26Aug05 Hasselblad H2D press summary

Hasselblad H2D announcement clippings

The H2D uses an optical format much larger than 35mm, with a large format, high quality 22 Mpix CCD sensor measuring 37mm x 49mm.  Coupled with an ultra bright, extra large ‘H-size' viewfinder enabling better image composition, the final result is an image quality that exceeds normal expectations of medium format photography.

The H2D delivers improved mobility, quality, and workflow.  Brand new camera features include a highly advanced image approval and selection tool, called Instant Approval Architecture, providing a swift and easy way to select and classify images.

Optimum portability and image storage are critical for the professional photographer, but have historically been compromised in the digital medium format environment.  Hasselblad's new product now offers the choice of the portable CF card storage, the flexible FireWire drive, or the tethered operation with extended, special capture controls.  With these three operating and storage options, the photographer is able to select a mode to suit the nature of the work at hand, whether in the studio or on location.  

Hasselblad has partnered closely with Adobe to make its new products fully compatible with Adobe's raw image format DNG (‘Digital NeGative'), bringing this new technology standard to the professional photographer for the first time.  The DNG file format enables raw, compressed image files to be opened directly in Adobe Photoshop CS.
