Size

The H6D is surprisingly small and light, even equipped with a lens.

Big orange button

This year is Hasselblad's 75th anniversary and the company got a little wild to celebrate; hence, the orange shutter button. I kinda like it.

Top controls

Because the entire back is taken up by the touchscreen, the controls you're familiar with from lower-end cameras sit on the top near the status LCD.

Built-in flash

It's a bit ironic that most full-frame cameras jettison the on-camera flash and it's considered an "unprofessional" feature, but the HDC series retains it. Even if you don't use it for serious work, it's nice to have in an emergency.

Back

There are a few controls near the big back thumb rest, including Hasselblad's True Focus system which keeps you from losing the correct focus area when performing focus-and-recompose.

Interface designed for touchscreen

Though the screen itself isn't that large, Hasselblad gives you nice big text.

Modes

In addition to traditional Program, Aperture- and Shutter-priority and Manual exposure modes, Hasselblad offers a variable-Program mode (Pv); this mode takes into account the current focal length to, for example, prevent situations where a too-slow shutter speed might cause shake.

Big viewfinder

The H6D uses the same viewfinder modules that the company has offered for a while, this eye-level model as well as a waist-level one.

Like most medium-format cameras, the sensor back is removable and can be used with other devices.

SLR

Fundamentally, the H6D and many other modern medium-format use the same technology as dSLRs; a mirror that flips up to shoot and down to reflect the image into an optical viewfinder.

Tonal range

I really like how much recoverable highlight detail you can get with the camera.

(Original in inset. Adjusted with Lightroom. Keep in mind that Hasselblad has its own raw-editing software, Phocus, which likely delivers better results, and that these won't look as good viewed on the typical sRGB display.)
