    Hello,

    Any one tried the new capacity 2900mha battery on a H3D ???

    Pedro, I have not yet received the new Battery. With the H4D you can use it and you have about 40% more power. So in this case it should also work with the H3D I think.

    Why not just ask Hasselblad?

    Yes, you can use the new Li-ion 2,900 mAh battery pack on previous model cameras:
    H2D, H3D, H3DII, H4D and H4x.

    Hasselblad USA website: http://www.hasselbladusa.com/service...downloads.aspx

    Camera Body firmware: H4D, H3DII, H3D, H2D 2.3.1/16.0.7
    Firmware version 2.3.1/16.0.7 is a feature release


    Firmware package CB130308.hbf requires one of the above mentioned Hasselblad digital capture products.

    Highlights
    Support for New 7.2V/2900 mAh Li-ion rechargeable battery

    The firmware package CB130308.hbf for the H-series camera body, contains the following firmware versions:

    Product Firmware Version
    H4D 2.3.1/16.0.7
    H3DII, H3D, H2D 2.3.1

    Camera Body firmware: H4X 2.3.1/16.0.7
    Firmware version 2.3.1/16.0.7 is a feature release


    Firmware package H4X130308.hbf is for the Hasselblad H4X camera body only.

    Highlights
    Support for New 7.2V/2900 mAh Li-ion rechargeable battery

    The firmware package H4X130308.hbf for the H4X camera body, contains the following firmware versions:
    Product Firmware Version
    H4X 2.3.1/16.0.7

    This firmware update is only possible via Phocus. We recommend to always use the latest version of Phocus (currently 2.7.1) to perform the firmware update.
    To perform this camera body upgrade you must attach a Hasselblad digital back to the H4X body. (compatible digital backs include CF & CFH). The upgrade can also be performed using a H2D, H3D, H3D-II or H4D sensor unit. In this case a message “Back not compatible” will appear but the upgrade function will still work.

    Paul, once you install the newer firmware will the older grip batteries still work?

    Yes, you can use the old charger with the new 2,900 mAh battery. It will take a minimum of 8 hours to reach 100% capacity. I have not fully tested at this time, i am waiting for these items to arrive on my desk.

    I no longer work in the field these days. I handle all support from the office.
    You will i'm sure run into Eric Peterson in Philadelphia, he is our Field Application Specialist.

    Thanks

    Pedro,

    If you wish to utilize the new 2,900 mAh battery you will need to update the firmware in your camera body. If you need assistance, please contact me at: [email protected] or call at 800-367-6434 x303.

    The update process is straight forward.
