3.15 PHOCUS OVERVIEW
Phocus
Phocus is the Capture Processing and File Management
application aimed primarily at Hasselblad 3F file handling.
Phocus is available for both Mac and Windows.
Professional Image Quality
Phocus combines Hasselblad Natural Colour Solution
(HNCS) with Digital Auto Correction (DAC) to provide high
digital image quality in the images you create. With Phocus,
the moiré effect that can occur on even extremely high
resolution images is effectively removed automatically and
directly on the raw data, leaving the image quality intact and
saves time in post production work. Tethered shooting is
efficient with Phocus Remote camera controls providing a
number of remote functions. For example remote focusing,
live view, aperture and exposure time controls.
H6D
Phocus Mobile
Phocus Mobile is available for iPhone®, iPad® and
iPod Touch®. It enables you to connect wireless to
a computer running Phocus and to remotely browse
your high-resolution RAW, JPEG and TIFF images. This
provides a solution for working with clients in the
studio, enabling each person to view images on an
individual iOS device, rather than all gathering around
a single computer. Phocus Mobile also allows users to
remotely operate and trigger a tethered camera, giving
control of many parameters, all neatly presented in a
virtual camera display. This feature is very convenient
for remote control of the camera when it’s located in a
difficult to access position.
Phocus Mobile is available for free download in the
Apple App Store. www.apple.com.

3.16 BATTERY AND BATTERY GRIP
Rechargeable battery grip
The environmentally approved Battery grip Li-ion (3043357)
is the standard power source for the H6D camera. The H6D
requires a power supply for all actions as there is no mechanical
reserve facility. It is therefore advisable to keep a spare
rechargeable battery grip at hand. As is the case with most
batteries, problems might be encountered when used in very

3.17 BATTERY CHARGER
The battery charger is supplied with a number of plug
attachments to suit various types of domestic electrical sockets
available worldwide. Other types of sockets will require a
domestic socket converter.
Attach the chosen plug by sliding it into position. Removal is by
the reverse procedure.
Note!
The Battery charger BCH-2 (3053572) is designed for use
with Battery grip Li-ion 3200 (3043357) but can also be used
together with the Battery grip rechargeable 7.2V Li-Ion 2900
(3043356) intended for H5D use.
CHARGE THE BATTERY
1 With the battery removed from the camera, insert the jack
plug from the battery charger into the socket on the battery
grip (1).
2 Insert the battery charger into a standard (100–240V~
/50–60 Hz) domestic socket.

RECHARGEABLE BATTERY GRIP SPECIFICATION
LI-ION/ Battery Charger 3053572 BCH-2
– Precautions and General
The battery should have a usable service life of around
400 recharge/discharge cycles.
The battery should be charged for approximately 6 hours
before first time use.
Connect the battery grip to the camera correctly.
The battery must be charged at room temperature.
Keep the protective cover in place when not in use. (Short
circuiting across keys in a pocket, for example, could cause a
fire risk).
Maximum battery capacity is reached only after the battery
has been charged and discharged several times.
Avoid frequent full discharges (a full discharge is signalled
by the appearance of the Replace battery warning on
the grip display). As the battery is a Li-ion type, it has no
memory effect of practical importance and therefore frequent
recharges will cause no problems such as loss of capacity
or poor performance. It is therefore better policy to
recharge the battery at very regular intervals, regardless
of use.
Do not immerse the battery grip in liquids.
Remove the battery if you intend to store the camera
for some while as it will eventually become completely
drained, even though the camera is turned off.
Do not short circuit the jack plug.
Do not incinerate the battery grip.
Please recycle or discard in an environmentally approved
manner.
Use indoors only (protect against moisture).
Do not alter the charger in any way other than changing
the plug attachment.
The battery has an integrated fuel gauge capability that
supports the Replace Battery and Battery Status functions
on the grip display. As with most Li-ion batteries, this capability
should be occasionally calibrated, depending on
how much the battery is used. To do this, leave the camera
on (or use it), until the “Replace Battery” warning appears.
Then, recharge the battery for 6 hours. This will improve
the accuracy of the measurements.
Note!
You can save battery consumption by changing the Display Off /
Sleep / Power Off settings as well as the brightness settings of
the display.
When removing a battery from the charger and immediately
replacing it with another, allow a few seconds to
elapse so that the charger can automatically reset for the
next charging procedure.
It is perfectly normal for the battery to become warm
when being charged.
A slight temporary loss of battery performance might
be noticed at very high or low temperatures. Take the
appropriate measures if this is the case.
If you do not intend to use the battery for a while, it is best
to store it at room temperature with an approximate 30%
to 40% charge.

BATTERY LIFE AND BATTERY WARNING
Battery life is dependent on a number of variable factors
and therefore cannot be exactly predicted. If the camera is
left in the active state instead of Display Off or Sleep modes
for long periods, for example, then the battery will become
exhausted much faster. A low camera battery state is
indicated by a symbol on the grip display, in the viewfinder as
well as on the sensor unit display. In addition, an audible
signal sounds. When the battery is almost completely
exhausted, a warning message “Replace battery” will
appear on the grip display.
The Battery will be exhausted faster if you use Live View and
Video Recording often.
Quick visual check
Low battery warning
3.18 TEMPERATURE WARNING
If you take several captures within a short period of time, the
processor in the Camera will produce more heat. This,
particularly in combination with high ambient temperature,
can result in noise in the image files. To prevent this, the sensor
unit displays a warning icon when the temperature rises.
At 60 °C a warning dialogue appears notifying that the
sensor unit is temporarily shutting down to allow the unit to
cool. The Sensor Unit will be warm quickly if you use Live View
and Video Recording often.

