Hasselblad H4D-50 Revisited, 6 Years Later, with Hi-Res Images in New Medium Format Section

See my Hasselblad mirrorless list.

I’ve launched my new medium format area, albeit without the Hasselblad X1D and Fujifilm GFX being available just yet. But they will get my intense concentration when they arrive.

All subscribers with “FULL” access automatically have access to the medium format area, as of Jan 20, 2017.

I went back and reprocessed all the images on these two pages of examples from the Hasselblad H4D-50 that I had shot back in October of 2010. I did so to refresh my impressions and to give myself one baseline data point, that is, using the latest version of Adobe Camera Raw and my current sharpening techniques, etc. The two pages:

Images at sizes sufficient to fill an iMac 5K screen, and some sufficient for an 8K display. They are really enjoyable to view on the iMac 5K in high-res.

It is my intention that all medium format work will be presented to at least fill the height of an 8K display, and even a step beyond (most of the width).

I was impressed at how the total sensor quality was apparent—this with a 6-year-old camera. It got me to wondering what kind of results will be forthcoming with both the Hasselblad X1D and Fujifilm GFX, what with 6 years of sensor advances and all-new lens designs for mirrorless—a ton of promise there.

As I understand it, the HCD lenses can be shot on the Fujifilm GFX using a lens adapter. But I’m hoping that the all-new mirrorless designs from both Hasselblad and Fujifilm will be a step up in micro contrast and resolving power.
