    Hasselblad H4D 40 vs H4D 31

    what is the difference between the 2 models (H4D 40 vs H4D 31) other than the number of pixels ?
    a different sensor ?
    IQ ?

    thank you

    The 40 has a newer Kodak sensor. It has longer exposure possibility (256sec's). Its higher ISO is better than the 31. I have also been told it renders nicer than the 31, much like the 50 but on a smaller sensor.

    thanks
    then the H4D 31 is more like H3D II 39 + true focus ?

    It is exactly like the H3DII31 but with true focus. TF is not to be underestimated however. It actually makes it really easy to use lenses much wider open and place the focus exactly where you want in the frame.

    TF is no a reason for me to upgrade

    thank you

    I've been shooting with the h4d40 this week alongside my H3D31. I get at least a stop more out of the 40, better colours and a nicer file. The true focus is as Dustbak said not something to overlook. I shot 600 frames of Rugby players earlier this week and the focus hit rate was astounding.
