The Best of Digital and video cameras
 
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 S2-P, the German answer
Another “giant” of the market, with a mould-breaking new 37.5 megapixel 30x45 mm sensor. It is identical in appearance to the S2, but includes an LCD sapphire glass monitoring screen. Price: €21,900.
