Hasselblad H6D-100C
Hasselblad HC 120mm f/4 II

Examples: Lundy Canyon

These examples shot in the Lundy Canyon with the Hasselblad H6D-100C.

Because depth of field is quite limited with the Hasselblad HC 120mm f/4 II on the Hasselblad H6D-100C, many of the images utilize focus stacking.

What makes the quality possible in the images that follow is the extremely high pixel quality from the Hasselblad H6D-100C—time and again I am struck by the incredible amount of detail with outstanding pixel quality. Shoot the H6D as ISO 64 with proper ETTR exposure and the resulting raw-file image quality is like putty in the hand for post processing. It is night and day better compared to say, a Sony A7R III— no “brittle” pixels to foil artistic intent.
