Hasselblad, known for its high-end cameras, and for its devotion to producing the highest-resolution cameras on the market, is rumored to be joining the likes of Canon and Nikon in phasing out their DSLRs – more commonly known as the H-series. 

This news comes from Capture Integration, a third-party vendor, which recently announced on its blog that it received official notice of the discontinuation of the entire Hasselblad H system lineup, including the Hasselblad H6D 100c. This move further reduces the options available in the medium format DSLR market, with Pentax and Ricoh left standing as the key remaining players. Hasselblad, however, has not yet confirmed this news. We at Digital Camera World have reached out for comment.
