Fun with the Hasselblad 907x

Some night and astro shots. The main challenge was focusing as there is no live-view gain that I could find in the settings of the 907x. Let me know if I missed something. I'm not 100% sold on the processing yet -- I'll likely do a bit more work on these files before they are final-final but I wanted to share nonetheless. XCD 30mm.
Focusing the 907X in near darkness is indeed a problem. At some point the magnified view just goes black.

More precisely, regarding the technical issue I have with the 45p: ut underexposes at F4 and if the exposure speed is faster than 1/800s.
Like if the central shutter wasn't able to cope with fast aperture when used at its wider aperture.
I suppose this is not normal and that the lens needs to be fixed 😥
Hi Vincent,

unfortunately I have exact the same problem with my XCD 45p and a X1D II.

Did you eventually solve the problem?

I don't think it's a hardware issue, because exposures up to 1/2000 are correct at f4 as long as you took one picture before at any other aperture and then setting it back to f4.

Thank you
Christian

Hi Christian,
I made a demo of the issue at my dealer that did replace the lens by a new one.
Problem solved as there clearly was an hardware issue with my 1st copy.
Your lens should also be replaced or repaired under warranty.

New member here -- Godfrey 'knows' me from another online photo forum, but I thought I'd finally join this one after prowling around for a number of months.

I bought my 907x in the fall of 2020 and have been loving it (of course I do wish that a firmware update would come out sometime, but what's a couple of years between friends eh?). I'll likely be posting photos that have been seen on the other photo forum that I'm still part of, so please don't hate on me for that. Plus, I tend to take a lot of photos of my wife -- maybe a homage to Harry Callahan? Hmm maybe! In any case, hope you don't get too tired of seeing her mug every so often -- okay, maybe a bit more often than that.

A few to start off with:

Hallo Vince! Good to see you here!
I enjoy your photos with the 907x (and all the other amusing cameras you've acquired...) regardless where or how often I see them! :D

I have been contact with Hasselblad and sent the lens in for repair. Gladly it is still under warranty.

I've been trying a couple of different lenses with the 907x -- the Nikon 28mm/3.5 PC lens with the Novoflex adapter seems to be a good match for the camera. Full coverage and plus you get the benefit of PC adjustments. The electronic shutter hasn't caused me too much grief, though under certain kinds of lighting conditions you could get banding.

Two with the Nikon 28 PC:

Just for fun, I wanted to see if I could rig up a pistol grip for the 907x. I sacrificed a TIHNC pistol grip -- works pretty well, though you have to attach the grip with a 1/4-20 screw and - as you can probably tell - works best with horizontal photos :)
