As a mid-range choice, the H4D-40 is the medium format DSLR camera that suits the situations and aspirations of many professional photographers. It is the perfect choice for those who want to tailor their equipment to match assignment demand. It is hardly a compromise though compared to 35 mm cameras; beating them down on image quality by so much. It lists features such as True Focus with Absolute Position Lock that refine the auto-focus system for accurate composing at close range with shallow depth-of-field. Ultra Focus data and Digital Auto Correction in Phocus software also contribute to create the exceptional image detail and image resolution that Hasselblad is famous for. Added to that, the Hasselblad Natural Color Solution (HNCS)
enables you to produce outstanding and reliable out-of-the-box colors, with skin tones, specific product colors and other difficult tones reproduced easily and effectively. Features such as new low noise color filters on the sensor and the high performance HC/HCD lens line, provide the basis for increased clarity and increased depth of field. With its unique bright viewfinders, its wide range of stunning quality lenses and its wide choice of accessories, the H4D-40 is the obvious camera choice for the professional photographer who must deliver more than 35 mm quality while maintaining the ease of working with a DSLR.
Raising the bar from H3D
Expanding on the great feature set of the H3D camera-line, a set of new camera features are introduced with the H4D-40: new 3 TFT 24bit color display with large viewing angle new camera electronics delivering the basis for True Focus and ultra fast Auto Focus new True Focus auto-focus system with Absolute Position Lock and new camera controls new extended exposure time up to 4 min (256 sec.) exposure new AF assist light for working in dark environments new 90 MB/sec read-write performance on Extreme Pro cards from Sandisk
The H4D-40 camera system has been especially designed to meet demands for both flexibility and ultimate image quality. This includes: the freedom to choose between eye-level and waist-level viewfinders the choice of combining point-andshoot and tilt/shift to solve creative commercial challenges the ability to combine working tethered and un-tethered to get the most of your camera system both on location and in the studio the option of processing your raw images in Hasselblads Phocus imaging toolbox, or working with your raw images directly in Apple or Adobe imaging environments.
Medium Format digital capture advantage
In digital photography, the advantages of large format cameras have become even more obvious. The basic 64.5 cm design allows the H4D-40 to use one of the largest image sensors currently available in digital photography. The H4D-40 features CCD sensor measuring 32.9 43.8mm - almost twice the physical size of the largest 35mm DSLR sensors. Consequently the sensor holds more and larger pixels, which deliver the highest possible image quality in terms of moir-free color rendering without gradation break-ups in even the finest lit surfaces. Basic ISO rating is from ISO 100 to ISO 1600. The H4D-40 makes use of a new high speed capture architecture capturing full size, compressed 50Mbyte images at the rate of 1.1 seconds per capture, working either mobile or tethered to a computer. The combination of these features makes the H4D-40 the natural choice for the professional commercial photographer wanting to work with the highest image quality within a camera system that supports ultimate creative expression in order to deliver outstanding images to satisfy the most demanding customer.
A choice of bright viewfinders
One of the important traditional advantages of the medium format is the extra-large and bright viewfinder image, enabling extremely precise compositions and easy operation in dim lighting. The H4D-40 comes with the HVD 90x viewfinder designed for full performance over the large sensor. Hasselblad has added an interchangeable waist-level viewfinder, the HVM, for the entire range of H system cameras. The bright and large viewfinder image is ideal for creative composing and the photographer is able to shoot in the fashion that suits them most; maintaining eye contact with the model, or gaining impact by shooting from a point lower than eye-level, for example.
Hasselblads unique natural colors
Hasselblads Natural Color Solution (HNCS) enables you to produce outstanding and reliable out-of-the-box colors, with skin tones, specific product colors and other difficult tones reproduced easily and effectively. In order to incorporate our new unique HNCS and DACfeatures we have developed a custom Hasselblad raw file format called 3F RAW (3FR). This file format includes lossless image compression, which reduces the required storage space by 33%. The 3FR files can be converted into Adobes raw image format DNG (Digital Negative), bringing this new technology standard to the professional photographer for the first time.
An impressive lens line outperforming the Carl Zeiss icons
The highly renowned HC/HCD lens line includes 11 Auto-Focus lenses, all with central lens shutters. Range is from 28mm to 300mm, 50-110mm zoom, 35-90mm zoom and 1.7X converter. The built-in central lens shutter allows flash to be used at all shutter speeds down to 1/800s. It also improves image quality by reducing camera vibration. The HTS 1.5 tilt/shift adapter delivers an easy to use, portable tilt/ shift solution for 5 HC/HCD lenses ranging from 28mm to 100mm. The CF adapter allows use of the classic CF-lenses from the Hasselblad V-camera, with full use of their central shutters, allowing flash to be employed at shutter speeds down to 1/500s. And thanks to the large format of the H System cameras, there is a considerably shallower depth of field range, making it much easier to utilize selective focus to creative effect.

