Hasselblad has completely unveiled its new H5D-50c Medium Format CMOS Camera. Notably, Hasselblad is keeping the price point the same as its CCD-based H5D-50 camera, but that’s still well into the 5-figure territory. [click to continue…]


PhaseOne IQ250

Earlier this week, Hasselblad laid claim to the world’s first medium format camera. The problem is, however, Hasselblad had no camera to show off and only announced the official launch would happen in March 2014.

Now, PhaseOne is showing off its new IQ250 with a 50MP CMOS sensor – and PhaseOne actually has working cameras to show the world. [click to continue…]


Hasselblad H5D-50 Medium Format Camera

Hasselblad is taking a break from its recent nonsenical camera releases to launch a serious camera – the H5D-50c with a 50MP medium format CMOS sensor inside.

The CMOS sensor will allow for a faster capture rate, longer shutter speeds and a “much greater ISO performance,” according to Hasselblad Product Manager Ove Bengtson.

The Hasselblad H5D-50c will be available in March. Further details and pricing info will be available just prior to launch. The current, CCD-based H5D-50 runs for $26,995, so expect the CMOS version to get a moderate price hike.

Canon 8-inch Telescope Sensor

Last year, Canon showed off an 8-inch CMOS sensor, which was roughly 40-times the size of the 5D Mark II sensor.  We were all summarily impressed; however, Canon has gone off and put this massive sensor into a telescope.

What’s more is that they are recording video at 60fps using this massive sensor, which works swimmingly well in the low-light scenes of space. (I think everyone’s wishlist for the 5D Mark III just went up a couple levels of intensity.)

For all of the amazing details, the below press release is a must read. [click to continue…]
