You don't always need to switch the lights on.

Naturally we all want to be seen in the best possible light and now it’s possible to really shine in some of the worst. The brand new and superbly engineered Hasselblad H5D-50c is the world’s first integrated 50MP medium format camera to use CMOS sensor technology. Lower noise levels makes it possible to shoot at much higher ISO values – so even in poor light you’ll be guaranteed matchless crisp, clean images with perfect colour detail.

There is nothing dull about low light with the new H5D-50c

Low light situations offer some of the most beautiful and creative light and with the H5D-50c, this camera is the embodiment of capture versatility. 


High ISO performance

Due to the lower noise levels in the H5D-50c, you will be able to shoot at higher ISO values up to ISO 6400 and achieve incredible image clarity with perfect colours in any light.

Longer shutter speeds

The low noise levels from the H5D-50c will also enable longer shutter speeds of 12 minutes with an exposure time range as fast as 1/800s. 

Faster capture rate

With a faster capture rate of 1.5 frames per second, you can keep on shooting without missing an opportunity.

14 f-stops dynamic range 

Now there’s a higher dynamic range too. The new H5D-50c camera copes with even the highest contrast shooting scenarios thanks to its increased dynamic range of 14 f-stops. This will ensure extremely good detail and tonality in shadows and highlight areas.

Faster Live Video

With the faster read-out times of the CMOS, the H5D-50c will also enable you a faster Live Video function in Phocus and Phocus Mobile. The frame rate is set to 10-15 frames per second and you can benefit from the Live Video in colour.
