    Hasselblad X2D coming soon to a divorce near you

    Sure. But you'd have thought they'd have learnt their lesson. They certainly have claimed to...

    Hasselblad X2D coming soon to a divorce near you

    same here. My initial reaction was TakeMyMoney but my enthusiasm has cooled, for now. Although IBIS is a great addition, and the flippy screen is an improvement (but as useful as a chocolate teapot in vertical orientation), the top screen seems utterly pointless, losing the mode dial is...

    Oh dear, looks like my Xpan kit is going on eBay to pay for this….

    Reasons for MF in 2021

    I generally find an inverse correlation between how much I like a photo and how many "likes" it gets on Flickr.

    Hasselblad: Phocus Or Lightroom

    Thanks for the lesson. I've got a rough idea how this stuff works. The difference in clipping indication between the camera and Phocus is huge (at least 0.5EV). So to take full advantage of the range I try to ETTR, but with the X1D this is involves far more guesswork and crossed fingers than...

    X1DII / DxO PhotoLab

    Not sure if this has already been mentioned, but DxO PhotoLap 4.3 now supports Hasselblad X1DII files. From a quick look, the results are very good. I don't know if they had any support from Hasselblad for colour profile, certainly they use their own lens modules, but anyway really nice to...

    Hasselblad: Phocus Or Lightroom

    "An even better solution is to expose without blowing highlights." or just shoot JPEG.... I didn't spend 7+K to not maximise dynamic range.

    Hasselblad: Phocus Or Lightroom

    Phocus is awful at highlight recovery, it turns sky cyan. Lightroom is much better. Also Phocus gradient tool is primitive, almost impossible to fine tune. But to my eyes Phocus gives better colour (X1D) and colour is the reason I bought this expensive camera. I also significantly prefer...

    X1DII Screen Colour Accuracy

    I'm not sure why I never noticed this before, but I've just realised that the colours I see on the X1DII screen are quite significantly different to those I see in 3FR files imported into Phocus. The view on the camera is quite flattering. I think, probably, that what I'm seeing in Phocus is...

    Got my GFX100s today.

    Good Lord. Heaven.... exists!!!!! or maybe... "..and I was thinking this could be Heaven or this could be Hell". :cool:

    What's Hasselblad Been Up To?

    I'd just like an X1DIII body with an orientable screen, some kind of dust protector (there was this "dark slide" concept H may have heard about), and for heaven's sakes please please please a hyperfocal indicator on the distance scale. So basically take usability from excellent to...

    Raw histograms and raw converters

    As mentioned above, CaptureOne shows clipping based on output rather than input. So, if your current recipe profile happens to be set to sRGB you’ll see a more clipping than if it is set to ProPhoto, say. Personally I find C1’s clipping indicators to be rather pessimistic and not too reliable...

    Medium Format and Coffee

    I suppose using a Nespresso machine is a bit like admitting I also shoot Micro Four Thirds?

    X1DII EVF brightness

    Thanks - I've always wondered about the eyecup. Does anybody know of any alternatives? On other cameras I've always used deeper eyecups where available.
