    Perhaps someone else knows the answers to these questions.

    Howard. Google is your friend: http://www.hasselblad.com/promotions/apl.aspx for APL and the font of all H knowledge: http://www.luminous-landscape.com/fo...=28151.10;wap2

    I find it amusing that Nick's hasselbladdigitalforum.com has hardly even developed a sweat about the H4 X while LuLa is positively foaming and we all know what is happening here. Maybe we H believers are so dumb that we can't even recognise when we are being screwed.

    Man, this thread turned crazy really quickly! Personally, having no horse in this "race", all things considered this seems like a smart move on Hasselblad's part.

    OK, I might be still far from digital MF but I have to say I'd really have a go with Hasselblad because I like their integration. It's just one thing that stops me here (except for the cost ) - it's the inability to use their back on technical cameras (I know there is a way but it's far from perfect).

    I agree. I just don't understand the heat. Hasselblad announce an upgrade path to the latest camera for users of older H kit and everyone goes into a frenzy. Meanwhile, Mamiya body users wait patiently for a new body sometime in the future and nobody seems to mind. Like I said, I just don't understand it at all.

    FYI, The HD backs mount on any technical camera with the proper adapter just like any back. The one lacking aspect is there is no on-board battery so it requires a separate battery or use of the Image Bank-II when not tethered to a computer. The H4D/60 now has a port on the bottom of the back for a battery, and the battery solution for it is in final testing and very close to being offered.

    Thank you, Marc. That is promising. The idea of having fully integrated back + body + lens + software package with the option of attaching the back to a technical camera sounds like photo freedom to me

    Thanks.
    The quality of my 28mm with the H4D-60 is uncropped very good up to the edges if stopped down to 11 or 16.

    But I should mentioned that I selected my copy out of 4 and not each copy's performance was acceptable.

    There's the option too, of using a Hasselblad CFV DB for technical photography. These have on-board batteries like a Phase and no micro lenses, so you can go wide!

    Hasselblad takes on wiener dog, Harley-Davidson, and a unique individual. The photo below is close to a 100% crop. It was taken with an obsolete H2f, CF-39 MS, and a HC120 I macro lens. The full-frame picture and story: http://bit.ly/th6seN
