The Hasselblad H5D-50 Medium Format DSLR Camera is the 50MP model of the new Hasselblad H system of medium format DSLR cameras. The H5D-50 model contains a 36.7 x 49.1 mm 50MP (6132 x 8176) CCD sensor. With its large light path, it creates high resolution images with great clarity and color rendering without gradation breaks. Hasselblad’s Natural Color Solution (HNCS) creates accurate colors, with natural skin tones and an ability to capture specific product colors and tones that are difficult to reproduce.
The Nikon D3S is a 12.1 megapixel professional-grade full frame (35mm) digital single-lens reflex camera (DSLR)
Full-Frame (36mm x 24mm) 12.1 megapixel sensor with ISO 200-12800 (ISO 100-102400 Boost) using reworked gapless microlenses
Pentax ZX-7 Film Camera
The camera is particularly compact, with a protruding rubberized grip for convenient holding.
This is a polycarbonate body, but the lens mount, film guide rails, and pressure plate are made of metal, giving Pentax an edge over some competitors. In order to reduce weight, size, and price, a penta mirror type viewfinder is used, instead of an all glass prism.
The level of detail and sharpness, the wide dynamic range and rich tonality in nearly any light is simply staggering—almost unimaginable until now. It features a 36.3MP FX-format CMOS sensor without an Optical Low Pass Filter for particularly sharp and detailed still imaging. With the addition of the EXPEED 4 Image Processor, performance speed is increased compared to the EXPEED 3 and noise is effectively reduced throughout the ISO range.
The D800E render levels of texture, nuance and detail that, until now, have been the exclusive domain of the complicated medium-format system.

GoPro HERO4 Black
With the ability to capture 4K at 30 fps (4K30), the camera allows you to move beyond HD when recording POV style footage either wearing the camera or mounting it in a number of creative ways. On top of 4K, the camera shoots 2.7K at up to 50 fps, Full HD (1080p) at up to 120 fps for high definition slow motion, WVGA (848 x 480) for upload-friendly files, and more. The HERO4 Black’s capabilities don’t end with video, though. It can take 12-megapixel stills as individual shots, in intervals for stitching together time-lapse movies, or in momentary bursts of up to 30 photos per second – the latter helping ensure you catch fast action at just the right moment.
The Hasselblad H5D is the latest update of a classic camera system, a subtle round of technological refinements to an already impressive design. Inside the controlled environment of a studio, the image quality of the Hasselblad lenses and bodies is well known.
Most of the refinements in the new Hasselblad range go to the speed and handling of camera operations, with a snappier feel to the system in use and faster processing of files during capture.
The improvements are incremental rather than revolutionary, changes that don’t translate into higher frame rates or more pixels, just more productive operation on the job and more confidence with focus.
The main selling point of any medium format camera is the amazing image quality. The H5D improves upon its predecessor with better weatherproofing and autofocus. A medium format sized sensor gives you an entirely different depth of field control and feeling to a photo. Portraits are much more flattering from a medium format camera.
When working with fine detail captures, the True Focus II system is one of Hasselblad’s most significant features – and has been updated to give better response and a confirmation signal to the photographer. True Focus works by sensing movement in five directions and calculating very subtle adjustments to the autofocus, thereby keeping your target correctly in focus as you recompose a shot.
History of Hasselblad
- 1841 Hasselblad family business begins.
- 1888 Hasselblad becomes Swedish distributor of Kodak Eastman products.
- 1933 Dragon Rapide was first designed by De Havilland
- 1953 Hasselblad 1000F was released
- 1957 Hasselblad 500C released (first of the V-system models)
- 1976 Hasselblad sold to an investment company

Perhaps the most famous use of the Hasselblad camera was during the Apollo program missions when man first landed on the Moon. Almost all of the still photographs taken during these missions used modified Hasselblad cameras.
Hasselblad cameras have played an integral part in the Space program, capturing the images that help us to understand our world and its surroundings. There are a range of special modifications and improvements required to meet the stringent demands of space travel. We then apply the knowledge and expertise we gain in space and bring it back to earth, further improving the Hasselblad line. All to ensure that we continue to provide the finest photographic equipment on – or off – the planet. Read more

AF-S NIKKOR 16-35mm f/4G ED VR
As the world’s sharpest ultrawide zoom, it’s the best Nikon wide-angle lens ever for most shooting.
For subjects that hold still, shooting this 16-35mm at f/4 with VR hand-held gives much sharper images than shooting a faster lens at a wider aperture, because more is in focus at f/4 than at f/2.8 or f/1.4.
