#MediumFormatMonday It all starts with the sensor. The CMOS sensors built inside Hasselblad medium format cameras deliver the best in image quality, resolution, and detail capture possible. More importantly, it’s the size of the pixels that makes the biggest difference in image quality.
Hasselblad’s 50MP CMOS sensor delivers a pixel size of 5.3 microns; a similar resolution DSLR would have a pixel size of around 4.14 microns, giving the Hasselblad a 64% increase in light gathering power.
With greater light gathering power, finer and more detailed tonal information can be produced, delivering more information in the final file.
Essentially, this gives a photographer more choice and creative freedom in post-production and retouching.

The spaceport is a high-tech facility surrounded by the Amazonian forest which creates a thrilling, surrealistic setting with its blend of a lush environment, the surface of Earth, and space exploration and its technologies.
Superior image quality and detail, from the deepest shadows to the brightest highlights, Hasselblad H6D-100C. Its large sensor offers an almost full field-of-view from our HC & HCD wide angle lenses and records breathtaking detail, even in poor lighting conditions.
