Yesterday meets today and is ready for tomorrow.
Hasselblad has gone back to the future with its new CFV-50c digital back for V System photographers worldwide.
CFV 50C DATASHEET
The CFV-50c comes with a cutting edge CMOS sensor (just like its H5D-50c sibling) offering photographers outstanding performance at all ISO settings.
Now dedicated V System users – even those with cameras going back as far as 1957 – have access to the very latest imaging technology from the world’s leading medium format camera maker, but can still revere and cherish V System classic design and feel.
The CFV-50c celebrates almost sixty years of V System history but now offers users instant access to the revelations of today’s progressive imaging environment.
Photographers can now embrace the wealth and bandwidth of latest photo know-how and employ it with ease to fully exploit the potential for their older cameras. Breathtaking results from a world-beating digital back.
It’s Hasselblad genius at your fingertips.
