  • Lower noise levels makes it possible to shoot at much higher ISO values - so even in poor light you'll be guaranteed matchless crisp, clean images with perfect colour detail
  • Low light situations offer some of the most beautiful and creative light and with the H5D-50c, this camera is the embodiment of capture versatility.
  • High ISO performance:
  • Due to the lower noise levels in the H5D-50c, you will be able to shoot at higher ISO values up to ISO 6400 and achieve incredible image clarity with perfect colours in any light
  • Longer shutter speeds:
  • The low noise levels from the H5D-50c will also enable longer shutter speeds of 12 minutes with an exposure time range as fast as 1/800s
  • Faster capture rate:
  • With a faster capture rate of 1.5 frames per second, you can keep on shooting without missing an opportunity
  • 14 f-stops dynamic range:
  • Now there's a higher dynamic range too
  • H5D-50c camera copes with even the highest contrast shooting scenarios thanks to its increased dynamic range of 14 f-stops
  • This will ensure extremely good detail and tonality in shadows and highlight areas
  • Faster Live Video:
  • With the faster read-out times of the CMOS, the H5D-50c will also enable you a faster Live Video function in Phocus and Phocus Mobile
  • The frame rate is set to 10-15 frames per second and you can benefit from the Live Video in colour
  • CMOS Sensor:
  • Features a CMOS sensor measuring 43.8 x 32.9mm - much larger than the largest 35mm DSLR sensors
  • The basic ISO rating is from ISO 100 to ISO 6400 and the high sensitivity of the sensor enables completely new application areas for all professional medium format photographer.
  • It is now totally possible to capture superb quality images even at high ISO settings making low light photography easy
  • This high sensitivity and fast capture speed together with the high dynamic range of 14 stops makes this a true all-round camera that can be used for almost any type of photography
  • The H5D-50c is built around a high speed architecture that can capture full resolution images at the rate of 1.5 captures per second, working either mobile or tethered to a computer
  • The combination of these features makes the H5D-50c the natural choice for the professional photographer wanting to work with the ultimate in image quality whether working in the studio with controlled lighting or on location
  • Medium Format digital capture advantage:
  • In digital photography, the advantages of medium format cameras have become even more obvious
  • The basic 6 x 4.5 cm design allows the H5D-50c to use one of the largest image sensors currently available in digital photography
  • Consequently the sensor holds more and larger pixels, which deliver the highest possible image quality in terms of moiré-free color rendering without gradation break-ups in even the finest lit surfaces
  • Choice of bright viewfinders:
  • One of the important traditional advantages of the medium format is the extra-large and bright viewfinder image, enabling extremely precise compositions and easy operation in dim lighting
  • The H5D-50c comes with the HVD 90x viewfinder designed for full performance over the large sensor
  • Hasselblad has added an interchangeable waist-level viewfinder, the HVM, for the entire range of H system cameras
  • The bright and large viewfinder image is ideal for creative composing and the photographer is able to shoot in the fashion that suits them most; maintaining eye contact with the model, or gaining impact by shooting from a point lower than eye-level, for example
  • Digital Lens Correction and Ultra-Focus for image perfection:
  • The H5D-50c camera allows information from the lens and exact capture conditions to be fed to the camera processor for ultra-finetuning of the auto-focus mechanism, taking into account the design specifications of the lens and the optical specifications of the sensor
  • In this way the full H System lens program is even further enhanced, bringing a new level of sharpness and resolution
  • Detailed information about capture condition is also stored in the image file
  • This information is then used by Phocus to perform "Digital Lens Correction" (DAC), which is an automatic correction of the images based on a combination of the various parameters concerning each specific lens for each specific shot, ensuring that each image represents the best that your equipment can produce
  • Digital Lens Correction is available regardless if Phocus or Adobe Photoshop Lightroom is used
  • Improved handling:
  • Many new features have been added to the H5D-50c to make using the camera even easier than before
  • This includes the option to use the grip controls to control settings and operation of the sensor unit
