Hasselblad announces first DMF CMOS
Hasselblad announced the first medium format CMOS digital back.
Well, I guess it'd be a "digital camera" seeing as their backs and bodies are mostly a closed system now, the strange H4X trade-in required model notwithstanding.
The press release is pretty vague; claims improved high ISO, improved long exposure, and better Live View.
Of course, more details to come in March.

Naturally, in medium format land, requirements are different, and being a smaller niche market, things also move at a different pace.
This move by Hasselblad is good, because even if it isn't a game-changer, at least it'll remind the competition that there is indeed competition; there hasn't been much change or true evolution in digital medium format for a while now.
Of course, it could be too late; all the digital Hasselblad users (well, admittedly there's not many digital medium format users in one pale) I know have already changed to Phase One or Leica S, or left digital medium format all together.
