A Look at the Hasselblad H6D

Late last week Hasselblad announced a new generation of its medium format cameras with an entire range of improvements including higher resolution sensors (up to 100 megapixels), 4K video in RAW, touch screen and more.

In order to remain competitive in the ever improving photography market medium format cameras can’t relay only on their huge sensor size and high resolution – they need more – and Hasselblad believe that the new H6D brings more – more dynamic range (up to 15 stops), more control with the new touch interface and USB-3 type c connectivity plus built in WIFI as well as the first of its kind (for a non dedicated video camera) 4K RAW video capability.
