Long Exposures (Hasselblad XCD 38/2.5)

This page presents various long exposures at ISO 64 on the Hasselblad X2D 100C.

Focusing in dim light with the Hasselblad X2D is quite good. The X2D appears to be doing active noise reduction in magnified Live View, which helps with focusing.

The X2D apparently lacks a long exposure noise reduction option (nothing in camera, nothing in manual with firmware zzz), which leads to hot pixels with some images, even at ISO 64,

Aspen, late dusk, 38/2.5

Outstanding quality with this 45-second exposure. Few or no hot pixels.
