by JamesNYCJuly 23. 2014 08:00

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.

The check list:

  • CMOS sensor with the same performance level as the H5D-50c (perfect colours in any light).
  • Long exposures with clean, noise-free images.
  • Classic design (similar to the old film magazine).
  • Simple operation with no need for external cables (the CFV is the only digital back to offer this for V cameras).
  • Allows for use of PM90 and PME90 90º viewfinders.
  • Live Video in Phocus in colour.
  • New larger LCD screen with higher resolution.
  • Remote control option from Phocus.
  • Classic Hasselblad square crop option.
  • Modernised user interface