The camera is only able to read and write to storage media
that have been formatted correctly. New cards sometimes
have no formatting, or you might want to convert a card that
is currently using a format that the camera cannot read. In
either case, you must reformat both CFast cards and SD cards
in the sensor unit for H6D use.
There are two ways to format cards. Use either the format
button on the grip (quickest), or the sensor unit menu.
FORMAT BUTTON
Press the Format button (A) on the camera grip. It is purposely
recessed to avoid unintentional use, so use a ballpoint pen

USER GUIDE
To Use
AE-L BUTTON
The AE-L button (A) has two main functions that can be
incorporated in various working methods involving exposure
locking. It also has an extra function for the flash measure
capability (see AE-L section under Flash). The AE-L button can:
A
Lock an EV setting in manual and automatic modes
When the button is pressed, the light metering facility is locked
to the EV setting at that moment. An L (=locked) symbol
appears between the shutter speed and the aperture indication
on the grip display and viewfinder display to confirm the status.
Press the AE-L button again to unlock (a toggle function).
In the locked setting, the aperture and shutter speed become
interlocked. In this way, a new aperture/shutter combination
that still represents the same EV, can be rapidly chosen. For
example, if the shutter is set to 1/125s and the aperture to
f/8 and are locked together, you can access new EV-equivalent
combinations of, for example, 1/30s a f/16 or 1/500s at f/4
just by moving the front scroll wheel.
In practice this means you can, for example, in auto mode
position the metering area (spot setting) over an area in the
subject that you determine to be equivalent to a mid-grey and
lock it with the AE-L button. You can then recompose the picture
with the metering zone positioned over an area much brighter
or darker while still retaining the original exposure setting and
choose a new combination of aperture and shutter speed
settings.
Be used as a Zone System placement button
The AE-L button also allows the spot metering function to
make zone placements. When the AE-L button is pressed, the
metered area is saved as a mid-grey (Zone 5). When the spot
area is placed over another part of the scene, the new area is
compared to the saved area and the difference can be read off
the scale seen in the viewfinder. For example, in a landscape
situation you could meter the foreground, lock the reading with
the AE-L button (thereby locking that area to be reproduced as
the equivalent to a mid grey 18%), point the camera at some
rocks to see by how much darker they are compared to the
foreground by the EV difference read off the scale.
If you have chosen Spot together with Zone display as well
as one of the automatic modes A, S, P or Pv, point the spot
marking at an area that you decide should be a Zone 5 and click
the AE-L button. The meter will now display different parts of
the subject as zone values in the viewfinder display, instead of
EV deviations, as you move the spot marking over the subject.
(Included are Lo and Hi to signify areas beyond the range of the
sensor).
H6D
Grip Display View
Lock symbol L.
Alternatively you can choose to re-classify an area as another
zone and then check the rest of the subject to see how other
areas fall on the zone scale. Do this by following the above
procedure and then turning the rear scroll wheel until you see
the new desired zone value in the viewfinder display. You will
also see the new exposure that will now produce that new
zone. For example, you might have measured a rock at zone
5 but wish to make it darker. By moving the rear scroll wheel
you could re-classify it as zone 4. You will then be able to see,
for example, whether white clouds are now falling within the
exposure range by their new zone classification.
Alternatively, you can also pre set the initial zone reading in
order to save time and effort where there is no freely available
zone 5 subject for light measuring. For example, you might be on
a sandy beach where you know that sand is normally classified
as zone 6. You can pre-programme the zone placement by
holding down the AE-L button while choosing the new zone value
and turning the front scroll wheel until zone 6 appears. All new
placements will then be zone 6.

Emphasizes the central section of the focusing screen

Spot
The sensitive area is equivalent to approximately
2.5% of the image area (the central spot on the
viewfinder screen). Any parts of the image outside of
this area will not affect the exposure reading. This
provides a very accurate measurement of specific
tones. Typically used in the zone system and similar
light measuring situations where maximum control
is required. Also excellent for tonal comparison
measurements. The spot mode can display zones
instead of EV's in the viewfinder display.

Time
T stopped down = T Fully open
(using True Exposure)
T stopped down > T Fully open
(without True Exposure)
True Exposure is an HC/HCD lens function that allows the
shutter speed to remain unaffected when stopping down. This
effect is perhaps not so commonly understood as it is restricted
specifically to integral lens shutters as opposed to focal plane
shutters.
When a lens is stopped down, the effective shutter speed
becomes longer, consequently affecting the set exposure.
At slow shutter speeds the effect is minimal but at faster
speeds, 1/500s, the effect becomes clearly visible. Automatic
compensatory measures in speed setting adjustments are
employed.
As compensation can only be put into effect where speeds
can be adjusted, this prevents the possibility of adjusting
the fastest speed of 1/800s or 1/1000, depending on lens
H6D
type. To counter this, compensatory adjustments are therefore
made to the aperture instead to retain the set exposure. This
compensation is not always required and when using flash
or strobe as the main light source it is actually undesirable
because compensation will result in underexposure. Therefore,
when using flash/strobe as the main light source, you should
set True Exposure to OFF in Main Menu > Camera Settings >
Exposure > True Exposure in the Camera Sensor Unit Display.

