Hasselblad announced, on 26 June, the CFV-39, a new 39-megapixel back for the V-system cameras. Not only is it designed to match the appearance of the classic V- system, it has a rectangular 36.7 x 49.0 mm sensor (100-per-cent larger than a 35mm full-frame DSLR), with a lens factor of 1.1x. A second shooting option using a square format produces a 5412 x 5412 pixel (29-megapixel) image with a lens factor of 1.5x.
Also of note for users of the V-system (Carl Zeiss) lenses is the inclusion of automatic fringing (lateral chromatic aberration), distortion and vignetting correction, using the bundled Phocus software. The software also allows tethered shooting.
