Hasselblad is now offering a CFV39 back for "V" series cameras.  It appears to be a modified CF39 adapted to "V"series.  It will give a 29 MP square and 39 MP rectangular image.  I guess Hasselblad hasn't totally given up on it's "legacy" systems.

Thank you. I got it. It is true. I wonder if this back can be used both horizontal and vertical in rectangular.
 I'm affraid, I'm going to have a hell of an anticlimax. Hope not. Fingers crossed.

I guess that Hasselblad marketing decided that there was still some money to be made from the "V" series.  In addition to the hardware, they also added digital lens corrections for the Zeiss lenses.  I think the CFV39 is a logical move as the chances for a "full frame" square format back are nil. I should mention that the "lens factor" of 1.5 is unchanged from the CFVII when using the square format.

I wonder why one would go for this instead of the ordinary CF model that can adapt to several different cameras... is it because of the lack of some sort of cable or similar benefit?

Hi Julius

Hasselblad has had numerous requests for a higher resolution back using the same housing as the CFV. The magazine's housing is based on the traditional V system cameras with black leatherette and chrome trim. It offers cable free operation with the 500 series and modified 202, 203, 205 series bodies and F/FE lenses.

If a photographer does have multiple platforms then the CFII series digital magazine would be a better option.

I remember years ago, Bronica came with a 6X7 camera to compete with Mamiya's RB and RZ. Ths camera was an all-time eye level camera. Some people said it was a good thing because it saved some weight. Good thing for an all ready heavy format camera! Well, it turned out to be a flop. Very few people bought it. Nobody wanted a camera this big to be handle as a lighter 645. Because it wasn't light! Eventually Bronica stopped production.
Hasselblad's decision to come with a rectangular sensor for the V cameras that doesn't rotate seems to me a total non-sense.  If Hasselblad thinks that we photographers are such suckers for beauty, that we will fall for a stupid design just because it looks good on our cameras, I have news for them. My savings still are for a Phase One or Sinar or Leaf.
Hasselblad deserves an award. "Prankster of the decade"

This is fantastic; it is great to see Hasselblad keeping the V series alive.  Woot for the 205 with the 110.

Is the modification to use with the 203/205 cameras the same one that is already done, disabling the film back auto ISO capabilities?

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, Henry but the quote below was taken from the Hasselblad website

" Not recommended for critical work together with SWC models and ArcBody due to optical incompatibility. Some earlier SWC models need slight modification for battery mounting reasons. "

we have just to wait for Photokina 2010 to get a FF  square sensor  

a question to Paul Claesson or David Grover :   Longest shutter speed: 64 seconds  , then why Hasselblad is not doing a firmware to get 64 seconds on H3D bodies too ??

Can be interesting
only the price will make it "survive"
I wonder what Hasselblad will ask for it
My guess: 15.000
But if they do not go below 10.000, they will not sell much I'm afraid...

Yes, this is the same modification to the 202/203/205 bodies which allowed the FE lenses to be used.


USING A MODIFIED 200 SERIES CAMERA WITH A CFV DIGITAL BACK
                       
Please note the following practical points when using a 200 series camera modified for cable free
use with CFV digital backs:
 
The cable-free solution only functions in conjunction with either:  
F and FE lenses or CF/CFi/CFE lenses set in F-mode
 
CF lenses can still be used in C-mode but a flash sync cable must be connected between the PC-
socket on the lens and the CFV digital back (see CFV manual for details).
Please note that using CF lenses in C-mode therefore does not require any modification to the
camera, only a flash sync cable connection.
 
One consequence of the modification is that there is no data transfer of ISO setting from film
magazine or digital back. This means that the ISO dial on E magazines (and the zone system dial in
the case of older TCC magazines) will no longer function when connected to a modified camera body.
However, ISO settings can easily be made on the camera body instead.
 
When using a CFV digital back, an ISO setting has to be made both on the body and on the back.  
 
Auto bracketing is not possible with a modified 203FE and CFV digital magazine, as the capture rate  
  of the CFV back is slower than the capture rate of the 203FE would be with film.