USER GUIDE
To Use
FLASH AND STROBE SETTINGS
The H6D can be used together with most manual flash units.
However, to make use of a TTL automatic function, it must
ensured that the flash unit is compatible with the SCA 3002
system. Connection is either by the PC socket or by the hot
shoe (see warning below).
The viewfinder houses an integral fill-flash with a guide number
of 12 and features OTF/TTL flash control. This flash is capable
of providing enough illumination for many fill flash functions
outdoors as well as simple indoor shots at shorter distances.
General information
When using the A or S setting together with flash, the exposure
requirements of the camera will dominate which might produce
slow shutter speeds indoors, for example, requiring the use of
a tripod. If P or Pv is selected instead, a shutter speed of 1/60
or faster is automatically chosen by the camera enabling the
camera to be hand held.
When using flash close up or when using larger aperture
settings, remember that the flash unit’s output has a specific
minimum duration which might still be too great for correct
exposure. Read the back’s output specifications for further
information regarding any potential restrictions.
WARNING!
Only flash units specially adapted for use with the H6D can be
connected to the hot shoe on the camera.
WARNING!
Do not attempt to connect a flash unit, dedicated for use with
other camera brands, to the hot shoe. The flash unit or the
camera could be damaged.
Note!
If using flash or strobe as the main light source and 1/800s or
1/1000s shutter speed, remember to turn off the True Exposure
function.
As with all strobe or studio flash use, very particular attention
should be taken to ensure correct connections and general
handling practice. Potential dangers might increase when
cameras are also connected to electronic peripherals
(computers and lighting backs) and should diminish when IR and
similar wireless flash release devices are used.
Victor Hasselblad AB cannot accept any responsibility what so
ever for accidents that might occur or damage caused when
Hasselblad equipment is used in combination with third party
backs of any description.
It is possible to use the flash metering capability with external
flash units of all kinds (TTL flashes must be set to Manual
mode).
Rear sync is a useful feature used either for effect or to produce
a more natural look when combining long exposures involving
light trails and flash.
When using suitable dedicated backs (compatible with SCA3002
compatible flash unit regarding the two functions, exposure
compensation and shutter sync, is via the grip. The flash
measure function can be used for flash units that are not SCA
3002 compatible or for SCA 3002 compatible backs at manual
setting.
To change the balance between flash output and camera
exposure requirements to produce a variety of effects, use the
exposure compensation function. For various long exposure
effects use the sync function.

FOCUSING DISTANCE CALCULATION
There are two distance scales (in feet and metres) visible
through the window on the upper part of the lens barrel.
The focusing distance is read off the chosen scale from the
central lens index (A).
A
STOP DOWN / DEPTH-OF-FIELD PREVIEW
A visual depth-of-field preview can be made by pressing the
STOP DOWN button (B) while viewing the image in the viewfinder.
Depth-of-field is calculated as follows:
1 Focus the lens as required.
2 Make an exposure reading (auto or manual) and note the
aperture setting.
3 Find the markings on either side of the central index that
correspond to the chosen aperture.
4 From these two markings, read off on the required lens
distance scale the two corresponding distances.
5 The depth-of-field (at that particular aperture and focus
setting) is the area included between these two distances.
B
In the example to the right, the focusing distance is set at
nearly 3m (three metres). At an aperture of f/22, the depth-offield would therefore extend from just over 2m to approximately
4.5m.
Note!
The depth-of-field is not absolute. Perception of it depends on
several factors and so it should be seen only as a rough guide.

FOCUS ASSIST
The camera features a LED focus assist. Two arrowheads are
displayed to the right of the viewfinder display (except for lenses
with a maximum aperture of f/6.7 or smaller). The arrowheads
provides confirmation of a precision focus setting and are a
useful aid when making a setting with eyesight only.
Lens focus setting too far beyond
the distance of the subject framed
by the central section in the
viewfinder.
Manual focus setting
When the left arrowhead appears by itself, the focus setting
is too far beyond the chosen distance (the area framed within
the central zone in the viewfinder). When the right arrowhead
appears alone it means the focus setting is too close. Focus
is correct when both arrowheads appear together. If the focus
cannot be established, then both arrowheads flash.
Focus setting too close for the
distance of the subject framed by
the central section in the viewfinder.
Focus setting correct.
Automatic focus setting
Focus is correct when both arrowheads are visible together.
Focus is incorrect if only one arrowhead is visible. If the focus
cannot be established, then both arrowheads flash.
Note!
The autofocus range on the HC 4/120 Macro lens can be
limited by a specific setting on the camera allowing for near
range, far range or full range. This information is displayed
on the grip display together with that particular lens, in the
Sensor Unit Display and in the Viewfinder Display. Further
information can be found in the “H-system Lenses & H-system
Lens Accessories” booklet that accompanies each lens. The
booklet can also be downloaded from the Hasselblad website.
Additionally see the following note below regarding HCD lenses.
Info!
For users who prefer manual focus control but would like the
benefits of autofocus, one method is to set the AE-L button (or
any customizable button) to AF (Single) drive. The main subject
can then be centred and the AE-L pressed, to ensure correct
focus. The camera reverts immediately to manual focus control
when the button is released. Therefore, you can recompose
the picture without having to maintain pressure on the release
button in order to retain the newly automatically made focus
setting (AF-T can also be used).
Note!
HCD lenses were formulated for use with the smaller size
Sensors in the H-series, resulting in a reduced coverage for the
larger sensors used in some models. So, if you use HCD
Lenses, be aware of the restrictions (vignetting and diminished
quality at the edges). As notification of this situation, an auto
crop function is employed and an HCD crop icon appears on
the right hand side of the viewfinder display when an HCD lens
is fitted. When in Phocus, however, the auto crop function can be
turned off in Preferences if you wish.
Info!
The True Focus function can also be combined with other
autofocus modes for specific situations.
Note!
The autofocus function is not possible with certain combinations
of lenses and accessories. However, a warning is displayed
which disappears after confirmation.
Note!
Lens corrections can be applied when captures are imported
into Phocus. Guided by the information in the meta data
included with each individual capture, the DAC (digital lens
correction) tool uses lens model specific calculations by default
to adjust for chromatic aberration, distortion and vignetting. Not
only model specifications but also capture parameters are taken
into consideration for analysis. This extremely capable
refinement of captures should not be overlooked when
processing files! See Phocus user manual for details.

