A 3.0" TFT LCD monitor provides bright and color-accurate playback and images can be saved to either a Compact Flash memory card or to a tethered computer via FireWire 800. Simple controls and an intuitive menu makes the back easy to navigate and both Adobe Lightroom and the proprietary Phocus software downloads are included with the digital back. File management applications such as DAC lens correction, Moire Removal Technology and Natural Color Solution control distortion and provide an "out-of-the-box" color profile system. Hasselblad 3FR files can also be opened with some limitations in Adobe Photoshop and Aperture, for example.
To complement its compatibility with the classic V system, the CFV-50c back features a stylish retro build and textured surface reminiscent of film magazines, however its state-of-the-art CMOS sensor converts virtually all V system cameras into high performance digital cameras.
