In addition to the new H5D-50c medium format CMOS camera, Hasselblad has unveiled the H5D-200c, which delivers 200MP images.
The camera is based on the H5D-50c, using the same 50MP sensor. It produces higher resolution images by using a multi-shot design. The camera will capture 1, 4 or 6-shots. At the max resolution, it produces 8-bit TIFF files at 600MB each.
Hasselblad explains the multishot process as follows:
The advanced Hasselblad Multishot (4-shot and 6-shot) technology eliminates the issues that the single-shot interpolation routine can sometimes introduce, such as moiré and color rendering issues, by physically moving the sensor 1 pixel at a time, thereby capturing the red, green and blue information in each individual pixel point and then combining these captures into one. This results in a true color and moiré free capture with increased level of detail as there is no need for interpolation at all.

No word yet on US pricing; however, it has received a retail price of £29,895 in the UK, which converts to roughly $48k USD. There is an existing CCD version of the same camera – the H5D-200MS, which uses a 50MP CCD sensor. It retails for $44,000 in the US. So expect the H5D-200c MS to be in the same price range.
