Wow. Just Wow. The Tech News Net announces that “Hasselblad Introduces its New 39 Megapixel H2D-39 Digital Camera”. You read it right. Thirty-nine Megapixels. That’s huge.
The camera’s CCD sensor is more than twice the size of conventional 35mm camera sensors (36.7 x 49.0 mm). At maximum resolution, the images captured by the H2D-39 in Hasselblad’s proprietary 3F RAW format are 78MB large (50MB with lossless compression).
The new camera is the equivalent of a medium format (2 1/4). The full press release can be found on the Hasselblad site.
