New Announcement: Hasselblad H6D 400c Multishot Camera

Hasselblad H6D 400c Multishot Camera

Continuing with their tradition of offering high resolution, multi shot camera systems, Hasselblad has announced their next camera in the line, the H6D 400c Multishot camera.

Designed to meet the highest imaging requirements, its 400MP image output coupled with real RGB color data for each pixel, captures every subtle nuance of the subject whether you are capturing fine cars, artworks, delicate fabrics or diamonds, put simply where only the best reproduction is acceptable – the multi-shot image offers true color and an astonishing moiré free level of detail.




PRODUCT FEATURES
The H6D-400c MS inherits all the features and functionality of our standard single shot cameras.


100MP CMOS SENSOR
At the cameras heart lies our 53.4 x 40mm 100MP CMOS sensor, with its wide ISO range, 16-bit color data and 15 stops dynamic range, it is capable of delivering stunning images even when conditions are not ideal.

USB 3.0 TYPE-C

USB 3.0 Type-C connector allows connection to any platform without the need for an adapter. It also delivers very fast transfer rates for tethered shooting, high speed data transfers and 30FPS live view.


3.0-INCH TOUCH REAR DISPLAY
The 3” high definition rear display boasts touch capability with user customization options including assigning favorite functions to touch buttons. With a resolution of 920K dots, the image display performance delivers clear, color accurate image reviews and a pin sharp Liveview experience.

DUAL MEDIA CARD SLOTS

The CFast 2.0 card slot offers very high speed data transfer rates and is uniquely qualified for use with the high data bandwidths required for HD & UHD video and continuous stills shooting. The industry standard SD card slot ensures very good data transfer rates and wide ranging compatibility with existing card readers. 
HD & UHD VIDEO
When you simply need the highest quality, the H6D-400c MS can also capture UHD (4K) video in Hasselblad’s proprietary RAW video format. 
MODULAR SYSTEM
The H6D-400c MS builds on our existing modular design offering flexibility and convenience for a range of photographic needs. Improved back removal process. 


WI-FI, HDMI & AUDIO I/O
High speed Wi-Fi gives you the freedom to preview your shots wirelessly using Phocus Mobile on an iOS device.
TRUE FOCUS II
Hasselblad’s unique True Focus ensures that the focus is accurately adjusted to give razor sharp images. 





HOW MULTI-SHOT TECHNOLOGY WORKS


Multi-Shot technology involves moving the sensor very accurately by 1 or 1⁄2 a pixel at a time with a precision piezo actuator, enabling the camera to capture more color information and data than in a single-shot capture. The captured images are then merged in Phocus, Hasselblad’s dedicated desktop software solution, to produce a single finished file with staggering amounts of detail and color information. Multi-Shot capture does require tethering to a host computer, static subject, and controlled studio environment.
In traditional single-shot imaging, each pixel receives one level of color information (Red, Green, or Blue) based on the Bayer Pattern filter. While this can produce high quality results, Multi-Shot capture adds a new dimension of image detail and color possibilities.


4-SHOT MULTI-SHOT MODE
When shooting in 4-shot Multi-shot mode, four captures are made. The 4 captures involve moving the sensor by one pixel at a time to achieve real color data (GRGB). The cycle moves the sensor 1 pixel horizontally, then 1 pixel vertically, then 1 pixel horizontally and finally 1 pixel vertically, this cycle returns the sensor to its starting point (see 4-shot image above).
This mode captures real RGB data for each pixel but the final output is a 100MP image size. The benefits are accurate color data for each pixel, no moiré interference but keeps the resolution to 100MP. The 4 shot Multi-shot capture delivers a 16-bit Tiff file size of 579MB per frame (11600 x 8700 pixels).
6-SHOT MULTI-SHOT MODE
In 400MP Multi-shot mode, 6 captures are made. The first 4 captures involve moving the sensor by one pixel at a time to achieve real color data (GRGB- see 4 shot diagram), this cycle returns the sensor to its starting point. A further two exposures are made moving the sensor by ½ a pixel horizontally and then ½ a pixel vertically (see 6 shot diagram).
These 6 captures are then combined to give the equivalent of a single 400MP capture, delivering a 16-bit Tiff file size of 2.4GB per frame (23200 x 17400 pixels), giving the ultimate in image resolution.





ELIMINATES MOIRÉ 

The advanced Multi-Shot technology eliminates moire in fine texture and detail by negating the need for interpolation.  The result is a color and detail reproduction more realistic than any other camera system.  

UNPARALLELED EASE OF USE 

The new H6D-400c MS is built on the proven H6 platform from Hasselblad.  With an intuitive touch screen, integrated WiFi, smooth live-view, and USB Type-C connectivity, you can now achieve the best in image quality without sacrificing ease of use or control.
