HASSELBLAD H2 645 AF CAMERA BODY #13100
The H2 camera builds on the success of the Hasselblad H1 camera, providing new features that make digital high-end capture as easy as point-and-shoot. New features include integral supply of power to the new Hasselblad IXpress CFH digital back to enhance the easeof use and mobility of the system, additional metadata stored in the image file to make further image enhancement possible, and functions to support the "Instant-approval architecture" in the IXpress CFH digital back.
The H2 camera provides digital capture using sensors more than twice the physical size of today's 35mm sensors. These larger sensorshold more and larger pixels, which ensures the highest possible image quality and moire free color rendering without gradation break-ups - in even the most subtly lit surfaces and with low noise in shadow areas.
The large, bright viewfinder on the H2 camera gives you a crisp and clear view of your work, enabling you to work in even dim lighting with perfect results. In addition, the HV 90x viewfinder offers near 100% image view and diopter correction for vision problems. The large eyepiece also allows full image view even when wearing glasses. The grip LCD and the viewfinder LCD are of dot-matrix type
The H2 includes over 25 functions that can be custom-tailored by the user, providing easily programmed buttons that can be used as short-cuts to the camera's most used function.
The viewfinder also features a compact flash. While primarily intended to be used as a fill flash, it can also be used as main flashin certain cases. The flash has a metric guide number of 12, but when used as fill flash with -2 stops adjustment it is equal to guide number 24. With the SCA 3902 flash adapter, any flash compatible with the SCA3002 system can be used. The built-in flash metering system is designed to be used when working with manually controlled flashes, such as studio flashes.
The film back for the H2 camera features inserts than can handle both 120 and 220 film with automatic film type and ISO value setting when using Fuji bar coded film. Film wind-on and wind-off is also automatic with all films. In addition, the customizable data imprinting feature allows data, such as exposure parameters, to be printed along the film edge and outside of the image area. The imprint function can include a user selectable text string that will also be printed on the film. This text string is also addedto the image meta data when using Hasselblad IXpress CF or IXpress CFH digital backs.
The H2/CFH combination also provides you with Hasselblad's new Instant Approval Architecture, bringing automated image classification into your digital workflow from the split second of capture.