MANUAL FOCUS
A
There is both a Manual focus mode setting and a manual
override capability.
B
In Manual focus mode, focusing is carried out by rotating the
focus ring on the lens. The focus setting remains until changed
as with a conventional non-autofocus lens. This means that
pressing the shutter release button will not activate a focus
setting change as it does in autofocus. To change back to
autofocus, press the AF button (B) and select AF-S, AF-C or AF-T.
MANUAL OVERRIDE IN AUTOFOCUS MODE
Manual override is always possible in automatic focus mode
without any need to make a new setting. Just rotate the focusing
ring in the conventional manner. As the lens barrel does not
rotate in autofocus mode, you can hold the focusing ring for
instant manual adjustments. However, to retain the new manual
focus adjustments, you must maintain the pressure on the
shutter release button. You can instantly return to the automatic
focusing mode by releasing the pressure on the shutter release
button first and then pressing the release button halfway again.
The instant manual override function produces a convenient way
of working. You can take advantage of autofocus while retaining
an instantly adjustable manual focus check if preferred for pinpoint accuracy without making any changes in the settings.

The operative range is from EV 1 to EV 19 at ISO 100.
The point of focus is determined according to the vertical and
horizontal areas (see illustration to the right) within the central
rectangular zone on the focusing screen.
True Focus is classified as an autofocus function and is normally
activated by its own button on the grip. See later section.

SINGLE SHOT FOCUS
At Single Shot setting (AF S), the shutter release will be blocked
until the camera finds the optimum focus setting. This ensures
that no captures are made that are not finely focused. However,
this delay is normally only a fraction of a second in good lighting
conditions with a clear focusing pattern.
AF-S Single Shot Mode
In this mode the lens will focus at one distance and will remain
focused at that distance while pressure remains on the shutter
release button. In this way, you can focus on a nearby object,
temporarily positioned within the focusing zone on the viewing
screen and then without releasing pressure on the shutter
release button, recompose knowing that the focus remains on
the object chosen even though it is now outside the focusing
zone. Releasing the pressure on the shutter release button and
pressing again half way would now change the focus setting to
the distance of the object within the focusing zone.
See Manual Override in Autofocus Mode for a useful way of
working with manual and autofocus settings in a combined
manner.
CONTINUOUS FOCUS
At Continuous setting (AF C), the shutter can be released rapidly
before the lens is focused in order to capture a split second
shot (in Single Shot, a capture cannot be made until the camera
has had time to focus). However, the camera will continue to
focus if a moving subject is within the focusing zone or if you
recompose, even though the shutter release button is halfpressed.
AF-C Continuous Mode
One method to use this feature when photographing in fast
changing situations is to keep the shutter release button
pressed down. The lens focus continuously, and by momentarily
releasing the pressure on the shutter release and then
immediately pressing again, you minimize the amount of time
needed for the lens to check focus ensuring a split second shot
with optimum focus.

CAMERA TRUE FOCUS
The True Focus setting (AF-T) is generally used in specific
circumstances to automatically correct for camera angle and
focus setting discrepancies, but it can also be combined with
other autofocus settings.
AF-T True Focus Mode
To use True Focus correctly, a few important points should be
studied in order to obtain a full understanding of how and when
to use it. Basically, there are four variables to pay attention to:
(a) proximity of camera to subject,
(b) focal length of lens,
(c) aperture setting and
(d) movement of camera and/or subject after setting.
The closer you remain to the ideal situation with regard to these
variables, the more noticeable the effect of True Focus will be.
●● The closer you are to the subject, the worse the original
problem becomes. Consequently, the need for True Focus
solution becomes greater and its application thereby
becomes more noticeable.
●● Short focal length (wide angle) lenses naturally decrease
camera to subject distances and therefore, following
the point in (a), produce a greater need for True Focus
adjustments. For lenses 80mm or longer, True Focus will
not produce better results than a normal AF drive.
●● Smaller aperture increase the depth of field and
therefore would lessen the need for a True Focus
solution. However, smaller apertures produce a different
visual effect, so True Focus therefore allows the
exploitation of the shallow depth of field (produced by
larger apertures) without the fear of unwanted focus
restrictions.
●● The calculations involved in True Focus use, amongst
other things, camera to subject distances to calculate
the required amount of adjustment. It therefore follows
that if the camera or the subject moves after the
initial setting has been made, the calculations will not
be applicable anymore. So, to ensure the optimum
correction, both the photographer and the subject should
restrict movement as much as possible. Please note that
with some lenses (particularly longer length lenses) just
a few centimetres movement can essentially ruin the
result.
True Focus can be used with longer lenses, smaller apertures
but the further you come from situations similar to the ideal
as described above, the less the effect will be until it has no
visible effect at all. Please remember that although True Focus
can noticeably improve a demanding shoot it will only work
effectively in the specific circumstances it was designed for.

USER GUIDE
To Use
TRUE FOCUS AND ABSOLUTE POSITION LOCK
A
The obvious situation that would most benefit from using True
Focus would be a fashion shoot with a fairly wide angle lens at
a large aperture setting and where the central area of the image
is clothing while retaining focus on the model’s face. Ideally a
fairly controlled and static flow should be planned. A change
of pose by the model should take place only after captures.
The photographer must also resist crouching down, or leaning
forwards or backwards too much before capture.
With the lens at its widest aperture setting, a normal autofocus
setting is made on the model’s face (A), and the camera focus
locked. The composition is then changed to include more of the
clothing (B), but the locked focus setting now extends beyond
the model’s face at (B) according to the laws of geometry. This
will naturally result in an image where much of the subject
closest to the camera and the model’s face will be unsharp.
Solutions involving manual focus, focus lock and resetting of
multi-point sensors are distracting the workflow and prone to
error. Making a True Focus setting at (A) will ensure that focus is
automatically adjusted in accordance with the change of camera
angle.

