Yesterday meets today and is ready for tomorrow.

The CFV-50c comes with a cutting edge CMOS sensor (just like its H5D-50c sibling) offering photographers outstanding performance at all ISO settings.

Now dedicated V System users – even those with cameras going back as far as 1957 – have access to the very latest imaging technology from the world’s leading medium format camera maker, but can still revere and cherish V System classic design and feel.

The CFV-50c celebrates almost sixty years of V System history but now offers users instant access to the revelations of today’s progressive imaging environment.

Photographers can now embrace the wealth and bandwidth of latest photo know-how and employ it with ease to fully exploit the potential for their older cameras.  Breathtaking results from a world-beating digital back.

It’s Hasselblad genius at your fingertips.
