July 3, 2007 – Hasselblad last week released an update to FlexColor, its image capture and processing software. Version 4.7 promises digital lens correction, improved sharpness and focusing, and a continued burst rate. FlexColor 4.7 is free for existing Hasselblad users and is currently available online.
The FlexColor software is included with Hasselblad's digital back cameras and scanners. The latest version corrects digital lens distortion and light falloff. FlexColor version 4.7 also improves sharpness by reducing vibration during handheld shooting.
FlexColor 4.7 also promises to improve shooting, particularly on the H3D 48mm DSLR, with a continued fast burst rate with the latest generation of CF memory cards. The H3D's Ultra-Focus function has also been expanded to correct for optical distortion. All Hasselblad H- and HxD-camera bodies will automatically be updated with the latest firmware once users connect their camera to FlexColor via FireWire.
"The Hasselblad FlexColor software for image capture and processing continues to set new standards for digital photography," states the company website. "The software has always been, and still is, free of charge for Hasselblad users. You are continually updated with new features and better quality and workflow solutions, increasing the value of your Hasselblad photo-equipment."
