    Hello

    I have the h5d-50c and will be upgrading to the wifi model when it becomes available

    the Australian dealer told me the upgrade will be available in March so still waiting


    it will be nice to show clients on an ipad rather than the camera screen (which is still not very good)

    This is an interesting update, also here I've hear About some delay about the upgrade.
    Definitely it's possible that there are very few or none at All H5D-50c WiFi out, that's why I've started this thread, maybe in the next weeks we have the first real world impression over the WiFi version and the Upgrades !

    Best, Domenico.

    Hi,

    according to Hasselblad Germany there was a delay again for launching the wifi model. But they expect it to be shipped daily.

    Would WiFi make sense on the CFV-50c ?
    i know you would have restricted functions , but you might see your image in life view for example on an iPAD .

    For now I hear only about the WiFi on the H5D-50c Backs, but I think they can make it also available for CFV's, but it's difficult to say if it's an upgrade Hasselblad want to implement, the use in this case is only related to Live View and / or to change some setting trough an Ipad / iphone etc.

    I don't know how it works definitely but if it permit live view at 100% crop on a retina display it would be much better than the good live view of the back...

    Best, Domenico.

    With a CFV-50c having WiFi , you could set up your tech camera very similar to this wonderful P1 A-Series camera , Ray shows in the TECH CAMERA PORTRAIT thread .

    Re: Hasselblad H5D-50c WiFi ?

    i gotta say using that alpa/i-phone/wi-fi hook up seems ridiculous given the beautiful compact nature of the TC/STC

    what, your just taken or live view image wi-fi's over the net to the world at large, then back to your phone, 2" away?

    John, not sure if I got you right, but Hasselblad's H5D50c with Wi-Fi offers two different modes, i.e. client and direct mode. The latter works as an adhoc network which can be accessed either by iPhone or iPad. So no worldwide sharing ;-) and no computer necessary.

    regards Udo

    Re: Hasselblad H5D-50c WiFi ?

    Today I've received a mail with some encouraging information about the arrival of the WiFi versions:

    HASSELBLAD H5D50C WIFI: SURRENDER BEGINS.
    The long-awaited delivery of the Hasselblad H5D50c WIFI begins now probably in the next week. If you have not ordered yet, would now have the opportunity to correct it....

    It come from a german online shop, and I think the wait now is only questions of days...

    John

    That new iPHONE holder is a kind of "contamination" for the beautiful design of the TC , as much as the older holders .
    I did not think of an iPHONE but of an iPAD together with a possible WiFi in the
    CFV-50c . I don't give up hope for that .

    Right; iPhones should only be used on an STC.

    To sell them all to IKEA...

    https://www.facebook.com/Goecker.AB?fref=nf




    Well IKEA is famous for low cost furniture... now making photos with four H5D-50c can increase a little their prices.....

    For today it's all,

    H5D-50c WiFi news....

    At the moment the informations about who had the upgrade are very low,
    yesterday I've read on "luminous landscape" a message of a newbie user that said he had the upgraded H5D and it's working,
    then, he list some function (taken from the pdf manual), he talk also about the purple error that occur sometime (rarely) in zoom live view... but it's a known problem also when tethered....

    I'm waiting some other test if someone have time to write about...

    Best regards, Domenico.

    Hi Domenico,

    I cannot comment on the wifi upgrade opportunity, but I received my H5D50c WiFi end of February form Nicky at Hasselblad UK. Yes, there was another delay of a week or two due to licensing processes. Hope this helps.

    Regards, Udo

    Re: Hasselblad H5D-50c WiFi ?

    Today I found some thechnical specifications About the WiFi in H5D's

    Frequency Range : 2412.0 - 2462.0 MHz
    Output Watts: 0.178 W

    About the power I think it's very good value, and certainly it is possible to operate the camera to a distance around 50m or far, or inside a big set room without connection problems... At All...

    According to the feature of the module I think the battery capacity is reduced (if wifi is used) by around 20% of time / capacity.


    I found also some interesting documentation that states there is also Bluetooth and 5 GHz band capability in the module.... BUT both are disabled.

    There are no information if this disabled functions in future will be available to the user, maybe Hasselblad will use them in the future H6D model ?
    Who knows......

    Anyway Happy Easter to All !!
    Domenico.

    And...

    For who is curious to see the WiFi module fitted inside the H5D-50c and it's proportions here's a photo



    Considering the dimension I think it is possible in future to see a CFV-50c WiFi maybe next Year...

    The WiFi module It's very tiny measuring only 14.8 x 22.3 x 2.9 mm it's like a post stamp...

    Re: Hasselblad H5D-50c WiFi ?

    Another News :

    The H5D-50c WiFi is equipped with a New Firmware Version 3.6.8R
    when the latest firmware available on Hasselblad web is 3.5.9R, It's clear the wifi module require a differentiation in firmware because the new module program...



    My upgraded body is arrived today thanks Hasselblad and the guys at the shop where I bought the camera, the upgrade took near 4 days plus shipping for a total of 6 working days (they are very fast)...

    If in this Easter Holidays I find the time and inspiration I will make a little report about functions / possibility and weakness of the unplugged 50c !

    Best, Domenico.

    First of all Happy Easter to all !

    This morning I've made a little review of how WiFi is functioning using the iPad and Phocus mobile... here's the video I've put on Youtube:

    Look good. A bit sluggish on the wireless live view, but otherwise it looks great. I'm hoping to buy one of these kits for work soon and this would be a great feature in the studio, even if wireless live view isn't something we'd use all that often.

    Well, the refresh rate full screen is little slower than the in camera live view, this because the iPad resolution is very high i think, but when the live view is zoomed 100% is more quick... The focus system with the two arrow is less precise than the version in Phocus and require some step to tune the correct focus as you can see, the Focus Mobile software is at it's first versions and it possible to improve it.

    I found also that Phocus is firewire oriented and for now it doesn't see the wifi camera.. I think now Hasselblad have to improve their software a little more.

    Best, Domenico.

    When I tested the live view on back I was very impressed with the refresh rate and clarity. I wouldn't expect miracles over wifi. Thanks for sharing.
