Hasselblad H6D-400C MS Multi-Shot Camera Body
The Highest Resolution and Most Colour Accurate Medium Format Images Available
Once again Hasselblad has pushed image quality to the limit with Hasselblad's latest Multi-Shot camera. The amazing H6D-400c MS, delivers the highest resolution, most colour accurate medium format images available on the market today.
Designed to meet the highest imaging requirements, its 400MP image output coupled with real RGB colour 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 colour and an astonishing moiré free level of detail.
The H6D-400c MS inherits all the features and functionality of Hasselblad's standard single shot cameras.
100MP CMOS Sensor
At the cameras heart lies Hasselblad's 53.4 x 40mm 100MP CMOS sensor, with its wide ISO range, 16-bit colour 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 customisation options including assigning favourite functions to touch buttons. With a resolution of 920K dots, the image display performance delivers clear, colour 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.
The H6D-400c MS builds on Hasselblad's 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-Shoot 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 colour 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 colour 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 colour 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 colour possibilities.
4-Shot Multi-Shoot 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 colour 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 colour 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-Shoot 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 colour data (GRGB- see 4 shot diagram below), 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.
