The Hasselblad A5D Aerial cameras have three editions like A5D-40, A5D-50 and A5D-60 corresponding to three different resolutions such as 40, 50 and 60 megapixel. In addition to reduce weight for air photography, Hasselblad also integrated very much high technology in both hardware and software to serve the needs of high quality photography and all images captured are tagged with GPS coordinates.

The A5D aerial camera supports synchronised exposures to within 20 μs of simultaneous capture in a multiple camera set-up.

The Hasselblad Digital Camera image capture interface is via 1394B FireWire 800 or straight to CF card. Special mapping solutions may also want to take advantage of the LEMO connector for synchronised triggering or connection to a flight management system. The camera also has a lot of sensors and special chip to cater to the needs mapping, GPS coordinates, lens temperature, exposure settings, which are controlled through its Phocus software.

A medium format camera with 6 x 4.5cm basic, however the A5D-40 and A5D-60 version uses a CCD sensors, while A5D-50 to use a CMOS sensor. This sensor produces RAW 3FR 16bit images with an average size of 80MB, 65MB and 50MB.

The Hasselblad Digital Cameras ISO range is not too high, ISO ranges from 80 to 800 for A5D-60 version. Because the difference in sensor technology, so the A5D-50 should have many extra features compared to the two other versions. The slowest shutter speed is 32 seconds for A5D-60 and A5D-50, while 256 seconds for A5D-40. The A5D-50 ISO was also higher, reaching up to 6400 and compatible with Hasselblad H system lenses which was specially designed for the Air photography. This system has a diverse focal lens, ranging from 24mm to 300mm. The quality of the Hasselblad lens was well known for high-definition and ultra-low aberration as well as support for high-resolution sensors.

This is not the first time Hasselblad do this kind of work. In 1941, the company produced its first camera for the Swedish government, and that camera was for Air photography.
