News: Hasselblad 503CWD - digital SLR

| | Comments (2)

503CWD.jpgHasselblad has announced the 503CWD - a digital back for the Hasselblad 500 and 200 series. Quite exciting:

  • 16 megapixels (4080x4080)
  • 36.7mm x 36.7mm sensor (1.5x crop factor compared to 6x6 film)
  • ISO 50, 100, 200, 400
  • CF card I or II
  • Battery: Sony InfoLithium L-NP-F
  • 2.2" OLED rear display

The only problem -- the price... estimated at around $10,000 (with 503CW body).

The back itself is around $8000 (according to rumor). It'll be compatible with all 500 bodies as well as 200 bodies with C lenses. To use 200 series bodies in the focal plane shutter mode with F/CFE lenses, you'll have to have a small modification made to the body.

Isn't $10k, a bit low for Hasselblad?

I SO want one :)
