If that happens on a wafer with 80 chips you loose 1/80th your yield. A cropping back is not interesting to me and a FF would not be either, due to price. That is exactly how it gets 50mp handheld and 80mp tripod images. Flippy screens can be convenient, but they don’t tilt the controls for comfortable work when the camera is held at the waist level. “The CFV II 50C has a medium format 50-megapixel CMOS sensor (43.8 x 32.9 mm)” back. Well, most would say I'm old and more than a few would say I'm rich (low 7 figures) and I wonder -- is that an insult? This back as sweet as it is. Maybe you got some interesting expressions and also nice smiles of relief when they discovered it was just a camera. This new model though comes, I assume, with the benefits of the speed improvements in the X1D II 50C that make operation quicker, and that it will provide large JPEGs as well as general improved quality in JPEG files. And with the current addressable market that's bad. @shrpbokeh You seem to be ignoring the shapes that most people want for most images, who would require cropping almost every image taken with a square sensor: 5:4 to 3:2 and beyond is where most compositions are (outside of Instagram!). "Upscale" cameras have always existed. I still wonder though what Victor would have said if he still had been around about all these different turns in the companys history. One simply has to ask if they’d prefer the loss of the megapixels or the dollars. ここ2,3年、私がフィルムで撮る時のメインカメラになったのが、Hasselblad 503CX。HasselbladのVシステムのうちの一機種。1988年発売だから、当然記録媒体はフィルム。503CX本体の後部に装着するフィルムマガジン(代表的なのがA12マガジン)にブローニーフィルムを装填して撮影する。ところがである、この昔ながらのフィルムカメラを一瞬にして最新のデジタルカメラに大変身させる新しいすごいシステムがHasselbladから発売された。これは検討しない手はない。正確に言うと今までもあったが、今回のデジタル化のシステムはよりコストダウンされている。, "Our Legacy, Your Future"・Hasselblad 907Xを組み合わせると、最新のXCDレンズまでAFの使用が可能に・歴史的なVシステムボディに取り付けると、手になじむ感覚が懐かしくCFV II 50Cを使うならどちらがお好みでしょうか。#Hasselblad #HasselbladCFVII #CFVII pic.twitter.com/ToQY8tEaAw, 1940年代、ヴィクター・ハッセルブラッドがはじめて6cmx6cm判のカメラとして発売した1600F/1000Fシリーズは、フォーカルプレーン式のシャッター。, その後、ストロボとの同調を考慮したカメラのニーズに対応するために開発されたのが、レンズシャッター機のVシリーズ。レンズ交換が可能な500シリーズと、レンズがCarl Zeiss製の銘玉ビオゴンに固定されたシュープリーム・ワイドのSWシリーズ(超広角専用モデル)がある。, フィルムカメラの主流は一般的には135フィルムを使うけど、ハッセルブラッドのVシステムのカメラには120フィルム(ブローニーフィルム)を装填し、6x6のフィルムサイズで撮る。, ハッセルブラッドVシステムのカメラの最も特徴的な機能として、フィルムを収めるフィルムマガジンを、カメラ本体からワンタッチで外すことが出来ることにある。これは撮影の時非常に便利。, ニコンFシリーズ、キャノンEOSシリーズ、LeicaMシリーズなど135フィルムを使うカメラではこうはいかない。フィルムの格納部位が、脱着式になっていないので、一旦24枚撮りまたは36枚撮りのフィルムを装填してしまうと、普通はその枚数を撮り切るまでフィルムを途中ですぐに変更することが出来ない。, 私の場合、503CXを使用する時には、大抵ISO100かISO400のモノクロのブローニーフィルムを装填して風景を撮影することが多い。でも、野原に咲く綺麗な花や春先の桜、そしてカラフルな服装の素敵な女性のポートレートを撮りたいというような場合は、カラーフィルムで撮りたい。