True Focus uses yaw rate technology and by way of the Absolute
Position Lock (APL) processor, logs camera movement as the
basis for an extremely rapid compensated focus reset without
any shutter lag. The Camera firmware further perfects the focus
using the precise data retrieval system found on all HC/HCD
lenses.
A
A normal autofocus setting is made on the model’s face and
locked.
The focus setting is approximately 2.5m.
B
When the camera is rotated back down, B, the locked focusing
distance of 2.5m, according to the laws of geometry, extends
beyond a perpendicular line drawn down from the face, creating
unsharpness.
If a True Focus setting instead of a normal autofocus setting is
now made at A and the composition is changed back to B again,
the camera will automatically calculate and adjust the focus of
2.5m to approximately 2.4m, which is the actual perpendicular
distance. The model’s face remains sharp.

To Use
TRUE FOCUS AND CAMERA HANDLING
To obtain the maximum benefit from True Focus work within the
requirements of the system. This might need a little practice but
it will improve the accuracy of the measurements and thereby
provide better results.
1 Remain as still as possible when making the first True Focus
measurement and wait for the audio signal or ready light to
show green again before continuing. This will not only speed
up the process but also increase accuracy.
2 When recomposing the shot stay in the same position as
closely as possible. That is, try to avoid moving your head
or body forwards or backwards as this will move the camera
away from the measured position.
In the upper example to the right, the photographer has swung
the camera from the first measurement to recompose the shot
as normal. But as you can see that the camera has now moved
away from the original position.
Incorrect rotation of camera away from original position.
The lower example illustrates essentially the same situation
except this time the camera is rotated around its central axis,
rather than swung. Practice shows that this method retains the
original position more accurately and therefore results in better
focusing accuracy.
Correct rotation of camera around it´s own centre.
FOCUS CHECKING
In browse mode or after a capture you can either double tap
on the Sensor Unit Display to zoom in to 100% or spread two
fingers apart to zoom in. To zoom out you can double tap again

BRACKETING FUNCTION
The bracketing function provides an automatic series of captures, one at the
standard exposure setting (Manual or Auto)
and the others with predetermined deviations in EV from the
standard exposure. This is particularly useful for images containing a very
wide tonal range, for example. First you make an assessment concerning
the number of extra frames required, the order in which they should be
taken, and by how much the EV deviation there should be and the setting
made accordingly. The first metered exposure (Manual or Auto) is the EV that
determines the calculations for the bracketing sequence.
Note the difference in operation between Single and Continuous
drive settings:
•
At the Single setting you must press the shutter release button
separately for every separate capture until the sequence is finished.
•
At the Continuous setting you can either maintain the pressure on
the button to take all frames without stopping or you can release the
pressure on the button and press again to continue to the end of the
sequence without losing any frames within the set sequence.
Note!
When Bracketing is activated, a Bracketing Icon is displayed on most
screens.

The camera is only able to read and write to storage media
that have been formatted correctly. New cards sometimes
have no formatting, or you might want to convert a card that
is currently using a format that the camera cannot read. In
either case, you must reformat both CFast cards and SD cards
in the sensor unit for H6D use.
There are two ways to format cards. The quickest way is to
use the Format card button on the grip but if you prefer, you
can also use the menu on the sensor unit.
FORMAT BUTTON
Press the Format button (A) on the camera grip. It is purposely
recessed to avoid unintentional use, so use a ballpoint pen
or similar. A dialogue is displayed on the sensor unit for
confirmation. It is also possible to press the format button with
a hard press with a fingertip.

Histogram Exposure
The Histogram provides a graph that indicates the total number
of pixels at each brightness level, with brightness in range from
black on the left to white on the right. It is a valuable tool for
evaluating captures.
A well exposed shot usually has a full range of levels, while
underexposed and overexposed Captures tend to show levels
concentrated at the left or right part of the scale.
The histogram is only an indicator that should be interpreted.
There are several situations in which a bad histogram will match
an exposure that could be perfect for the intended effect.
Study the Histogram examples and the explanations below.
Underexposure
Histogram display concentrated on the left with few pixels
elsewhere indicates a likely underexposure. Many details will be
lost in the shadows.
Even exposure
Histogram display spread across the full range indicates a likely
good exposure. There may still be a few pixels at the extremes,
indicating a few spectral highlights and saturated shadows, but
this is often normal in a good exposure.
Overexposure
Histogram display concentrated on the right with few pixels
elsewhere indicates a likely overexposure. Many details will be
lost in the highlights.

