The camera can also shoot in lossless compressed Hasselblad 3FR RAW, TIFF, JPEG and Full HD Video. There’s also the capability to save in RAW to one card and in format to the other thanks to its dual slots.
At launch, there will be two autofocus lenses available, which are set at 45mm and 90mm lengths with an aperture of f/3.5 and f/3.2 and a price tag of $2295 and $2695 respectively.
