Hasselblad CF 39 digital back
Hasselblad CF 39 digital back : The Hasselblad CF 39 digital back provide 39Mpix digital capture with the i-Adapter, Hasselblad's interchangeable camera interface, and the option for true color multi-shot capture. The CF 39 line matches the functionality of the Hasselblad H2 camera perfectly, giving you access to the H System's range of high performance, central shutter-based lenses, and extended digital features such as digital APO Correction technology and Instant Approval Architecture. The Hasselblad CF 39 back line brings unprecedented flexibility to the specialist professional photographer, and enables you to take full advantage of all that leading edge digital photography can offer.|
Hasselblad CF-39 back - 39 Megapixel|
The Hasselblad CF39 line uses a 39 Megapixel sensor that is more than twice the physical size of today's 35mm sensors. This 39 Mpix high-resolution sensor holds more and larger pixels, which guarantees superior image quality and provides moiré free color rendering without gradation break-ups in even the finest lit surfaces. Images shot with the Hasselblad CF 39 line have unsurpassed clarity and sharpness, thanks to the ultra-high pixel resolution produced by the 39 Mpix sensor.
Hasselblad digital back - Professional photography
This sensor produces the largest digital files currently available for professional photography, making them ideal for the most demanding, high resolution printing applications and give the photographer increased flexibility and creative control when cropping or enlarging for printing.
Hasselblad CF 39MS - Studio environment
In a studio environment, the Hasselblad CF 39 line enables you to increase the color resolution of your captures by means of a unique multiple-exposure technique controlled by the optional Multi Shot Module (patent pending). The result is unique color resolution and absolutely moiré free images. The Hasselblad CF-39 can be upgraded with the 4*Res module at any time. The Hasselblad CF 39MS comes with the Multi Shot Module already built in.
Hasselblad CF39 back - Digital workflow
The CF-39 backs capture an extended set of metadata and then perform an automated correction for color aberration effects with every shot. This means that your digital captures are automatically optimized to provide the finest detail that a given lens can resolve. This feature, referred to as "digital APO correction" (DAC), signifies the digital, APO-chromatic correction of the images that takes place. We are confident that the image quality you achieve as a result of the DAC functionality will make you, and your customers, look twice.
Hasselblad CF 39 - Color management solution
In the past, color management solutions have imposed limitations on professional digital photographers, because of the need to choose a specific color profile to suit a specific job in order to capture various skin tones, metals, fabrics, flowers, etc. Hasselblad has helped solve this dilemma, with the development of a new, powerful color profile to be used with its FlexColor imaging software. Working with the new Hasselblad RGB color profile enables you to produce outstanding and reliable out-of-the-box colors, with skin tones, special product gradations, and other difficult colors reproduced easily and effectively.

Hasselblad 3F RAW - FlexColor workflow
The new Hasselblad raw file format, 3F RAW (3FR), helps implement this unique color system. The new 3F RAW file format is designed to ensure that images captured on Hasselblad digital products are quickly, effectively and safely stored on the available media (CF card, Imagebank, etc). The file format reduces the required storage space by 33% and when combined with the architecture of the Hasselblad backs, allows you to capture up to 35 shots per minute.
Adobe DNG - 3FR conversion
The 3FR files can be converted directly into Adobe's raw image format DNG ('Digital NeGative'), bringing this new technology standard to the professional photographer for the first time. The DNG file format enables raw, compressed image files to be opened directly in Adobe PhotoShop. This enables photographers to operate quickly and efficiently, reducing the "downtime" taken to process image data and enabling final images to reach the customer more quickly. Hasselblad image files carry a full set of metadata, including capture conditions, keywords and copyright, facilitating work with image asset management solutions. For specialist commercial photographers, the full productivity and creative freedom offered by Hasselblad's FlexColor workflow software is also available via importing the DNG file.
Hasselblad CF39 digital back - Professional SLR camera accessory
The Hasselblad CF39 models can be attached to most of the professional SLR and View Cameras of the market with a simple 4-screw attached plate, enabling you to bring digital capture to your favorite cameras and lenses with one convenient digital back. See detailed list of supported cameras below.
Instant Approval Architecture - Hasselblad technology
Limitless digital image capture loses some of its potential if the photographer cannot quickly review and select the best images to present to the client. Building on the success of its Audio Exposure Feedback technology, Hasselblad has created Instant Approval Architecture (IAA), an enhanced set of feedback tools, designed to liberate the photographer to focus on the shoot rather than the selection process. IAA triggers audible and visible signals for each image captured, telling the photographer immediately whether the image has a red, amber or green light status. The information 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. All Hasselblad CF-39 backs are perfectly integrated with the IAA architecture.
Professional digital workflow - Image manipulation
FlexColor offers an image processing workflow with the highest degree of control for the studio photographer. In tethered operation, tools like live video and overlay masking help bring productivity to advanced set composition. The newest FlexColor version allows the photographer to manipulate color temperature and compare image details across multiple images for precise image selection.
Hasselblad back - Interface and Storage
Optimum portability and image storage are critical for the professional photographer. The CF-39 backs enable you to choose between portable CF card storage, the flexible Firewire drive, or tethered operation with extended, special capture controls. With these three operating and storage options, the photographer is able to select a mode to suit the nature of the work at hand, whether in the studio or on location.
Hasselblad CF-39 back - Operation and Service
The CF-39 backs are operated via an easy-to-use user interface, utilizing a series of "instant" one-button-click operations including instant capture, instant browse, instant approval, instant zoom, and instant image info. Naturally, as with all Hasselblad products, the new CF-39 gives you access to the full range of Hasselblad service and support, ensuring that your investment will last you a long time to come. And the latest firmware updates to your H-system back are always just a download away.
