Hasselblad has released a new version of their high-end medium format digital camera.
The “MS” in the name stands for Multi Shot. The camera is capable of taking up to 6 captures of a still subject (i.e. product shots or food photography) to create the high resolution images, but it can also take single captures of live subjects at 50 megapixels.
All these pixels come at a price though. The camera is expected to retail for €32,000 – or about R320,000. That’s only R0.0016 per pixel though, compared to R0.0010 per pixel for a Canon EOS 5D Mark II. That doesn’t seem too bad?
Jokes aside, it’s one of those cameras that most photographers will never even touch, never-mind own. All we can do is stare and drool. Here’s some promotional shots taken with its monstrous sensor (click on the images to go to the large preview on the official site):
