Hasselblad H6D: the Best Software Interface on a Hardware-Based Camera

by planetMitch1 Comment

Another video from Hugh Brownstone as well as a very cool sit down with the CEO – and it is cool to see something innovative from Hasselblad. 

Again I hope that Canon is watching… how many times they've told me that professionals don't want a touch screen LCD for menus etc. Hasselblad gets it!

Or am I just a consumer who wants my ‘pro' camera to be more like my consumer tools?

Hasselblad H6D: the Best Software Interface I've Ever Seen on a Hardware-Based Camera

I had a chance to chat with Paul Claussen, Senior Technical Manager, at Hasselblad's New York City H6D launch event. Good guy, fantastic user interface on the H6D. Fascinating that they took their inspiration for the UI from smartphones — and smart. Pricing & Availability at B&H: 3bm.io/h6d
