the ultimate camera?

Hasselblad H3D-39... (39 megapixels, if set to it, that is)

Big version: Width: 480 Height: 360 File size: 24kb


(a bit bulky, i agree, and the price... hmmm)

For what type of photography? I bet it's super for huge and crisp files of still objects. Think Chris H can answer that...

Seems ultimate though.  Silly

A very serious camera, seen it amd messed with it at a show once, and with a price tag to match  wideeyed 

Take care

DSLR's will be at 39mpix in a minute  Smile so definitely an awesome cam, but not ultimate.

I think for a price tag of 30,000+$ it is pretty versatile in its settings...

Blad is trying hard to get into the digital market, but Phase One digital backs seem to be the industry prime with Blad and Leaf fighting for second place.

For those of us used to lugging MF cameras around this isn't bulky at all. Even with a good quality pro digital camera in my bag, I still like pulling out my 645 and shooting on real film!

There is no such thing as an "ultimate camera" in the near future. Calm down, this is a thing called "progress". Not working forever but the end is *not* near.

Max. ISO: 400
Max shots per Minute: 35
Shutter timings: 32 - 1/800 s

Landscape, portrait, fashion, etc.: yes or even YES! But definitely a Churchill cam: "no sports".

Ciao, Walter

Pretty sure tons of SS'ers would disagree with you. There's more than sports action.

You kidding? That's the noisiest camera ever!

Nah, just a joke. The H3D makes the crispiest photos I've seen in the DB (take a look at Chris's newest shots!) and they've got the least amount of noise I've ever seen for night shots. Well done, Chris! Hope to see more...

Cheerio,
Dave
