Get Hasselblad medium format at B&H Photo.
To my knowledge, I have never seen a better performance in terms of dynamic range. Hasselblad claims approximately 15 stops, and this example finds nothing to discredit that claim. The moon is full captured and the near-black valley with it—amazing performance.
Includes image up to full camera resolution including a 50-megapixel version as well to give a sense of 100 vs 50 megapixels and the attendant quality and detail. Also included are Adobe Camera Raw settings.
I had to use every slider available in Adobe Camera Raw and still that was not enough—the moon had to be done as a separate conversion (same raw file), then masked in (it’s not quite right, my Photoshop skills are not up to speed on that sort of thing). I did so to show that the limit is not with the raw file. Adobe ought to add special capability for extreme dynamic range processing for scenes like this (checkbox “fix moon”).
