When you have a reputation for manufacturing the world’s most advanced medium format camera systems there is constant expectation of more to come. The tried and tested 50MP sensor has been further developed with an increased ISO range and performance in data throughout. With close to 14 stops of dynamic range, subtle details are rendered beautifully in crisp, breathtaking detail.
New Electronic Platform
The already compelling case for medium format capture has just become substantially more attractive. The entire electronic platform of the H6D has been redesigned with a fast, new generation processor to handle the advanced features of the camera. This improved speed allows a faster shooting rate of up to 2.5 frames per second that can be sustained for longer, thanks to an increased buffer.
The new 3” high definition rear display boasts touch capability with user customisation options including assigning favourite functions to touch buttons. We’ve increased the resolution to 920K dots and the image display performance delivers clear, colour accurate image reviews and a pin sharp Liveview experience.
Thanks to the redesign of the electronic platform, the H6D-50c is capable of capturing HD (2K) video in both H.264 & Hasselblad’s proprietary RAW format which can be converted to Apple ProRes format via Phocus 3.0. Coupled with the HDMI and audio facilities, the capture of high quality video output is simplicity itself.
To complement the release of the H6D camera system, our image processing software has been enhanced with additional tools to allow more precise application of corrections.
USB 3.0 Type-C Connector
We’ve opted for a USB 3.0 Type-C connector to allow connection to any platform without the need for an adapter. It also delivers very fast transfer rates of more than five times that of Firewire, ensuring tethered liveview or stills capture is an experience to be enjoyed.
Dual Card Slots
We have added a second media card slot to the storage options and updated the card types to offer maximum flexibility. The CFast 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.
Mini HDMI & Audio I/O ports
The addition of a mini HDMI port along with the associated input/output ports enables videographers to display the video feed on a larger external monitor for audio and video files. It is also a huge advantage to photographers using liveview to check composition and focus when using a technical camera.
Updated H Series Lenses
To take full advantage of the H6D’s new features, we have also updated our entire range of H series lenses and incorporated a new shutter unit with an extended lifespan and an increased top shutter speed of 1/2000th second, when used with an H6D camera. And of course, having a leaf shutter means that flash sync at all speeds is still possible.
