Medium format cameras are trending, once again. After a first launch from Hasselblad followed by a swift reply from Fujifilm at Photokina this year, the first is back with a more tempting offer: 4K, RAW recording on a medium format cam a.k.a Hasselblad H6D-100C #fotomagic
In April, the news was that the camera would have to use the company’s HC line of lenses, which are great for auto-focus…. but not much else. Now, Hasselblad is reconsidering its strategy. They’ve partenered up with ALPA from Switzerland to create a lens plate capable of supporting Hasselblad F, but also Pentax 645, Mamiya 645, and Contax 645.
Plus, you can set up the camera to handle large format bellows lenses. Now, the price for the 4K medium format shooter isn’t a reason to jump up and down since a $30k sum is hard to spend on a gadget. As a matter of fact, we can see it used only in special, high-street projects in the world of advertising, for example.
The rest of us we’ll have to wait for a more affordable version in the year to come.
