Camera with 200 megapixels – sounds tempting! Exactly that Hasselblad has done, now has launched H4D-200MS, the amazing 200-megapixel camera, at the Photokina Imaging show in Cologne, Germany. First announced in September 2010, this camera is based on the company’s older H4D-50MS that was based on the H3DII-39MS that was in development since 2000.
Camera works using a piezoelectric motor to move the sensor around slightly to capture multiple images, six to be precise, of 50 megapixel each and then stitches them together to form one gigantic 200 megapixel image. It includes all the functionality of the H4D-50 and H4D-50MS, including True Focus, Ultra Focus, digital lens correction and others and also provides three capture modes:
- Normal single-shot capture for 50MP resolution images of live subjects
- Four-shot, 50MP Multi-Shot capture for high detail images of still subjects
- Six-shot, 200MP Multi-Shot capture for the ultimate in still subject capture
The H4D-200MS is available now for $45,592. If you have the H4D-50MS, you have the option of upgrading your camera to the H4D-200MS for just $9,973. [Hasselblad]