True Focus and Absolute Position Lock
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 auto-focus a typical autofocus camera can only correctly measure focus on a subject that is in the center of the image. When a photographer wants to focus on a subject outside the center 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 cameras movement, perpendicular to the axis of the lens. The traditional solution for most DSLR cameras has been to equip the camera with a multi-point AF sensor. These sensors allow the photographer to fix an off-center focus point on an off-center subject, which is then focused correctly. Such multi-point AF solutions are often tedious and inflexible to work with. Due to the physics of an SLR-camera, the off-center focus points that are offered are all clustered relatively close to the center of the image. To set focus outside of this center area, the photographer is still forced to focus first, and then shift the camera to reframe, with the resulting loss of focus as a result. To overcome this problem, Hasselblad has used modern yaw rate sensor technology to measure angular velocity in an innovative way. The result is the new Absolute Position Lock (APL) processor, which forms the foundation of Hasselblads True Focus feature.
The APL processor accurately logs camera movement during any re-composing, then uses these exact measurements to calculate the necessary focus adjustment, and issues the proper commands to the lenss focus motor so it can compensate. The APL processor computes the advanced positional algorithms and carries out the required focus corrections at such rapid speed that no shutter lag occurs. The H4Ds firmware then further perfects the focus using the precise data retrieval system found on all HC/HCD lenses.
The plane of focus changes when the camera is tilted for composition.
The middle image shows the result when not using True Focus. While this image looks relatively sharp, the rightmost image where True Focus has been used, is razor sharp.

Digital Lens Correction and Ultra-Focus for image perfection
The H4D-40 camera allows information from the lens and exact capture conditions to be fed to the camera processor for ultrafine-tuning of the auto-focus mechanism, taking into account the design specifications of the lens and the optical specifications of the sensor. In this way the full HC/HCD lens program is even further enhanced, bringing a new level of sharpness and resolution. Digital correction for color aberration and distortion is also added. Digital Lens Correction (DAC), is an automatic correction of the images based on a combination of the various parameters concerning each specific lens for each specific shot, ensuring that each image represents the best that your equipment can produce.
Accessories including GPS Recording Flexibility
Hasselblads Global Image Locator (GIL) is an accessory for use with any Hasselblad H-System digital capture product. With the GIL device, all images captured outdoors are tagged with GPS coordinates, time and altittude. This data provides the key to a number of future applications involving image archiving and retrieval. One example is the direct mapping of images in Phocus software to the Google Earth application. Check out full list of accessories at: http://www.hasselblad.com/products/lenses-and-accessories/ h-system-accessories.aspx

You can have multiple folders open simultaneously for side-by-side viewing, comparison, and selection
Instant Approval Architecture
Building on the success of the Audio Exposure Feedback technology, Hasselblad has created Instant Approval Architecture (IAA), an enhanced set of feedback tools, designed to enable the photographer to focus on the shoot rather than the selection process. IAA triggers audible and visual signals for each image captured, notifying the photographer immediately of its classification status. The information is recorded both in the file and in the file name, providing a quick and easy way to classify and select images, in the field or back at the studio. IAA is a Hasselblad trademark and Hasselblad has a patent pending on the invention.
The HTS tilt/shift adapter for H4D-40 allows for portable tilt/shift with the HC/HCD lens range from 28mm to 100mm. Please refer to the separate datasheet on this product for details. To further increase usability, the H4D-40 has been designed to allow the digital capture unit to be detached and used on a view camera by way of an adapter.
