Hasselblad’s New H5D-200c MS Resolves Images at a Mind Boggling 200MP

Hasselblad H5D-200c MS

Hasselblad has of a doozy of a medium format camera for you today. Starting off with the 50MP CMOS sensor the Hasselblad H5D-200c MC takes images at an astounding 6200 x 8272 resolution. What makes the sensor even more amazing is the H5D-200c MC can shoot in 4 and 6 consecutive shots, the latter of which it can stitch together into absurdly detailed 200MP pictures.

Dear lord.

The files are a product of Hassy’s proprietary Multi-Shot technology and each comes as a hard-drive crushing 600MB, 8-bit TIFF file. But this isn’t just about numbers. The combined images also help the camera resolve tiny, tiny details like leather grain or the intricate patterns of mesh into sharp clarity. A lower megapixel sensor taking the same image would lose all the details in a muddy mess.

The H5D-200c can also shoot up to 6400 ISO and take exposures as long as 12 minutes long for photographing star trails among other things. On the back the camera also sports a disappointingly low-resolution 460 x 320, 3-inch TFT type display. Hit the jump to the glorious detail 200MP can resolve, you’ll want to zoom-and-enhance for this one we promise.
