Hasselblad X1D: Long Exposures

See my Hasselblad X1D wish list.

This 5+ minute exposure pushes the camera hard:

  • No long exposure noise reduction was used for the 323 second exposure.
  • Image is nearly two stops underexposed, but also pushed by +0.85 stops + Shadow boost.
  • White balance of 10500°K, which relies heavily on the blue channel.

Hasselblad X1D: Long Exposure (5+ minutes) with Push (Storm-Swollen Creek)

Includes image sizes up to 36 megapixels along with crops, RawDigger histograms, and discussion of Adobe Camera Raw processing settings.

I’m really enjoying the sensor quality of the Hasselblad X1D (sensor means sensor plus processing pipeline), but boy does an f/3.5 lens suck at dusk—nothing but a red haze in Live View so I had to use a 5000 lumen Betty TL2 flashlight to illuminate the creekbed while focusing.
