Hasselblad is counting down to something – but what?

Update: Hasselblad has included another teaser on their site, which says this:

Camera Tech assumes that it is something not dissimilar to Canon’s World Of EOS service.

Note: they are counting down to the night of 31st; exactly the midnight between January and February.

What is Hasselblad counting to?

Update: cameratech resuming

Since the technical problems over a month ago, CameraTech has been down; primarily due to several staff resigning. As a result, we have unfortunately not been able to report on much. We have been going through several changes, majorly including changes in staff, and now can confidently resume. However, we resume our reporting by tomorrow (5th Dec).

Further to that, on a side note, one of our staff members has written an article in Digital Photography School. The article is here.

We apologise heartily for all the inconvenience and hope you will resume reading.

Note: CameraTech is still looking for one more staff member. To help, please contact us.


Canon will be absent at PMA; focus on CES

Canon has announced that it will have no representative at the international PMA show in Anaheim, California next February (2010).

Because of confluence of technology across Canon’s range, the ‘decision has been made by Canon USA to only participate in 2010 trade shows and events that have the broadest reach,’ Canon said.

However, Canon will be at the international CES show in Las Vegas, Nevada, which runs from January 7-10th.

Note: it can be inferred that Canon is announcing new technology at CES, and could even include the 1500D/Rebel T1 and/or the 1D MK III — which may feature a new Digic V processor — and that is why Canon wants to skip PMA next year.


Phase One 645DF medium format camera

Phase One has introduced its 645DF medium format camera. It is developed with Mamiya Digital Imaging, so the camera will be available under both brands.

The camera offers a maximum shutter speed of 1/1600 sec, faster autofocusing and capture rates than past models, and is the only 645 camera to offer focal plane and leaf shutters. It’s compatible with most digital backs from Phase One and Mamiya AFD mount, including ones from Phase One, Mamiya and Leaf. Both companies have announced a partnership with Schneider Kreuznach, and there are now 55mm, 80mm and 110mm F/2.8 leaf shutter lenses for the 645DF.

The camera should start to ship at the end of the year, with prices at around $5990 or €4290, and lenses at $2490 or €1790.

  • dedicated controls like a mode dial, shutter and zoom
