Representing the new standard of ultra-high-quality medium format cameras, the Hasselblad H6D100c is capable of recording a phenomenal level of detail and dynamic range thanks to its large 100MP CMOS sensor. The camera's performance has also been upgraded thanks to a new-generation processor, which ups the shooting rate to 1.5fps and allows this speed to be sustained for longer with an increased buffer. A superb marriage of image quality and performance.
Key Features: Hasselblad H6D-100c Medium Format Digital Camera
For the photographer who demands nothing less than the best from their digital camera, Hasselblad presents the H6D-100c. Its large sensor offers an almost full field-of-view from HC & HCD wide angle lenses and is capable of recording breathtaking detail, even in poor lighting conditions.
The all new H6D-100c is the latest generation of H System cameras and offers the highest quality output from any digital camera in today's market.
100MP CMOS Sensor
Continuing the success story of the 50MP CMOS sensor Hasselblad has added a 100MP option to the range, delivering unmatchable image quality and the ability to resolve the finest detail with HC & HCD lenses, whose pedigree has long been proven through use with 200MP Multi-shot systems. The 100MP sensor boasts an incredible 15 stops of dynamic range, allowing for maximum detail to be captured in both highlight and shadow areas. The sheer breadth of tonality that can be captured with the H6D-100c has to be seen to be believed.
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 1.5 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. Hasselblad has increased the resolution to 920K dots and the image display performance delivers clear, colour accurate image reviews and a pin sharp Liveview experience.
UHD & HD Video
Thanks to the redesign of the electronic platform, the H6D-100c is capable of capturing both HD (2K) and UHD (4K) video in Hasselblad's proprietary RAW format which can be converted to Apple ProRes format via Phocus 3.0. HD footage can also be captured in H.264 format which is compatible with all popular editing packages. 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, Hasselblad's image processing software has been enhanced with additional tools to allow more precise application of corrections.
USB 3.0 Type-C Connector
Hasselblad has 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
Hasselblad has 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 live view to check composition and focus when using a technical camera.
Updated H Series Lenses
To take full advantage of the H6D's new features, Hasselblad has also updated its 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.
