Phase One


Phase One H10 digital back for Hasselblad cameras






Phase One H10 Digital Back for Hasselblad cameras

Phase One Digital back in good condition. Serial no. BU000160.

Comes with a WireFire cable and lens cable.

Sensor looks perfect, no scratches, no dirt.

Compatible with Hasselblad 500C, 500CM, EL, EL/M and many other cameras.

Sold as pictured. 

Note: Payment must be made within 24-48 hours. I reserve the right to re-list the item and sell it to another bidder in case of non-payment.

So, why Phase One? Why digital back?

Here are some reasons why people use medium format digital backs:

1) Higher size of the sensor generally means better quality. Bigger sensor mean lower noise, no JPEG artifacts, better color reproduction and smoother gradients.

Even though zoomed-out image taken by the regular camera looks OK, upon closer inspection color noise and JPEG artifacts appear.


Same object photographed with the digital back shows stunning gradients and almost no color noise.

2) All digital back shoot in raw format (formats differ from manufacturer to manufacturer, yet they are still raw). That gives photographer a unique opportunity to go back in time and "fix" exposition, color balance and many other issues.

This image is underexposed due to photographer's error.

If photographer attempts to recover details in the underexposed areas, he won't be able to do that, because they are lost. Result would be similar to this:

However, with digital back's raw format, photographer can "go back in time" and "reshoot" same object with the different exposure.

Here is the same image with underexposed areas lightened up:

Even though the underexposed areas show some grain, the image is very fixable and would work for the most purposes.

Here is another example. This photograph as shot with the incorrect color balance (photo on the left). After manipulating the image for at least half-an-hour, image is more or less repaired. Notice how much color information is lost and how weird the repaired image looks.

And this is the same exact images in raw format repaired in second simply by dragging a color balance slider:

So, these are among the many reasons why people switch to medium format digital backs.

I hope that this information would help you to make a purchase decision.

Note: this "crush course" is extremely simplified and the end results depend on many factors, notwithstanding the person behind the viewfinder.
