Hasselblad announced an updated multi-shot camera based on its flagship 100c 100-megapixel, full-frame 645 CMOS sensor. The result: the Hasselbald H6D-400c MS. The 400c MS allows for a 400-megapixel image by shifting the sensor in one-pixel and half-pixel increments as it takes six shots that are then combined later for a true 400-megapixel file.
Of course, the multi-shot technology requires studio conditions and can really only be used for completely still subjects. But for genres such as product photography, the 400c MS should produce files incomparable with anything else currently on the market. The file size for each image: 2.4 GB at a resolution of 23200 x 17400.
Another four-shot mode of the camera allows for 100-megapixel captures with full-color information for each pixel (in a GRGB pattern) that the camera achieves by shifting the sensor in one-pixel increments for each shot. The result is a file that is 579 MB in size compared to the standard 16-bit 100 MP file size of roughly 200 MB per image. Needless to say, that's a lot more color data being captured each time.
Naturally, the 400c MS can also be used as a standard 100-megapixel daily shooter, in which case it acts just like its 100c counterpart.
The H6D-400c MS is available for pre-order now and will ship in March 2018 for $47,995. It will be available to rent for prices that range from $240 per day for rentals ten days or more to $475 per day for rentals three days or less.
