Hasselblad just announced it will launch its new H5D series of medium format cameras at the photokina show in Germany next week. The medium format camera system will include models with 40, 50 and 60 megapixel image sensors as well as 50 and 200 megapixel multi-shot versions.
According to a press release just issued by the Swedish-based company, the H5D system will feature “a modernized design” and “a new electronic engine.” The camera system will have larger, “more ergonomic buttons,” and new sealing for improved weather proofing.
There will also be a new H System lens: an HCD 4.8/24mm lens, which is equivalent to a 17mm lens on a full-frame 35-mm format DSLR.
A new Macro Converter for close-up photography will also be available, and the cameras will feature a RAW+JPEG image capture mode, and a new True Focus II autofocus system.
