FrontRunners: Fully Focused
The new Hasselblad H3DII-39MS (www.hasselbladusa.com) is about as far as you can get from a point-and-shoot camera. The digital single-lens-reflex camera (about $44,000) features a 39-megapixel image resolution—more than twice that of most high-end digital models. The H3DII-39MS also minimizes blur through four-shot sequencing, a process that involves capturing four successive shots and then merging them into a single image with optimal color and clarity. Weighing just under 5.5 pounds, the H3DII can take 39 pictures per minute.
