The Hasselblad H4D-200MS Medium Format DSLR Camera builds on the popularity of the company's H4D-50MS, with the addition of multi-shot capture technology which renders impressive 200MP photos. Using this mode, the camera takes 6 shots to deliver the utmost in fine imaging with images that boast spectacular detail and uncompromised quality. The 50MP sensor is mounted onto the Hasselblad patented symmetrical multi-shot frame, which positions the sensor with sub-micron accuracy using piezo-electrical actuators. Bayer-patterned pixels are used to create the jaw-dropping 200MP capture. The H4D-200MS also captures in normal single-shot, at 50MP for live subjects, and in multi-shot capture for 50MP, with 4 shots, for increased detail of still subjects. It features a large, 3" (7.6 cm) TFT LCD with 24-bit color and a 230,400-pixel resolution.
The 36.7 x 49.1mm imaging sensor produces images with the industry staple 6 x 4.5cm 'negative'. Working with a window of this size gives the photographer more latitude in post-production or when composing. Additionally, Digital Lens Correction (DAC) enters the mix to perfect already stunning images. When the images are processed with the included Phocus software, the DAC removes chromatic aberration, distortion, and vignetting. Phocus, the chosen software of Hasselblad, works with both Mac or PC machines, making professional workflow seamless, no matter which operating system the photographer is running.
The H4D-200MS is versatile. In the way of lens choices - using the H System Mount - all lenses of the H system line can be used with the camera. The H system lens line uses central lens shutters, which allows a flash to be used at shutter speeds up to 1/800 second. On the H4D-200MS, that means a flash or strobe can be synced with the camera at every shutter speed up to 1/800th. Another option that is possible with the 200MS is digital capture with a view camera, using an H system adapter. Numerous accessory options help to configure the H4D-200MS just the way the photographer wants it.
