The 200MP Monster from Hasselblad Costs $45,000

Whoa. If you happen to be in the market for a digital camera and something like the Nikon D5100 or Canon T3i simply will not do, then you can easily divert your attention to the guys and gals at Hasselblad. Behold the Hasselblad H4D-200MS.

Following in the tradition of other Hasselblad offerings before it, this beast of a camera doesn’t come up short in the megapixel count. The new top-end medium wonder can shoot an incredible 200 megapixels… but it kind of cheats to do that, since it only has a 50MP sensor.

That’s where the multishot technology comes into play. It’ll take six shots in succession and combine them into a single image, using a piezeoelectric motor to move the image sensor around before each shot. That’s why it’s only good for static objects (the multishot process takes 30 seconds) and only good if you’re using a tripod.

The end result of this piezoelectric madness? A single image that’s about 600MB, boasting 16 bits of color depth per pixel. And yes, it costs a whopping $45,000, so the Hasselblad H4D-200MS isn’t exactly for the casual hobbyist.
