The Best of Digital cameras (February 2011)
 
Hasselblad H3DII-50, a heavyweight
The arrival of this medium-format camera in the shops last summer was a milestone in the photography industry, for it was the first to reach a resolution of 50 megapixels, something quite inconceivable just a few months before. The Swedish firm Hasselblad has kept the design and performance of the previous version and added a new 36x48 mm CCD sensor, developed by Kodak, twice the size of the sensors in other full frame DSLRs. Price: €21,500.
 
Leica M9, with a titanium body
Leica fans should not miss out on this edition limited to 500 units of the M9 "Titanium". Envisaged by Walter da Silva, Audi's star designer, this camera is for them. With luxury details such as a protective cover in sapphire-crystal glass for the monitor or the LED illumination of the bright-line frames in the electronic viewfinder. It costs € 22,000.
