New Hasselblad H5D 200c with Sony sensor takes 200 megapixel pictures and $50,000 from your bank account :)

Share

No guys, Megapixel madness will never be over. Hasselblad just announced a new H5D 200c camera which is an improved version of the H5D 200ms which sells for $44,000 at BHphoto (Click here…if you are rich). The camera uses the Sony 50MP medium format sensor and has a unique feature which allows to take 200 megapixel pictures! This is how it works according to Hasselblad:

The H5D-200c MS camera uses a 50Mpix CMOS sensor mounted onto the Hasselblad patented symmetrical multi-shot frame, which accurately positions the sensor with a sub-micron accuracy using piezo-electrical actuators. It can capture 6 shots with the sensor positioned accurately at a sequence of quadrants of the pixel and takes color information from the Bayer-patterned pixels to create a 200Mpix capture. This results in a leap in resolution that has to be seen to fully appreciate the tremendous difference it makes. Be prepared to be impressed beyond your expectations.
The sensor moves 1 and 1/2 pixel at the time, to create a 50 or 200 megapixel capture. Here is an image that shows the difference between the different shooting modes (Click on image to enlarge):
The full technical info can be read at Hasselblad site.
Hey Sony, just for fun, why don’t make a 20-shooting mode to give us 1 million megapixel images? 🙂

(SR5) More images of the strange selfie-camera with Sonys curved sensor (and specs confirmed).

Share

Here are more images of the Sony KW1 selfie camera which is the first camera using Sony’s new curved sensor tech!

This is also interesting for us because Sony stated they have developed a Full Frame curved sensor too. And that new Kw1 proves that kind of sensor is 100% ready for production. Let’s see that damn RX1s soon! 🙂

UPDATE: Now officially listed at Sony China.

(SR5) Sony will launch a new ILCE-QX1 camera!

Share

I got this news weeks ago and now we got a proof via the Russian agency Novocert (Thanks Photorumors for spotting this). Sony will launch a new QX E-mount camera. it will be called ILCE-QX1. It’s basically a sensor and mount module that let’s you fit E-mount lenses on your smart phone or tablet!

I really don’t know if there is a market for this 🙂

P.S.: Photorumors also confirmed the rumor we posted last week. There will be a new 35mm G lens and a 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G (article here).

(SR4) Samyang 50mm f/1.2 Cine lens (A and E-mount) to be announced on August 26.

Share

It’s really lens rumor time at Photokina! Samyang will launch a new 50mm f/1.2 VDSLR (Cine) lens on August 26. And as usual with their Cine lenses we expect to get both A and E-mount versions of it. There is no info about the price yet but current VDSLR lenses are very cheap and of extreme good optical quality. A full list of these A and E mount Cine lenses can be seen at BHphoto (Click here).