5.38 MULTI-SHOT – 4-SHOT AND 6-SHOT
Multi-Shot is a function only available in the H6D-400c MS
camera. In addition to regular 1-shot captures, this camera
can also make 4-shot and 6-shot captures to increase image
resolution and colour fidelity as well as reducing the risk of
moiré.
Multi Shot is only available when the camera is tethered to
Phocus.
4-Shot
In this mode, the camera will make four captures with a
1-pixel sensor shift between each image to capture full colour
information in each pixel. The images are then automatically
combined in Phocus to produce a 100 MPixel image with
stunning quality as no interpolation is required to make the full
100 MPixel RGB file.
6-Shot
In this mode, the camera adds two more captures to the
sequence above with 1/2-pixel sensor shift. This will generate
image data that can be interpolated to an image with 400
MPixel resolution, producing images with the highest resolution
and smoothest colour gradations available.
Notes!
• In order to use Multi-Shot, the camera must be tethered to
Phocus.
• The camera set-up must be extremely stable, making sure
that no camera movement will ruin the image.
• The lighting used must also be extremely stable to make
sure all images have the same lighting.

moiré effect that can occur on even extremely high resolution
images is effectively removed automatically and directly on
the raw data, leaving the image quality intact and saves time
in post production work. Tethered shooting is efficient with
Phocus Remote camera controls providing a number of remote
functions. For example remote focusing, live view, aperture and
exposure time controls.

PHOCUS MOBILE
Phocus Mobile is available for iPhone®, iPad® and iPod Touch®.
It enables you to connect wireless to a computer running
Phocus and to remotely browse your high-resolution RAW, JPEG
and TIFF images. This provides a solution for working with
clients in the studio, enabling each person to view images on
an individual iOS device, rather than all gathering around a
single computer. Phocus Mobile also allows users to remotely
operate and trigger a tethered camera, giving control of many
parameters, all neatly presented in a virtual camera display.
This feature is very convenient for remote control of the camera
when it’s located in a difficult to access position.
Any File from Anywhere
Phocus allows you to view image files and work in the same
intuitive processing environment, no matter where your files are
coming from. You can browse, handle, adjust, and process all
kinds of RAW and non-RAW formats.
Phocus supports RAW files from more than 150 cameras (On
Mac OS-X platforms only), including Canon, Nikon, Leica, Sony,
Fuji, Olympus **.
The most common file formats can be processed for example
TIFF, JPEG, DNG, and PNG. Some processing tools have no
function on non-Hasselblad files.
* Phocus Mobile is available for free download in the Apple App
Store.
** Full list available at http://www.apple.com/aperture/specs/

USER GUIDE
To Use
PHOCUS AND HASSELBLAD CAPTURE FILES
The H6D can capture files and store them as Hasselblad RAW
format files or Hasselblad RAW + JPEG formats simultaneously.
Hasselblad RAW files are initially stored in the 3FR format which
is a proprietary Hasselblad format for in-camera storage
of captures. A 3FR file contains the complete digitized raw
image exactly as it was captured by the camera. 3FR information
requires further computing power (typically by way of Phocus) to
obtain complete development. If developed in Phocus,
3FR files become Hasselblad 3F files – denoted by each file now
bearing the suffix “.fff”. If developed by other RAW processors,
the 3FR files are not converted to 3F but can be exported
directly to TIFF, PSD according to requirements.
However, when working tethered – which necessitates using
Phocus – 3FR files are automatically processed and stored in
the background on a computer appearing as 3F files on the hard
disk ready for selective adjustment and export. 3FR files
stored on a Memory card can be processed to completion using:
●●
●●
●●
●●
Hasselblad Phocus
Adobe Camera Raw
Adobe Lightroom
Apple Aperture
Capture files can be stored as 3FR files (from a CFast or SD
card) for later processing in Phocus or other software, or they
can be stored as 3F files (as a result of tethered shooting or
3FR files processed and converted in Phocus). In all cases if you
keep the original 3FR/3F files, you will also retain the possibility
of reprocessing them in the future in later versions of Phocus
or other software to take advantage of eventual improvements
and developments.
Mixed formats
Phocus can also process most other capture formats, generic
and proprietary. This means you can include other formats in
your normal Phocus workflow if you choose. Or if you prefer,
you can include Hasselblad files in Adobe / Apple workflows as
stated above.
Video file support
Phocus can process and export RAW video files from H6D-50c
and 100c to Cinema DNG and Apple ProRes format for use in
video editing software. Video files in MP4 format can also be
previewed in Phocus.
H6D
Note!
Using Phocus is the most comprehensive method and provides
the highest image quality. The Phocus and Adobe methods can
produce almost identical results (in most cases, but not all)
regarding RAW conversion so it is a matter of personal choice
regarding which method would best suit your preferred ways of
working. Alternatively you can use Apple Aperture though the
benefits of DAC and HNCS, will be lost in this case.

This is particularly useful when using polarizing or graduated
filters where the orientation is critical.

VIEW CAMERA OPERATION
The Sensor Unit of the H6D camera can be detached and
used on other types of cameras, e.g. View Cameras, with
an H System magazine interface. This will enable the use of
additional functionality such as extended Tilt and Shift using
lenses with large image circle.
The current firmware of the H6D camera enables the following
modes of operation:
1 Flash Sync Mode
2 Pinhole Mode
Power Connection
For more detailed information about Technical Camera use,
please see the separate document TCC, “Technical Camera
Options” available for download from www.hasselblad.com.
A
POWER SOLUTION
When the Sensor Unit is detached from the H6D camera body,
external power will have to be provided to the DC input (A). The
input voltage range is 12 to 24 VDC.
A good external power solution is a Laptop Powerbank. This has
normally an adjustable output voltage and sufficient power for
extended use. One model that has been tested and qualified to
work is the “XT-20000QC2 Power Bank” from XTPower. See
“https://www.xtpower.de”.
External Power solutions
Hasselblad will on request and free of charge supply a DC
Cable between the Power Bank and the Camera (Item number
3054180). Please contact your dealer.
An alternative power source for US customers is the “GBTIGER
50000mAh Power Bank” (model: B01N1SHRB1) available from
Amazon.com. If using the supplied cables and tips an additional
3.5mm x 1.35mm male plug to 5.5mm x 2.1mm female socket
DC power cable will be required.
XT-20000QC2
Note!
When using power banks other than the XT-20000QC2, please
make sure that the minimum output power before automatic
shut-off is equal to or lower than 2.5W. A higher value can turn
off the battery when the camera goes to standby mode.
Note!
If power from USB is activated, an external power source like the
above is still required as USB cannot supply full power for the
camera.

