Hasselblad CF-39 MS Multi-shot 39 Megapixels Digital Camera Back with H2 Camera Body, Viewfinder and 80 mm Lens Kit


About Hasselblad

Hasselblad CF-39 MS Multi-shot 39 Mpix digital camera back with H2 Kit (H2 Body, 80 mm Lens and Viewfinder).

The CF-39 MS backs provide 39 megapixels digital capture with i-Adapter, Hasselblad's interchangeable camera interface, and true color multi-shot capture. The CF-39 MS line matches the functionality of the Hasselblad H2 camera perfectly, giving you access to the H System's range of high performance, central shutter lenses, and extended digital features such as digital APO Correction technology and Instant Approval Architecture.br>
The CF-39 MS line uses a 39 megapixel sensor. This sensor holds more and larger pixels, which guarantees superior image quality and provides moire free color rendering without gradation break-ups in even the finest lit surfaces.

The CF-39 MS backs capture an extended set of metadata and then perform an automated correction for color aberration effects with every shot. This feature is referred to as "digital APO correction" (DAC)

Working with the new Hasselblad RGB color profile enables you to produce outstanding and reliable out-of-the-box colors

The new Hasselblad raw file format, 3F RAW (3FR), helps implement this unique color system. The new 3F RAW file format is designed to ensure that images captured on Hasselblad digital products are quickly, effectively and safely stored on the available media (CF card, Imagebank, etc).

The Hasselblad CF-39 models can be attached to most of the professional SLR and View Cameras of the market with a simple 4-screw attached plate.

Hasselblad has created Instant Approval Architecture (IAA), an enhanced set of feedback tools, designed to liberate the photographer to focus on the shoot rather than the selection process. All CF-39 MS backs are perfectly integrated with the IAA architecture.

FlexColor offers an image processing workflow with the highest degree of control for the studio photographer. The newest FlexColor version allows the photographer to manipulate color temperature and compare image details across multiple images for precise image selection.

Optimum portability and image storage are critical for the professional photographer. The CF-39 MS backs enable you to choose between portable CF card storage, the flexible Firewire drive, or tethered operation with extended, special capture controls. With these three operating and storage options, the photographer is able to select a mode to suit the nature of the work at hand, whether in the studio or on location.
