New-For-Fall D-SLRs Reimagined
In the lead-up to the huge Photokina 2008 trade show, there were a number of big new camera announcements—more megapixels and better image quality, and in the spirit of convergence, HD video makes the leap to still cameras!
Tilt/Shift Adapter. Add the optional HTS 1.5 tilt/shift adapter, and you can shift the 28mm through 80mm lenses +/- 18mm or tilt them +/- 10 degrees. You can remove the digital-capture unit from the H3DII-50 (via optional H adapter) and attach it to a view camera for full tilt/shift flexibility.

The H3DII-50 is the top-of-the-line model in Hasselblad’s medium-format D-SLR family, featuring a 50-megapixel “full-frame” (36x48mm) CCD that’s twice the size of a 35mm-based, full-frame D-SLR sensor. It joins the H3DII-39 and H3DII-31 (39 and 31 megapixels, respectively) in Hasselblad’s digital-only (can’t use film backs) camera line.
