Hasselblad X1D: Dynamic Range

See my Hasselblad X1D wish list and Fujifilm GFX wish list.

I shot this series to evaluate dynamic range of the Hasselblad X1D, but it is also worth presenting to show the XCD 45mm f/3.5.

Hasselblad X1D

My main interest here is seeing just how well the very dark tones in the oak tree bark hold up with a maximum +100 shadow boost. What counts to me with a camera in difficult field conditions is how well an image holds up when worked hard during raw conversion (or in “post”). Because many real world images have very demanding dynamic range.

In my review of the Hasselblad X1D system:

Hasselblad X1D Aperture Series and Dynamic Range: Oak Tree Greenery

Includes ACR settings, RawDigger histogram for a maxed-out ETTR exposure, a reference frame without the maximum shadow boost, all from f/3.5 through f/12.
