REVIEWED (started): Hasselblad H6D-100C

Get Hasselblad medium format at B&H Photo.

My review of the Hasselblad H6D-100C has started.

The first thing I noted was the inadequate depth of field at f/11 with the Hasselblad HC 50mm f/3.5 II. This challenge is inherent to the format size and resolution as f/11 on the 53.4 X 40.0mm sensor is equivalent to less than f/8 on 35mm full frame, though there appears to be more to it than just that. I discuss how to deal with the depth of field issue, since diffraction at f/16 results in unacceptable loss of image quality (overall contrast and micro contrast and sharpness), and f/16 is inadequate anyway:

I’ve begun posting examples from the Hasselblad HC 50mm f/3.5 II. The total image detail is astonishing, provided that excellent shot discipline is used along with focus stacking. It is slow going since focus stacking takes a lot of time for some images:

Includes images up to full 100-megapixel camera resolution. Viewing on the Apple iMac 5K strongly recommended for maximum enjoyment.

In terms of image quality, I deem f/3.5 useful only for focusing:

My insulation in my Sprinter van is working well: it got down to 19°F last night, but no colder than 35°F inside, which is perfect for sleeping. T

I forgot my speed skates, but the ice skating conditions are outstanding right now.
