Hasselblad Says It Will Launch Medium Format Camera with CMOS Sensor in March

Hasselblad_logoHasselblad announced this morning it will launch a new digital medium format camera that will use a CMOS sensor. The new camera, to be called the H5D-50c, will go on sale in March.

Hasselblad is claiming the forthcoming H5D-50c will be “the world’s first 50MP medium format camera using CMOS sensor technology.”

The benefits of using a CMOS sensor in a medium format camera system include “a faster capture rate; longer shutter speed capability and much greater ISO performance,” according to Hasselblad product manager Ove Bengston. (Medium format cameras typically use CCD image sensors.)

More information, including pricing, for the H5D-50c will be announced in March 2014, Hasselblad said.
