Update 1: there has been a suprising amount of interest running 6:1 in favor, and against a few "no interest" emails. At least for me and the scope of my knowledge, the H6D-100C establishes a high-end “what is possible” context, which will lend perspective to what’s coming in other areas.
Update 2: the Hassy system is on the way with the 50/3.5 II and the 120/4 II. It will arrive in a few days and I will be shooting it in the mountains shortly thereafter. Coverage will go into Medium Format.
I am able to obtain on loan courtesy of Hasselblad the 100-megapixel Hasselblad H6D-100C (about $33000) plus the Hasselblad HC 50mm f/3.5 II and the Hasselblad HC Macro 120mm f/4 II which I selected as desirable lenses for evaluation, having excellent MTF.
The main issue is the sheer cost of the system—I need it on my business insurance since I could not tolerate a loss of a fraction of its cost, so I am waiting for a quote on what it would cost to cover the system for 2 weeks. If it can be worked out, I’ll be shooting it in mid-November.
Contact me about your interest in this camera. I’m personally interested in seeing what 100 megapixels and 15 stops of dynamic range on an enormous 53.4 x 40 mm sensor can do, as well as what I can accomplish with focus stacking. Plus some 60 minute long exposures might be interesting.
