The Hasselblad H system was introduced 21 years ago during Photokina 2002 in Cologne, Germany. According to a new post by Capture Integration, however – one of the largest sellers of medium format equipment – Hasselblad has ended its H system DSLRs. The Hasselblad H1 marked a shift in the company’s mindset going from 6×6 to 645 (4:3) format. The H1D was identical to the H1 but with a 22-megapixel back.
In the last 21 years, the system has come a long way. But it’s been a while since we’ve seen a new release. The H6D line was introduced in 2016, and the company was acquired by DJI in 2017. The last new camera in the H lineup was 2018’s 400-megapixel monster, the Hasselblad H6D-400C (buy here). It appears it will be the last, as the company sees success with its X mirrorless system.
