Hasselblad X1D
Hasselblad XCD 120mm f/3.5

Examples: Mules and Horses

Examples from the Tuolumne Meadows corral.

Mule of a different color

Been to the desert on a mule with no name. Well, at least it’s Tuolumne Meadows where it’s not too hot. To confine grass-loving animals in a dusty enclosure all day long not so nice, but these mules (and one horse) seemed to be just fine.

This image showcases both the high resolving power and contrast of the Hasselblad XCD 120mm f/3.5 along with the stellar image quality of the Hasselblad X1D. With contrast control, the high contrast of the XCD 120/3.5 shines even in this backlit situation.

While this image looks good on a regular display, the contrast of an iMac 5K delivers an outstanding visual impact.
