HASSELBLAD’S 400 MEGAPIXEL STILL CAMERA

Instagrammer's need not apply. The new H6D-400C is pitched at the professional photographer that specialises in ultra-high definition still images. Think art galleries and museums.

Hasselblad released its 200-megapixel H5D camera a few years ago. The new version takes four 100-megapixel images and shifts the sensor by one pixel for each shot. A further two more shots are then taken with a half-pixel shift before all six still shots are combined for a final resolution of 23,200 x 17,400 pixels.

The 16-bit 2.4Gb TIFF image file is so large the H6D-400C apparently needs to be tethered to a computer the whole time.

Hasselblad says its H6D-400C will be available in March and will retail for US $47,995 (AUD $60K)