そんな時、予めカラーフィルムを装填してある予備のフィルムマガジンがカメラバックに入っていれば、フィルムマガジンをササッと付け替えれば、すぐにモノクロからカラーの撮影に切り替えられる。いくつかの撮影の場面を想定して、私の場合は503CXのカメラ本体と合わせてA12(12枚撮り)のフィルムマガジンを3個持ち歩き、それぞれに種類の異なるフィルムを装填していることが多い。, CFV II 50Cは、A12フィルムマガジンの部分だけデジタルの撮像素子と記憶装置にしたイメージだ。製品の一般名としてはデジタルバックという言い方になる。デザインも従来のA12マガジンと似たイメージ。だから従来のカメラ本体である503CXやその他の500シリーズのカメラ本体に装着しても違和感がないと思われる。, 私の場合は、もしCFV II 50Cを購入することが出来たら、真っ先にカラーのブローニーフィルムの代わりに使うと思う。その理由は;, アサヒカメラの’20年6月号で赤城耕一先生がCFV II 50Cをレポートされている。先生の解説によると、凡そ44x33ミリ。中途半端なサイズのように思えるが、そうな理由の一つは後述の価格を考慮してのことではないだろうか。135フィルムを使っていたニコンやキャノン一眼レフカメラがデジタル化された時、フルサイズ機とAPS-C機が出てきた。フルサイズ機の撮像素子(センサー)のサイズは、135フィルムの撮影1コマのサイズと同等。一方APS-Cという規格の場合、撮像素子のサイズが少し小さくなっている。, もし、ブローニーフィルムの中判(6X6)のサイズに合わせてフルサイズの撮像素子作ってCFV II 50Cに搭載したら、価格は恐ろしく高くなって、よっぽどのお金持ちでないと買えない製品になってしまうと思う。今回のCFV II 50Cは、いわば135フィルム由来のデジタル一眼レフカメラでいうところのAPS-C機のような存在だろう。, たとえフルサイズ相当の撮像素子ではなくても、往年の銘機であるハッセルブラッド500シリーズをワンタッチでデジタル化出来る意味はとても大きいと思う。現在、A12フィルムマガジンを使って撮っているわけだが、毎回バライタ紙に引き伸ばす作業が楽しくて仕方ない。とにかく、出来上がる写真が本当に美しいのだ。私が現在500シリーズ用に使って入るレンズは、, いずれも、発売当時は私のような素人のアマチュアが使えるようなものではなく、プロ御用達の高級レンズだった筈。デジタルの時代となり、価格が落ちてきたことでアマチュアの私でも使うことが出来る。私のようなフィルムカメラが好きなアマカメにとっては、ある意味よい時代になった。製造されてから20年、30年経ってはいるが、やはりそこはCarl Zeissの銘レンズたち。もう惚れ惚れする写り。, を使っている。コシナのレンズ以外は所謂昔の球面ズミルックスである。これらのレンズについては、マウントアダプターを介して、最新のミラーレスデジタル機であるSONY α7IIIに装着して、往年の銘レンズを通したデジタル画像を楽しむことが既に出来ている。, もし、CFV II 50Cを手にしたら、これと同じことが中判用のCarl Zeissの3種のレンズについても出来るようになるのだ。どの様な写りになるのか….これはもう考えただけでワクワクしてくる。, 上記のセンサーサイズからしてコストが抑えれているとはいえ、やっぱりまだ高い。新品だと80万円は確実に越えているようだ。一方、前述の通りフィルムの値段がどんどん上がっている。私の場合だと、毎月撮影に使っている120フィルムの本数や現像代などを考えると、仮にCFV II 50Cの中古品を税込みで80万円で買ったと想定して、フィルム消費本数+フィルムの現像代と比較した場合、2年位で十分に元がとれると思う。, デジタルの撮像素子は撮影時に高い精度を要求する。私は、A12フィルムマガジンを1台のHasselblad 50CXに対して3個用意して、撮影に出かけると2個または3個を撮影の状況などによって結構頻繁に付け替えることがある。よって、フィルムマガジンと503CX本体の勘合部が擦り減っていたりして、CFV II 50CをA12に代えて装着したとき、正しい精度が得られるのかちょっと心配である。そう思っていたら、やはりこの点をアサヒカメラ’20年6月号の記事の中で指摘されていた。やはり、CFV II 50Cのセンサー面の位置は高い精度が要求されるようだ。実際にCFV II 50CXを購入した場合は、合わせるVシリーズのカメラ本体をハッセルブラッド・ジャパンのカスタマーサービス等に送って、精度上問題ないか点検してもらった方がよいだろう。, CFV II 50Cに関して、Twitter上で赤城先生とちょっとキャッチボールさせてもらった時、クリーニングの大切さを強調されていた。Hasselblad 500シリーズまたはSWシリーズ本体のバックシャッター部やそこに貼られている反射防止用のバルパス部が汚れていると、作動時にCFV II 50Cのセンサーを汚してしまうリスクが非常に高いそうだ。, よって、バックシャッター周辺はしっかりと清掃を怠らないようにするべきとのことであった。, 今年、出来ればEOS R5, R6 またはEOS 5D MarkVのうち、いずれか一機種を購入したいと考えている。そして来年、CFV II 50Cか、Leica M10 Monochromeのうちいずれかを買いたいと考えている。当分、悩ましい時が続きそうだ。. Continue to watch the review by professional photographers if the cleaning issue has some difficult point for amateurs. People have made great art with less. wait, how this works with such short flange distance? The new Laowa 15mm F4.5 Shift lens lets you go wide with perspective control. 