Versatility comes to the fore again from Hasselblad by offering a camera body that is fully compatible with all H System Lenses, including the HCD 4,8/24, HCD 4/28 and the HCD 4,0-5,6/35-90 lenses. It can also use a film magazine and offers H5X functionality with 3rd party digital backs.
Although aimed primarily at current H1, H2, H2F, H4X and H5X users, the H6X can naturally act as a backup for H5D users too.
The H6X lens program is designed and engineered by Hasselblad to meet the highest optical performance specifications. HC and HCD Lenses cover a wide spectrum of focal lengths and feature some of the fastest and most precise auto-focus capabilities on the market. The unique HCD 24mm wide-angle lens, the HCD 28mm and the HCD 35-90mm zoom lens have been tailored for digital use with a 37 × 49mm sensor, but can of course also be used with larger sensors with a minimal drop in performance in the extreme corners. The integral lens shutters allow for flash sync up to 1/800 of a second. The lens shutter also provides silent and vibration-free operation.
The viewfinder is the most important interface between the photographer and the subject. The large and bright viewfinder of the H6X camera shows the image crisply and clearly, letting you work even in dim lighting with perfect results. The HV 90X-II viewfinder covers the full area of the HC Lens line and offers near 100% image view and eyesight dioptre correction. The large eyepiece also allows full image view even when wearing glasses. The HVD 90X has been optimised for digital work with the digital sensor size of 37 × 49mm. The HVM, a waist-level viewfinder, is available as an accessory.
The H6X is designed to provide the same extensive functionality as the H1 and H2 cameras. It provides a number of functions such as:
True Focus helps solve one of the most lingering challenges that faces serious photographers today: true, accurate focusing throughout the image field. Without multi-point autofocus, a typical autofocus camera can only correctly measure focus on a subject that is in the centre of the image. When a photographer wants to focus on a subject outside the centre area, they have to lock focus on the subject and then re-compose the image. In short distances especially, this re-composing causes focus error, as the plane of focus sharpness follows the camera’s movement, perpendicular to the axis of the lens.
