Hasselblad has announced world’s first CMOS medium format camera – the H5D-50c which incorporates a 50MP CMOS sensor. This is a significant step away from the CCD sensors that have been standard in digital medium-format imaging up to now and potentially opens up the possibility of higher ISO sensitivities and faster capture rates than previous Hasselblad medium-format bodies. According Hasselblad’s press release, this H5D-50c will be released in coming months.
PhotoPlus Expo will be on October 24 to 26. At this Expo, both Nikon and Sony will show their Medium Format and Large Format cameras.
The rumored 44.7 MP Canon EOS-1 series camera is in heavy testing these days. This 44.7 MP camera has the ability of shooting 4K videos, but its eating batteries very fast. And Canon is still working on this camera for sensor, batteries and software. We will probably see a development announcement in late 2013 to early 2014.
With revenue drop on Compacts market, recent rumors said Canon is looking into Medium Format DSLRs for growth.
