Hasselblad announces a firmware update that fine-tunes the H4D-60 to a whole new level with additional features and functionality.

With a major firmware update announced today, the Hasselblad H4D-60 is well on its way to becoming a legend. One-click focus check, bi-directional electronic spirit level, the ability to display camera grip information on the rear monitor, an improved high resolution LCD, Live Video for more efficient workflow and Schneider and Rollei support bring the H4D-60 to a whole new level of usability for the working photographer.

Here's a closer look at a few of the new features.

One-click focus check: With a single click, users can zoom in to 100% to check focus position and accuracy, a feature that's particularly helpful when shooting untethered. With the H4D-60's updated ability to utilize every pixel of resolution in its 3-inch monitor, one-click focus check's accuracy is further enhanced.

The new bi-directional (pitch and roll) digital spirit level puts an end to skewed horizons and off-angle straight edges. A single button press of the "i" button - or a customized user button - calls up the level on the viewfinder and the LCD for quick access to precise visual references.
