Hasselblad Launches the New H4D-200MS
23/05/2011 Hasselblad’s latest multi-shot camera, which delivers unprecedented 200 megapixel files, is currently shipping. Upgrades for H4D-50MS cameras are also available.
After careful testing for stability and color accuracy, the H4D-200MS - first announced at Photokina last September - is now available. Based on the H4D-50MS platform, the new camera is capable of creating 200 megapixel files for the ultimate in resolution.
Since the year 2000, Hasselblad has continuously developed its multi-shot technology. In 2008, the company announced the first integrated multi-shot camera - the H3DII-39MS - which was followed more recently by the H4D-50MS. As a further development of the H4D-50MS technology, the H4D-200MS utilizes Hasselblad’s patented piezo frame module, which now captures 6 shots and combines them into an astounding 200 megapixel file.
There are times when you want to get extremely close or extremely large. Times when you want the absolute highest detail possible and even the largest standard resolutions do not do the job. And that’s where the Hasselblad H4D-200MS comes in.
Designed for studio photographers whose work requires the ultimate in resolution, extremely fine details and exact color information, the H4D-200MS is ideal for capturing images of stationary items such as cars, jewelry, artwork and other high end products where there is no room for compromise in image quality. The H4D-200MS is not just a single use specialty camera.
The H4D-200MS includes all the functionality of the H4D-50 and H4D-50MS – True Focus, Ultra Focus, digital lens Correction plus a range of top of the line features that make the H4D such an outstanding camera system – and provides three distinct capture modes in one ultimate photographic package:
- Normal single-shot capture for 50Mpix resolution images of live subjects
- Four-shot, 50Mpix Multi-Shot capture for high detail images of still subjects
- Six-shot, 200Mpix Multi-Shot capture for the ultimate in still subject capture

The H4D-200MS is available now for 32.000 Euro (plus tax). H4D-50MS owners have the option of upgrading their systems for 7.000 Euro (plus tax) by sending the camera to the factory in Copenhagen, Denmark. While the camera is being converted, the service team will make sure that the firmware and hardware is updated to ensure that the piezo modules’ strict tolerances, which are necessary for precise multi-shot capture, are met.
