Hasselblad this month is introducing the new H3DII-50, the new H System flagship, featuring the new Kodak 50 Mpixel sensor, measuring 36¡Ì¨®48mm, twice the physical size of the largest 35mm DSLR sensors.
The H3DII-50 is designed to meet the exacting demands of high-end commercial photographers who require the ultimate in both image quality and performance.
The H3DII-50 will be available for delivery in October. Hasselblad is also proud to announce the upcoming launch of a new 645 sensor. Full details on the 645 sensor will be discussed at Hasselblad's Future Technology seminar at Photokina 2008 in Cologne.
In other Hasselblad news, the HTS 1.5 was announced. It provides a powerful combination of tilt, shift, and Hasselblad's DAC lens corrections to lift both your creative vision and the technical aspects of your work. The HTS 1.5 (patent pending) is compatible with the HCD28mm, HC35mm, HC50mm and the HC80mm lenses and, in effect, adds four different tilt and shift lenses to the HC/HCD lens range.
For a limited time Hasselblad is implementing a special lens offer and guarantee first access to "the world's largest" sensor. Purchase a H3DII-39 kit (includes 80mm lens) between now and September 30, 2008 and you can purchase any additional lens of your choice for $2,500 and be able to upgrade your H3DII-39 to the new H3DII-50 at a cost equal to the difference in list price when it is launched in October 2008.
