Hasselblad’s 200-Mpixel Camera is Now a Reality

Posted on: 1 June 2011

Megapixel junkies can find their next fix in Hasselblad’s latest medium-format creation, the H4D-200MS. The camera boasts an amazing 200-Mpixel resolution, and was announced at Photokina last year. To put that in perspective, most professional DSLRS hover in the 20-Mpixel range. Hasselblad’s newest camera is about 10 times greater than that.

 

Medium-format, for those who don’t know, refers to a format of film photography larger than the standard 24mm by 36mm, known as 35mm, but smaller than the 4- by 5-inch format, known as large format. Digitally, the sensor is larger than a 35mm sensor; it could have dimensions of 33.1 by 44.2mm.

Hasselblad dominates the medium-format category, and it has been a popular option for decades since World War II. There are several models currently available in the H4D line: 31, 40, 50, 60, and now the 200. The H4D-200MS, specifically, comes as the third entry in a small line of multishot(MS) cameras: H3DII-39MS and H4D-50.
