There is no internet in the mountains where I am shooting. Most days I descend for internet service once per day, but not all. Please be patient when subscribing.

Hasselblad X1D + Hasselblad XCD 45mm f/3.5 Aperture Series: Pomegranates on Picnic Table

See my Hasselblad X1D wish list.

This series assesses overall image quality as well as focus shift at medium range on a nicely saturated subject with overcast rainy skies.

I chose this setup for two reasons: (1) to see overall sensor quality, particularly the rich greens and reds, but also the dark rich blackish wood tones.

Hasselblad XCD 90mm f/3.2 Aperture Series: Pomegranates on Picnic Table

Includes image sizes up to 36 megapixels along with large crops, from f/3.5 through f/12.

I feel quite grumpy about the focus shift seen here: the whole premise of a medium format camera is superior image quality (which assumes perfect technical execution), but if the system places hurdles like focus shift in one’s path, it’s a chore instead of a joy.
