Yeah you read that title right. Hasselblad has announced the world’s first 39-Megapixel digital cameras. Say hello to the Hasselblad H2d-39. The camera is based off the Hasselblad H2 camera, but uses a true 39-Megapixel CCD censor.

Each file will be 78 megabytes in RAW format. The device will take CompactFlash cards, but good luck fitting more than a few pictures. For that they’ve created an external 80 GB hard drive you can tether to the H2D-39. That should allow you to squeeze in 1500 images.

Hasselblad will also be releasing a CFH-39 and CF-39. Both will be 39 megapixels as well.

Get full specs of the H2D-39, CFH-39, and CF-39.

The cameras should be available some time this quarter. Expect to drop around $40,000.
