This is a forbidden page, and when you get into it (by going to ulookfierce, then home, then editing the web address) it is in spanish.

I don't think it is wise for HasselBlad to try and create a community in the way that Leica has it's user generated one. When you put everyone in the same room and shut the doors creating a club you generally grow old together and die without acquiring new blood. Plus I think it is ludicrous to attach oneself to a brand.

Well, it's live on the site. The countdown has ended and, as rumored, the countdown ended to reveal another countdown -- more details on both the H4D-40 and the Owner's Club will follow in 10 days. I think it would have had greater impact if they simply started the countdown 10 days later and ended 10 days from today, but perhaps I'm off-base.

H4D-40 for under 12000 euros including and 80 mm lens is not bad ... I like it and feel sorry for Leica with the rather overprices S2 ...

You can buy my H3dII-39 with 3 lenses for that kind of money, and then you have a proven system that filtered out the problems and all lenses to start with...... but hey, we live in a trow-away society, so i will have to drop my camera to the floor and claim insurance.......

Yup, EUR 13995,--

Nothing earth shattering about that price: you basically get a 40mpx camera with updated AF for the price of current H3D-31.

IMHO this will not let Hasselblad tap into new segments of the market, I wonder what the marketing people were smoking :-) when they came up with that idea.

"O Lord why won't you give me a 55mm square sensor with 36mpx to attach to my current 501/CM paperweight, B&W only would be fine, I would donate 5000 silver pieces for that"

I am equally a little perplex at this. Lots of secrecy to reveal "just" another camera, which is basically not as revolutionary as presented and replaces the H3D-II 31 and 39 at about the same price point. So what is the deal all about or am I missing something?
For a while I had thought it was a new camera with the Leica S2 form factor (as this had been hinted at only a year ago) but it does not seem to be the case.

It does not replace the 39Mp. It is just another 40Mp camera next to the HXd39Mp. Phase also has a P40 and a P45. The H4d40 is small sensoe, pretty importand if you happen to like wide angle photography.

... And still no mention of a Vertical Grip?

This was worthy of a 30-day Countdown?

Too bad. I think everyone was expecting something outside the box of current medium format offerings. A new sensor, with fewer mp than several existing medium format cameras no less, just seems so unexciting. Well, at least they timed the announcement for normal business hours so I did not have to get up early to catch it.

Does it have crop factor? Is it 33x48?

Definitely underwhelming. Hasselblad did an "iPad"!

It was even the more disappointing because I was told that it was an exciting new product that will interest the high-end D-SLR users. To me that means people who'd be using a 1Ds Mk III or a D3X - but the price differential and ergonomics are sooooooo far apart, I can't see how it would be more exciting than the existing H3DII-31 already was to that crowd. Just a few more megapixels and the same high price isn't going to do it for them, as far as I can tell...