Magazine Settings Lock
All settings can be locked to avoid inadvertent changes. To
change the settings, slide the settings lock (see illustration) to

the settings lock to the left (see symbol on magazine) again to
secure the new settings.
Data bus Interface
Data interface between magazine and camera. Ensure the
contacts are kept clean and protected from damage. Keep
the protective cover on when the magazine is being stored or
transported.
Battery
The magazine uses a battery to retain information and settings
when unattached from the camera. When attached to the
camera body, the magazine takes its power requirements
from the camera batteries. The magazine battery will normally
be effective for 1-2 years depending on use (off camera
illumination, for example). When the battery is in a very low
condition, (approx. 1 month of use left), a low battery symbol
appears on the magazine LCD as a warning. The magazine will
continue to function with no battery power left as long as it
remains attached to the camera body. However, when detached,
the settings will not be stored.
Battery Replacement
Release the film holder by folding out the film holder key and
rotating it 90° in a counter-clockwise direction. Withdraw the
film holder completely. On the bottom plate on the inside of the
film magazine housing you will find a slotted circular battery
cover. Insert a small coin or similar into the slot and rotate the
cover about 20° in a counter-clockwise direction. The cover
will be freed and the battery can be removed. Replace with
a fresh CR2032 / 3V lithium (or equivalent) battery. Observe
the polarity and ensure the positive (+) face is uppermost and
replace the cover (ensure the retaining lugs are inserted in the
battery compartment slots), locking it into place by rotating
it in a clockwise direction until it stops. If you inadvertently
H6D
insert the battery incorrectly, the film magazine will not be
damaged though it will not function. Try to avoid touching the
surface of the battery with your bare fingers as sweat residue
can decrease the electrical conductivity of the battery casing
and might cause corrosion. After battery replacement, the
magazine’s parameters return to the default settings (Bar code,
120, Data-on, Count up).

Attach and Remove the Magazine
You cannot remove a magazine from the camera body if the
magazine dark slide is not in place, (when the magazine dark
slide indicator on the magazine shows white). Neither can you
withdraw the magazine dark slide when the magazine is not
attached to the camera. Both these restrictions therefore
prevent accidental film loss caused by fogging.
Attachment
Position the magazine retention groove onto the magazine
support on the camera body ensuring that they are correctly
positioned. Swing the magazine towards the camera body and
firmly press into place with a click. If there is resistance, the
magazine retaining catch on the camera has probably been
inadvertently released. In that case, push the release button
again to reset the catch. You can attach and remove the
magazine with or without the film holder in place. If you just
want to change to a new film, you can remove and reload the
film holder without having to remove the whole magazine.
Removal
Ensure that the dark slide indicator on the magazine shows red
(signifying that the dark slide is closed). Firstly push the lever
of the magazine release button to the right (fig. 4/1) and while
maintaining that position press the centre of the button firmly
inwards towards the camera body (fig. 4/2) to finally release the
magazine.
●● Ensure you press on the centre of the button, not on the
lever.
●● You cannot remove a magazine if the dark slide is not
closed.
●● If the film holder is inadvertently removed mid-film,
then exposed frames will naturally be lost due to light
fogging. However, if the film holder is reinserted, the
film will automatically be advanced by three frames to
position fresh unexposed film. The film counter will also
correspondingly add on three frames to the original
number recorded before the film holder was removed.

Film Speed Setting / Bar code
The film speed (ISO / ASA) can be set automatically or manually.
Automatic setting uses a Bar code (only some films have
this feature, notably Fujifilm). This is the default setting.
Film settings (ISO / film length) are automatic only if the
magazine is set at Bar code automatic. That is, a bar coded
film cannot override a manual film speed setting but a manual
setting can override the film speed of a bar coded film.
Films without a bar code must have their speed set manually.
A manual setting must also be made if you want to override the
speed setting of a bar coded film.
EXAMPLE
To access Manual setting:
1 Ensure the magazine settings lock is in the unlocked
position.
2 Press the
button until a figure (or bar code symbol)
appears together with ISO.
3 Press either the
or the
button to reach the required
setting.
4 The new setting will be saved automatically after a time out
of five seconds.
5 Return the LCD settings lock to the locked position.
Note!
If you use both standard and bar coded films (or overridden
bar coded films), check that you have changed the
settings accordingly.
Film Length / Number of Frames
Both 120 and 220 films can be used. 120 film will produce 8
(for use with ‘half length’ 120 films only) or 16 frames and 220
film will produce 32 frames. If the film has a bar code, then film
length setting (and film speed setting) is automatic. The LCD will
automatically show the bar code symbol and the appropriate film
length. (Note that film speed can be overridden with bar coded
films, but not film length).

