David,

A few questions about the H4D-31:

1) is there an official $ price yet?  I have read $13,312 but I am not sure whether that is just a calculated price or the official one.
2) can the body be bought without the lens?
3) if not could the standard 80mm lens be replaced with another lens adding the more cost of that lens to the kit price?

Thanks, Joris.

Yes Dick,

The H4D60 casing has been redesigned to accommodate this.

You will see that the flash sync connections are now on the base and there are 4 screw points which a battery caddy can be fixed.

I hope to have one of these for testing soon and will post some pictures.

D



Thank you David...

Please  clarify... the battery pack attaches to the H4D-60 digiback (so it could be used untethered on a view camera). If it attached to the camera, then it would work with all H4Ds.

Would this also help with the Mac power problem, when tethered?

The H4D-60 was the obvious choice for landscape and architectural photography, with the high res and the fill, recover and clarify tools in Phocus, with the one reservation that we did not know (until now) that we will be able to use it powered by an attached power pack.

Is there a product designation for the digiback without the "point-and-shoot-adapter"?, and is the back available without it?

Before we go further....

Point and Shoot (No offence to Holga)



H4D



The battery fits underneath the digital back of the H4D60.  The H4D60 is a different design to previous products.

If you read my post you will see I said that the FireWire issue is not a power problem.  Therefore the presence or not of a battery would make no difference.

The H4D60 is only available as an H4D60.

David

Hi David

Can you clarify this. Is there going to be someway to attach an external battery to the back. Could this work for my H4D 50?

Andrew

Correct, but this is only for the H4D60 as it has been redesigned to accommodate this.

Thanks, Joris.

1) Official price is 9995.  This includes the 80mm lens or the CF lens adapter to use V system lenses.

2) You cannot buy the body without a lens.

3) This would be at the discretion of the dealer you were buying from.

You know,I'm a bit surprised
I was hoping this kit was goingmto be priced around $10-$12k,
Make it a really attractive entry point.
At this price one may as well add the extra $4k in and go up to the H4D-40.
But hey just IMHO
Thanks

if you already have the standard 80mm lens then the difference is indeed only $4K
I also noticed that the H3DII-31 has been discontinued by B&H in the meanwhile...
so the H4D-31 is now the cheapest Hasselblad offering

Yeah, i guess i understand both positions.

From the clients perspective, they are like, well, the H3DII-31 was just 10K. So why not the H4D31?

From Hasselblad's perspective, the H4D is newer, has a longer support life, and has new features.

So it's tough. I was really hoping to upgrade to the H4D31, but it doesn't seem like there will be a upgrade path for H3DII-31 users. :(

David: can you give us a realistic update for delivery of the H4D-60?

I know you have had one to play with and one has been written about on this forum.

Last we heard was a late august date: but for only a very few cameras?

thnx

Hi John,

We have been delivering for quite some time now. There was a delay in production through September but all is normal now.
