Now that the 200-megapixel H4D-200MS is finally available for purchase, it would be a good time to question the sanity of coughing up almost 50 Grand to own the latest in photo gadgetry. Still, technological progress costs and the new Hasselblad photo camera comes equipped with functions that will put those costs into perspective, as well as put the photo buff in the mood to spend.
The best-sounding feature by far of this latest H4D concerns an upgrade to the multiple-shots wizardry. Upped to a number of six shots per photo, this mode is engineered for the sole purpose of capturing still subjects/objects in great detail. This also means that your colors will be crisper once the camera snaps the image once, twice, etc. fast forward to six, times, for a total span of about half a minute. It will be worth the wait, though, as the lifelikeness of the resulting pic is supposed to blow your mind.
See more technical deets on the Hasselblad site here if you don’t mind the to-be-expected self-congratulatory tangents like “Hasselblad has always been motivated by a true passion for photography” and “Our tradition has always been one of innovation, advance, and unflagging dedication to quality.” Skim through for the gist of it, the camera’s highlights, and all that smugness will start making sense.
