Hasselblad Introduces The Hasselhoff Of Cameras

Along with looking very stylish and bigger than other rival products, Hasselblad’s latest digital SLR camera is looking to win the competition with a photo finish.

The Hasselblad H3DII-50 is a new DSLR camera that has not 10, not 12, but 50 megapixels. The mammoth of a camera uses Kodak’s 50 megapixel 36x48mm CCD sensor, which is twice the size of most DSLR sensors. Since its anything but small, the camera can capture 65 MB files, giving you a bigger and more detailed picture.

Other features include:

- Integrated 50 Mpix capture units with 3” display.

- Ultra-Focus: integral optimization of digital lens performance.

- Hasselblad Natural Colour Solution.

- Integrated CCD cooling sink for lower noise.

- Direct ISO/WB control.

- Thumbwheel control of digital menus.

- GPS accessory option.

But despite its wide array of features, there are two cons to the H3DII-50. Since it can capture 65 MB files, it doesn’t leave you a lot of space to take numerous pictures. On a 2 GB memory card, you’ll probably get about 30 frames. The retail price might be a major flaw as well. Even though the price and release date aren’t set yet, don’t expect the camera to be cheap as the previous model, the H3DII-39, cost almost US $40,000.

sigh

I wish I could have a pro camera but then again I would probably not be as good as the pro ever anyway. Zoom?
