The Hasselblad H2 is a medium-format, dual-platform camera that builds on the success of the popular H1. This model, designed for the toughest professional use, makes either high-end digital capture or film capture as easy as point-and-shoot. Multiple exposure is possible with a number of exposures that can be set to 2, 3, 4, 5 and no limit (with film magazine only). Additonal features include: flash control with Automatic TTL centre weighted system - uses built-in flash or flashes compatible with SCA3002 (Metz); built-in metering system; and available flash can be used at all shutter speeds - flash can be synchronized in the beginning or at the end of the exposure.The H2 camera provides optional digital capture using sensors more than twice the physical size of today's 35mm sensors. The integral lens shutters in H System lenses allow flash sync down to 1/800 second and provide silent and vibration-free operation. These larger sensors hold more and larger pixels, which ensures the highest possible image quality and moire free color rendering without gradation break-ups - in even the most subtly lit surfaces and with low noise in shadow areas. Full range of high performance lenses. H System lenses cover a wide spectrum of focal lengths and feature the fastest and most precise 645 autofocus system on the market today.
The large, bright viewfinder on the H2 camera gives you a crisp and clear view of your work, enabling you to work in even dim lighting with perfect results. In addition, the HV 90X viewfinder offers near 100% image view and diopter correction for vision problems. The large eyepiece also allows full image view even when wearing glasses. The grip LCD and the viewfinder LCD are of dot-matrix type; This means that the camera is able to present clear and easy-to-understand information and messages instead of fixed and sometimes not so obvious symbols.
The H2 is a complex piece of gear and has a wide range of functions that can be set by the user for optimal use. A "Profiles" function is included to provide a fool proof way of making these changes. The viewfinder also features a compact flash; While primarily intended to be used as a fill flash, it can also be used as main flash in certain cases; The flash has a metric guide number of 12, but when used as fill flash with -2 stops adjustment it is equal to guide number 24.
With the SCA 3902 flash adapter, any flash compatible with the SCA3002 system can be used; This means that you can choose from small and compact flashes for extremely portable use, as well as larger and more powerful flashes when so require. The built-in flash metering system is designed to be used when working with manually controlled flashes, such as studio flashes. Film wind-on and wind-off is also automatic with all films. In addition, the customizable data imprinting feature allows data, such as exposure parameters, to be printed along the film edge and outside of the image area; The imprint function can include a user selectable text string that will also be printed on the film; This text string is also added to the image meta data when using Hasselblad Ixpress CF or Ixpress CFH digital backs.
The H2/CFH combination also provides you with Hasselblad's Instant Approval Architecture, bringing automated image classification into your optional digital workflow from the split second of capture. Limitless optional digital image capture loses some of its potential if you can't quickly review and select the best images from your shoot. Building on the success of its Audio Exposure Feedback technology, Hasselblad is proud to introduce Instant Approval Architecture (IAA), an enhanced set of feedback tools, designed to allow you to focus on your shooting rather than the selection process. IAA triggers audible and visible signals for each image captured, immediately telling you whether the image has an approved, rejected, or borderline status; This is represented as a red, amber or green light and 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 in the lab.
The software in the H2 camera is easily upgradeable, meaning that existing cameras will be able to gain new features simply by upgrading the camera firmware. This upgrade can easily be carried out by the user by simply connecting the camera with an optional Ixpress CF or Ixpress CFH digital back to a computer and downloading the upgrade. The H2 camera is built to the same, extremely strict standards that have always has been used by Hasselblad, ensuring a long life even with tough use; However, all cameras, just like cars, requires regular service to function optimally; Naturally, as with all Hasselblad products, the H2 gives you access to the full range of Hasselblad service and support, ensuring that your investment will last you a long time to come.
