Hasselblad launches 200-megapixel camera27 May 2011 17:46:21
A camera capable of taking 200-megapixel pictures has been launched by Hasselblad.
Called the H4D-200MS, the camera actually uses a 50-megapixel sensor, but with Hasselblad's multishot technology combines four shots into one, reports cnet.com.
While this makes for amazingly detailed photos, it also means a great deal of storage space is needed, with a single photo taking up around 600MB.
As such, a good-sized memory card will be essential for users of the H4D-200MS and the camera is compatible with both CompactFlash memory cards and external hard drives.
Users will also need a great deal of patience to take a shot, with each full photo taking around 30 seconds to take.
Furthermore, the H4D-200MS will be of interest to only the most serious of photography enthusiasts and professionals - costing around $45,000 (£27,300).
Those after a slightly cheaper digital camera may be interested in the new V-Lux 30 by Leica, which was unveiled earlier this week.
