The X1D offers the best long exposure mode of any camera I have ever used: it just works right:
- No dark frame needed, which cuts exposure time in half. I’d like to sleep rather than wait twice as long and/or be able to make twice as many night exposures.
- There are no artificial time limit as with every other camera on the market. Set it to aperture priority, and if the X1D thinks an hour is needed, away it goes—perfect.
- The option lets one start shooting, walk away, and abort with a possibly good exposure if time presses.
Well done, Hasselblad! Every other brand I’ve used makes long exposures a hassle.
