Hasselblad has announced a new 39 megapixel medium format digital camera, the H2D-39. This camera is based on the Hasselblad H2 body, and is compatible with the entire range of Hasselblad H System lenses as well as the Hasselblad V lens system.

The same functionality is being offered in a digital back format, designed to work with the Hasselblad H2 camera and others using the H-system interface plate. The digital backs include:

  • CF-39 – the basic 39 megapixel digital back
  • CF-39MS – multi-shot-capable version of the digital back, providing increased color resolution for studio shooting
  • CFH-39 – integrates with the H2’s power system, so both camera and digital back can be powered by the H2’s Li-ion battery

The new camera and backs will be rolled out worldwide in Q1 2006. Hasselblad offers an upgrade program for users wanting to step up to these new products from older versions.
