I don't use this blog to promote cameras or products, but this morning I got an email from Hasselblad announcing the new H3DII-31
I know nothing about the digital medium format cameras, mainly because the $30,000 price tag has stopped me from even reading about them. But this new Hassey model has a 44 X 33mm, 31 Megapixel sensor and is being sold as a kit with body and 80mm lens for under $18,000. This is still out of my budget, but not on a ridiculous scale. It says to me that ultra high end digital equipment is starting to become somewhat competitively priced, and it is only a matter of time until they reach a price point that will be within the reach of serious amateurs and budget conscious pros.
