For those with a need for megapixels and who have a healthy bank account, check out the Hasselblad H5D-200c MS medium-format camera. How does a 600-megapixel file sound? Yours when using Multi-Shot (MS) capture technology.
Here’s how ‘Blad explains it: “Based on the 50-megapixel sensor (6200 x 8272 pixels), the H5D-200c MS offers 1, 4 and 6-shot capability. 6-shot will produce 8 bit TIFF files at 600MB each resulting in the most accurate colour rendering and resolution available on the market today in the medium format. Versatile capture with up to 12 minute exposure time. 100 to 6400 ISO. Image raw size is from 75MB with a 16 bit colour depth. Colour display is a 3 inch TFT type, 24 bit colour with 460 x 320 pixels resolution.”
At those file sizes, better stock up on CF cards, or buy a computer with large hard drive for tethered shooting.
