X as well, which comes sans H6D-100c digital back: https://bhpho.to/3Exg05e

question

What kind of audio does it record in video?
Asked by: Christopher T.
Hasselblad states that the audio files are saved as an audio.mp4 file. The file is a 720p version of the RAW video and the sound encoded in AAC. This is done to keep the video and audio in sync.
