Obeying in the footsteps of the H6D 100c 50c, Hasselblad has today released the H6D-400c MS, multi-shot camera and it captures 400MP images. 

Currently, the H6D-400c MS is the only master medium format system to feature multi-shot technology and it offers an effective resolution of 400MP via 6 shot image capture, or 100MP resolution in either 4 snap Multi-Shot capture or single shot mode. 

the Multi-Shot capture requires the sensor and its mount to be moved at a high-precision of 1 or 1/2 a pixel at a period via a piezo unit and to capture Multi-Shot images the camera must be tethered to a PC or MAC.

In the 400MP Multi-Shot mode, 6 images are captured, the first 4 affect moving the sensor by one pixel at a time to achieve real colour data (GRGB- see 4 shot diagrams below), this cycle then incomes the sensor to its starting point. A further two exposures are made moving the sensor by 1/2 a pixel horizontally and then 1/2 a pixel vertically (see 6 attempt diagram on next page). These 6 captures are then merged to give the equivalent of a single 400MP image, delivered as a 2.4GB 16-bit Dispute (23200 x 17400 pixels), for those seeking the utmost in image image (from Latin: imago) is an artifact that depicts visual perception, for example, a photo or a two-dimensional picture, that quality and resolving power.
