Canberra With The H6D-100


Spending some time in Canberra with the H6D-100 lately and at the end of the day what better place to test out the one hundred million pixies than on our nations parliament. The export on this file was done using Phocus 3.1 and it was shot on one of the old series 35-90, which still holds up very nicely. Pretty much straight out of the camera with a bit of clarity/sharpen.

More On The H6D-100

After a three day workshop in Albury and finally getting some prints done from the H6D-100 it can be said that at A2 the files are extremely detailed. Colour is typically well rendered Hasselblad and edge sharpness is amazing with the 80mm lens.

All good on the file front. Be aware and this is a warning to all those looking to invest in one hundred million pixels- if you want speed you need Cfast. Without the faster cards its frustratingly slow, and why wouldn’t it be with such big files. Slow to shoot, slow to down load, buy Cfast, after all its going to be the cheapest part of the camera.

Primary colours are amazing, reds and yellows especially, but it is the vast brightness range that makes the difference, if you are a pro this could save your bacon on a job.


Hasselblad H6D-100 Files

I only had a short time to run around Newtown yesterday and shoot some street stuff. I tried to pick things with lots of detail and get a sense of how the sensor renders color. Check them out however there is no way you can get an idea of how big and versatile these files are until you actually work with them.

I think using them is initially going to be a little slow until I update, at this point the PC is handling them better than the Mac but that is possibly because of the extra RAM packed into the PC.

The color is spot on accurate and gives you so many options for grading plus the massive files allow for some aggressive cropping if needed.

Next big test will be the night shoot and long exposures. I did notice that it actually goes down to 64 ISO which will be handy for blurring movement.