Film Loading
The film magazine can be loaded either on or off the camera.
Regularly check the interior of the magazine and remove dust,
particles or any scraps of paper from previous rolls of film. Load
and unload film magazines away from direct light sources.
1. Fold out the film holder key and turn it counter-clockwise
90° A. Withdraw the film holder completely.
2. Place an empty take-up spool in the upper spool holder
by placing one end over the fixed stud in the holder and
the other end underneath the sprung spool retaining arm.
Rotate the spool a little if necessary until it clicks into
position.
3. Completely remove the retaining paper band from a new roll
of film and place it in the lower spool holder. See diagram
for correct orientation. Ensure you do not place the film
spool the wrong way around!
4. Pull 8–10 cm (3–4 in.) of paper backing from the film roll
and insert the tongue of the backing paper into the slot
in the take-up spool. Turn the spool one complete turn to
ensure the tongue is firmly held in place by the overlying
paper backing.
5. Re-insert the film holder into the main body of the film
magazine ensuring the correct orientation. Press firmly
inwards towards the magazine and pay particular attention
to see that both sides are level with the magazine body
before turning the film holder key clockwise 90° to lock the
film holder in place and fold the key back into its stored
position B. You might find that increased pressure on the
left hand side of the film holder will more easily ensure
a positive and correct positioning in the magazine. If the
camera is active or in standby mode the film will be wound
automatically by the camera to position the first frame.
Beeper
The beeper sounds immediately after last-but-one frame has
been exposed. This function can be turned off in Options.

Unloading a film
Remove the film holder in the same manner as when loading
a film. Grip the exposed roll of film firmly and remove. Ensure
the paper backing is wound tightly and that it is sealed with the
band properly (the band may need to be moistened to activate
the adhesive depending on type). Store exposed films away from
strong light sources and contact with sharp objects. Move the
remaining empty spool to the take-up spool compartment.

Camera is deactivated
The camera can be affected by a
discharge of electricity. This can happen
when the area around the control buttons
on the grip accidentally touches a
conductive cord or material connected to
earth.
Press the ON - OFF button on the grip to
activate the camera.
This can deactivate the camera and does
not cause any damage.
Wrong language
If the sensor unit has been set to a
language you don’t understand (on a
rented camera, for example), you can
navigate to your preferred language by
following the actions and appearance in
the illustrations here.
See chapter 8.2 on page 197 to Change
Language On Sensor Unit From Unknown
Language.
Dark or coloured spots or lines in your
images
Dirt or particles on the surface of the
camera lens
See chapter “8.3 Clean the Lens Glass”
on page 198.
Dirt or particles on the surface of the
sensor unit’s infrared (IR) filter
See “8.4 Clean the Sensor Unit Filter” on
page 199.
Rapidly taken captures make heavy
demands on the processor in the sensor
unit which in turn produces heat. This
can in combination with high ambient
temperature result in noise in the image
files.
Let the sensor unit cool down for at least
20 minutes.
Temperature warning icon appears
At ca. 60 °C a warning dialogue
appears notifying that the sensor unit is
temporarily shutting down to allow the
sensor unit to cool.
Time and date settings on the sensor unit
does not work
Time and date settings on the sensor
unit (which are included with files and
folder labels) are updated automatically
through a USB3/Phocus connection.
These settings are retained for about
two consecutive weeks by a small
rechargeable cell that is automatically
recharged by the main battery or USB3
with regular use.
Leave the sensor unit ON for 12 hours.
Camera shuts down even if battery status
seems good
The charge counter in the battery has
come out of sync and needs to be reset

ERROR MESSAGES
If any error message is displayed on the Sensor Unit
Display or on the Camera Grip Display, follow these
instructions.
Caution!
Be careful when you attach and remove the
components to, and from, the camera. This will help
prevent damage to the data-bus connections.

BATTERY RESET
If the camera suddenly shuts down even if battery
status seem OK, one possible cause could be that the
battery charge counter has come out of sync. Follow
the procedure below to synchronize.
1 Charge the battery to full capacity (charge between
4-12 hours). Remember to plug the charger into
the battery first, then plug the charger into the
outlet.
2 Once charged remove the battery from the charger.
Do not attach the battery to the camera.
3 Without the battery attached, simultaneously press
and hold the Menu and WB button on the grip. The
menu button is the top button on the right with the
video icon and the three white lines.
4 Continue holding these two buttons and attach
the battery to the camera. If you hear a beeping
sound, then the re-programming of the battery is
successful, otherwise repeat steps 2 and 3 until
the sound is heard.
5 Turn on the camera and confirm battery status has
been reset to 100%.
6 Camera and battery are now ready for use.

CLEAN THE SENSOR UNIT FILTER
Caution!
Be careful when you attach/detach the components to/from
the camera. This will help prevent damage to the data bus
connections.
Caution!
When you remove the sensor unit, keep foreign objects away
from the camera opening. The camera opening is very sensitive.
This will help prevent damage to the equipment.
1 Remove USB 3 cable if connected.
2 Rotate the sensor unit release button to the right.
3 Maintain the position and press the centre of the button
firmly inwards towards the camera body (X) to finally release
the magazine.
4 Carefully clean the outside surface of IR filter by using clean
compressed air.
Caution!
If you use canned compressed air to clean the glass of IR filter,
read the instructions very carefully before use. This will help
prevent damage to the filter.
If compressed air did not remove all the problems on the filter,
use an E-wipe. Do as follows:
1 Tear at the notch to break seal.
2 Remove an E-wipe from the package and fold the tissue to
match the width of the IR filter.
3 Apply firm pressure using two or three fingers at the edge of
the wipe to ensure an even, firm contact with filter surface.
4 Wipe the surface in one unbroken motion.
Caution!
Do not try to remove the glass IR filter from the front of the
sensor (due to dust or similar). This can cause damage to the
equipment. Always contact your local Hasselblad Authorized
Service Centre.
Contact your local Hasselblad Authorized Service Centre.
Note!
Do not use same side of the E-wipe twice as you will be likely to
reapply particles removed in the first pass.
1 Attach the sensor unit again to the camera immediately after
cleaning.
2 Capture a number of images.
3 Inspect the images.
If you still see spots on your images, you may have dust either
on the inside of the IR filter or on the CMOS itself. Do as
