Hasselblad has announced there new range. Medium format digital camera with a 37*49 mm sensor.
More info hasselblad


Obviously a bad move by Hasselblad. They should have implemented a APS sized sensor instead, since corner sharpness will obvioulsy be compromized.

– I couldn't resist I can't take credit for that joke, though. I read it on DPReview.com, regarding the topic of Nikon propaganda that APS sensors are the best way to go.

I just have to pay them a visit and have a look at it.

There must, by the way, be a reason why a larger CCD is better than a smaller one.

Why other ould Canon put a larger CCD in the 1D MK II than in 20D when they have the same amount of pixels ?

It's large format. So basically you have a bigger senso for a bigger image. The Canon is a SLR and the Haseelblad is medium format. You shouldn't compare them.

I know Hasselblad H2 is a medium format camera.

I was commenting ranplett regardning the sensor.
The point is that I see no reason why putting a small (APS-size) CCD in it.

Except that it is cheaper.

Hasselblad on the other hand, is not in the cheap segment anyway.

Yes, and it has to do with physics. Bob Atkins can explain better than I can.

Also, there is a practical reason why you would want a "full-frame" Canon DSLR. Any lens that is not EF-S is putting out an image circle that is designed for 24x36mm. If your sensor is smaller than that, you are not efficiently using the capabilites of the lens. (you're carrying extra weight, etc)

Everything I've heard about medium-format backs, by the way, says that they are better quality than the "full-frame" canon sensor but not thousands of dollars better. Considering that the 5D will cost only $3300, it's hard to justify a $10,000+ medium-format back.

Also, keep in mind that the Canon 1Ds puts out image quality that rivals medium-format film, and the gear is so much smaller and lighter. Anybody who works in the field is going to have to really think hard about that.

Here's a side-by-side comparison of 1Ds with 4x5 film and 4x5 digital back.

The short summary? They are very, very close in quality.

The next question, I guess, is how close the 5D comes in quality to the 1Ds. I'm going to bet it's pretty close.

I work with medium format film, (6x6 cm) , but I havent published any to istock. I'd need a bloody expensive film scanner ( realms of 500+, the cheaper one, you think they can, but they're not really stock ready on the consumer scanners at higher than 3 megapixels ). Or to goto a lab and have it professionally scanned to tiffs.

Sorry for the confusion! It's a joke based on Nikon propaganda that 1.5x (APS) sensors are actually better then larger 35mm format sensors. Using smaller sensors brings us closer to point and shoot quality.

Who is comparing Hasselblad and EOS 1D MKII ?

1: I was comparing EOS 20D and EOS 1D MKII since they booth are 8 Mpixel

2: That is exactly my point.
Why should they go down in CCD-size to APS-C, as was suggested.

Have I made my self clear?!

It was a joke!! I explained above.

Evilclown, the Hassy vs. 1d2 concept is strange, I can't imagine anyone ever making such a comparison.
