cracked sensor cover - repairable?
« on: April 28, 2018, 06:43:33 PM »

Hasselblad H4D back dropped.

Any ideas if it's repairable and how much it's likely to be?

Ask Hasselblad for a quote. They will need to remove the glass to see if the sensor is damaged. Let me know as I need a H4D back.

As long as the sensor itself is fine, yes.  The part (COATED IR FILTER) when I scratched my H4D-50 was $441, labor was a couple hundred more (2015 prices).  I had a full clean/check with some small repairs and it was $1,250 after tax & return shipping.

Been there, done that. As mentioned the main thing is to ensure that no spalling of the broken glass hit the sensor as this can cause damage (mine did so I always shoot LCC and had it converted to IR).

My Phase One sensor glass was a little more expensive at $800 but the back was determined uneconomical to repair since I killed some pixels with my hit. Thus I had the original sensor frame refitted with a 720nm IR glass and kept the new std IR filter in case I wanted to shoot colour. Capture One LCC mapping fixes my dead pixels perfectly so it was all good in the end.
