The Hasselblad CFV-50 is Sexy


I love my Nikon D700 but if given the chance to use the Hasselblad CFV-50, I’d drop my Nikon like a bad habit.

Compatible with virtually all existing V-System Cameras and featuring a 50 megapixel sensor that is twice the size of even the best full frame 35mm DSLRs, the CFV-50 allows you to keep both the design and functionality of our classic V-System cameras while at the same time gaining access to a range of advanced features unavailable to film cameras, such as our proprietary DAC lens correction technology to correct for distortion, aberration, and vignetting, and the Hasselblad Natural Color Solution, which guarantees accurate colors straight out of the box.

This camera isn’t just a technical marvel, it is beautiful. Quite possibly the sexiest digital camera I have ever seen.


The Hasselblad CVF-50 digital back on a classic Hasselblad body. That my friends is photography heaven. The only possible competition might be the Better Light Super 10K-HS 4×5 digital back on a field camera…

And actually, if you’re willing to buy me either of these camera systems, go ahead and buy me both? Just think of what I could do with either of these…

Camera-nerd Love

When I first saw this video, I swear I was drooling all over my MacBook Pro. And if you know me, the drooling was over the camera, not the two models unboxing it, though you don’t have to be a camera nerd to feel the same way.

The Leica S2 is a 37.5 megapixel camera of absolute stunning engineering.  If I had an extra $27,000 laying around, I’d probably be all over this.  Of course, add another $10,000 or so for the appropriate lenses.  Yikes.

Of course, there is always the newly released Hasselblad H4D, a 40 megapixel medium format camera that I am also lusting over.  It’s basically my dream come true.  Well, if it also shot full HD video.  But heck, this is close enough for me right now.

If anyone reading this blog feel so inclined to purchase either of these for me, I promise a lifetime of love, thanks and praise.  Everyone has their price, for me, apparently, it’s either of these cameras and paired lenses.  Here’s your chance!