4:3 is closer to the middle of the range that many of us use for final compositions, so overall keeps cropping losses down. 907Xカメラボディと組み合わせると、すべてのXCDレンズでオートフォーカスと自動露出が利用可能になります。. As if the only film part of A12 film magazine is replaced into the advanced digital image sensor. Total overkill but fun like the 60's when we did use Hasselblad for events and receptions. Still prefer traditional wet process in case of monochrome photo. These are the two ways (stitch/shift) that I am aware of to create multi exposures. カメラ(フィルム&デジタル)、旅、台湾茶、ご近所グルメなんかを楽しみながら小さな京町家で暮らしています。. Combining a 37MP full-frame sensor, minimalist controls and Lightroom Mobile built in, it's a refreshing – if a bit quirky – take on the smartphone-meets-camera concept. D850 is gonna cost you big buck. The smaller the sensor, the more the cost is divided up. Best Smartphone Gimbal (DJI OM 4, Zhiyun Smooth XS, Moza Mini MX). They have already announced an External Optical Viewfinder for the 907X (sorta like the SWC's External Optical Viewfinder). Some would say they choose a Leica M for its ergonomic simplicity. There is an adaptor plate made by Kapture Group that allows you to use Hasselblad V mount digital back on Bronica ETRS / ETRSi, but I never seem one for SQ-A. You are right!! Senior Editor Barney Britton's Gear of the Year part two details how he ended up with a Reflex-Nikkor 1000mm F11, and despite its quirks, why it was ideal for a creative project in the COVID-era. Their sales are growing. The CFV II 50C celebrates Hasselblad's design-centric heritage with its timeless look featuring a similar form factor, leatherette cover and chrome edges as the original V System film magazines. The current ILC market is projected to shrink to at least half of today's size. The square image format will have instagrammers rushing to buy this camera LOL, absolutely - a square takes up the most space withing a circular field of view. Or rather, why is it relevant that Hassy doesn't make hair own sensor? Nothing says "still relevant" like imitating the design of your iconic product from half a century ago. Hasselblad has always had "upscale" cameras. Crazy. The cheap end for 56x56 would be well over $100k if not approaching a quarter million dollars (because as you get up over $100k you don't get a lot of sales so you need to basically get into military/government pricing because your don't have a large sales base to spread your R&D and other costs over). 21Mm f/4 and 30mm f/3.5 wide-angle lens, but there is no one making professional peel instant.
