H5 System


See the difference

At the top end of the H System list, the H5D-60 is on its way to becoming a workhorse for professional photographers who need an easy-to-use and versatile camera to cover a variety of top quality assignments where only the best is good enough. The H5D-60 brings all the advantages of a truly integrated DSLR to the large sensor format, enabling all photographic parameters to be optimised and resulting in an unsurpassed level of image quality. The True Focus with Absolute Position Lock feature combines with the Ultra Focus feature to produce exceptionally sharp files which are then honed to perfection in Phocus using Digital Auto Correction for the ultimate in quality.

The Hasselblad Natural Colour Solution (HNCS) enables you to produce outstanding and reliable out-of-the-box colours, with skin tones and colour fidelity reproduced easily and effectively. When the situation demands something a little extra, the H5D-60 can take full advantage of the Hasselblad HTS 1.5 tilt/shift adapter. Furthermore, to exploit its capabilities, the sensor unit can be used mounted on large-format / technical / view cameras.

The H5D-60 also features the largest sensor of the Hasselblad range – almost twice the size of a 35mm full-frame DSLR. This huge capture area boasts unsurpassed levels of image quality and a wide dynamic range and with its 60 megapixel CCD sensor, the H5D-60 is the perfect choice for landscape, architectural and fine art photographers; those unwilling to settle for anything but the best.


With a 60 megapixel CCD sensor, the H5D-60 gives you file sizes up to 180MB – more than enough to capture the finest detail. A versatile sensitivity range offers speeds up to ISO 800 and exposure times from 1/800 to 32 seconds.
