Aerial photography delivers better results today than ever before and Hasselblad continues to grow its presence in the market, this is reflected in the Hasselblad A6D-100c, the latest evolution of Hasselblad aerial cameras. The A6D heralds a technological improvement that is noticeably greater than earlier generations and includes a feature that allows up to eight cameras to be synchronized within 20 μs (microseconds). Only a simple bus-type cable connection is required between all cameras in the set-up.
This feature completely eliminates any issues in post-production caused by un-synchronized exposures. Nine H System lenses are available in aerial versions with secure locking mounts to minimize vibration and flexing which guarantees the image plane and sensor stay parallel at all times. These units ship with their focus precisely adjusted and fixed at infinity. The focal length range from 24mm to 300mm of these lenses results in a horizontal AFOV (Apparent Field Of View) of 96° to 10.2° covering most applications. The new generation of leaf shutters for the H lenses has an extended lifetime, which ensures reliability during flight. In addition, the exposure time for the aerial lenses has been improved up to 1/4000 of a second, for sharp and crisp images. Traditionally, FMC systems typically only compensate for movement in a single direction, but the fast leaf shutter-based exposure time can both compensate for ground speed and the roll and pitch of the plane.
