Hasselblad Multi-Shot Cameras – The Ultimate in Studio Photography

Hasselblad’s unique Multi-Shot technology, available in 50 and 200 megapixel resolutions, provides the ultimate in still subject capture. Whether for the extremely high demands of archiving and art reproduction or for obtaining the absolutely highest resolution in high-end product, architectural, still-life shooting, or for any other kind of shooting where detail or resolution are important, Hasselblad Multi-Shot cameras bring mind blowing detail and open new creative and commercial doors.

Hasselblad has raised the bar yet again concerning the capture of super high-quality images. It builds on the achievements and success of multi-shot capture technology with the H5D-50 & 200 MS and the liberating characteristics of the H5D-50c – the worlds first CMOS medium format camera. The H5D-50c & 200c MS allow still- life studio photography at moiré free 50 or 200 Megapixel resolution. Four & six-shot technology exploits what the HC lenses have to offer, which is a very great deal in itself, and combines it with the latest CMOS capabilities to produce a quality that is hard to beat. From fine cars to miniature artworks and from delicate fabrics to diamonds – or quite simply where only the best reproduction is acceptable – the multi-shot image offers true colour and an astonishing moiré free level of detail.

As if that was not enough, this camera still claims all the advantages of the H5D line – True Focus, Ultra Focus, Digital Lens Correction plus being able to shoot regardless of lighting conditions as a result of the very high ISO settings that are capable of unforeseen high quality with remarkably little noise. These top of the range features make the H5D-50c & 200c MS outstanding camera choices – a studio workhorse to produce tremendous quality in a controlled environment to doubling up as a top flight, hand held single-shot camera for shots on the move. Versatility was always a Hasselblad cornerstone and remains so. This is the camera that takes care of almost any assignment to produce the kind of quality that Hasselblad is world famous for.


The H5Dc Multi-Shot 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 finders both providing the best viewfinder image on any camera.
  • The choice of combining point-and–shoot and tilt/shift to solve creative commercial challenges.
  • The ability to combine working tethered and untethered to get the most of your camera system both on location and in the studio.
  • The option of processing your raw images in Hasselblad’s Phocus imaging toolbox, or working with your raw images directly in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom.
  • Phocus Mobile app to control the camera and view images on your iPhone/iPad.


Both the H5D-50c MS and the H5D-200c MS are capable of live shots in 50 megapixel format, in essence providing two cameras in one package. The H5D-200c MS raises the bar a bit further, by extending our proprietary multi-shot capture technology to bring 200 megapixel resolution to your still-life and studio photography. The H5D-50c MS/200c MS digital back can also be used on view cameras by way of an H System adapter.