  • You can control zoom, browsing and menu selection without taking your hand off the grip
  • The Profile handling feature allows you to store complete camera settings in memory for easy access.=
  • Seven different camera set-ups can be stored and settings from both the body and sensor unit are stored in the profile and these profiles can easily be managed through Phocus software
  • Phocus for professional level workflow:
  • Phocus provides an advanced software toolbox that has been especially designed to easily achieve optimum workflow and absolute image perfection from Hasselblad raw image files
  • With the H5D-50c camera system Phocus provides:
  • Uncompromising Image Quality
  • Extended camera control with which to operate your H5D-50c
  • Features, such as live video for easier shot set-up and workflow, or the ability to control the lens drive for focusing or camera settings when the camera is in a remote position or when the digital capture unit is mounted on a view camera, bring an entirely new level of flexibility to the way you shoot
  • Moiré Removal Technology automatically applied directly on the raw data, leaving image quality intact and eliminating the need to carry out special masking selections or other manual procedures, saving hours of tedious post-production work
  • Flexible Workflow. The Phocus GUI features easy-to-use options
  • that allow you to customize your set-up to suit a range of
  • Electronic spirit level:
  • The H5D-50c has an integrated electronic spirit level to make it easy to produce a straight horizon
  • The spirit level is shown both in the viewfinder and on the rear LCD
  • You therefore don't need to take your eye from the viewfinder to check camera alignment
  • Camera info on rear LCD:
  • To improve visibility in certain situations, the rear LCD can now show a copy of the camera grip LCD where you see all relevant shooting information
  • Hasselblad's unique natural colors:
  • Hasselblad's Natural Color Solution (HNCS) enables you to produce outstanding and reliable out-of-the-box colors, with skin tones, specific product colors and other difficult tones reproduced easily and effectively
  • In order to incorporate our unique HNCS and DAC features we have developed a custom Hasselblad raw file format called 3F RAW (3FR)
  • This file format includes lossless image compression, which reduces the file size by 33%
  • The 3FR files can be opened directly in Apple or Adobe imaging environments
  • Two modes of operation and storage:
  • The H5D-50c offers a choice of storage devices: CF cards or a computer hard drive
  • With these operating and storage options, you are able to select a mode to suit the nature of the work in hand, whether in the studio or on location
  • True Focus and Absolute Position Lock:
  • True Focus helps solve one of the most lingering challenges that faces serious photographers today: true, accurate focusing throughout the image field
  • Without multi-point auto-focus a typical auto-focus camera can only correctly measure focus on a subject that is in the center of the image
  • When a photographer wants to focus on a subject outside the center area, they have to lock focus on the subject and then re-compose the image
  • In short distances especially, this re-composing causes focus error, as the plane of focus sharpness follows the camera's movement, perpendicular to
  • the axis of the lens
  • The traditional solution for most DSLR cameras has been to equip the camera with a multi-point AF sensor
  • These sensors allow the photographer to fix an off-center focus point on an off-centre subject, which is then focused correctly
  • Such multi-point AF solutions are often tedious and inflexible to work with
  • Due to the physics of an SLR-camera, the off-centre focus points that are offered are all clustered relatively close to the centre of the image
  • To set focus outside of this center area, the photographer is still forced to focus first, and then shift the camera to reframe, with the resulting loss of focus as a result
  • To overcome this problem, Hasselblad has used modern yaw rate sensor technology to measure angular velocity in an innovative way
  • The result is the new Absolute Position Lock (APL) processor, which forms the foundation of Hasselblad's True Focus feature
  • The APL processor accurately logs camera movement during any re-composing, then uses these exact measurements to calculate the necessary focus adjustment, and issues the proper commands to the lens's focus motor so it can compensate
  • The APL processor computes the advanced positional algorithms and carries out the required focus corrections at such rapid speed that no shutter lag occurs
  • The H5D-50c's firmware then further perfects the focus using the precise data retrieval system found on all H System lenses
