High-end DSLR with 50 Megapixel sensor
Currently the popular resolutions of digital single-lens reflex cameras are between 4 and 14 Megapixel. The latest model of the high-end producer Hasselblad makes them go green with envy.
The new H3DII-50 has a sensor - developed by Kodak - installed that gets up to fabulous 50 Megapixel. With it dimensions of 36 x 48 millimeters it is twice the size of sensors currently used in middle-class DSLRs.
But the huge sizes also has the drawback that the H3DII-50 needs about 1.1 seconds to take a picture and that cuts out the possibility to take pictures in fast sequences.
Hasselblad didn't reveal any prices up to now. But at the launch in October we will now if the camera is as expansive as a good second hand car.
