Hasselblad’s new 100-megapixel medium-format digicam system is able to really beautiful pictures and completely incapable of taking pictures video. This can be a photographer’s digicam, for these fortunate sufficient to nonetheless be photographers, with out the demanding video workload tacked on to each job. If that is you—and you’ve got loads of money to spare—that is the digicam you need.The CFV 100C is a brand new 100-megapixel digital again that can pair with each Hasselblad’s 907X digital physique (the smallest medium format digicam available on the market) and older 501c Hasselblads. Throw in an optionally available grip and you’ve got a medium-format digital digicam system that can be utilized like an outdated Hasselblad movie digicam (taking pictures waist stage), as a extra versatile digital model utilizing the flip display, or for extra conventional SLR-style taking pictures with the grip.Second to NoneLike most photographers, I wouldn’t have a Hasselblad 501c simply mendacity about, so I did all my testing utilizing the 907X with the CFV 100C. This combo is extremely compact, snug to shoot with at each waist stage and eye stage, plus straightforward to hold round. The 907X portion of the rig is skinny, little greater than one thing that connects an XCD sequence lens to the 100C sensor again. The brains and sensor of the bundle are within the new CFV 100C digital again.The 100-megapixel medium-format sensor is similar one Hasselblad used within the X2D (7/10, WIRED Evaluate), and it stays mind-blowing. Not solely is the decision extraordinarily detailed, however the RAW information seize 15 stops of dynamic vary and 16-bit coloration, providing a few of the greatest coloration rendering I’ve ever seen in a digital sensor. It is troublesome to quantify precisely what it’s that makes these information particular, however I not often felt the necessity to edit them. They already look the way in which I need. Naturally, this might be as much as photographic model and private style, however for me no less than, Hasselblad’s coloration and tone rendering—even in JPG information—is second to none.{Photograph}: Scott GilbertsonThey are big information, although. Be forewarned that the RAW information are round 200 megabytes every, and even JPGs could be up within the excessive 80-MB vary. Just like the X2D, this digicam features a 1-terabyte drive and a CFexpress card slot to broaden that storage capability much more.The sensor and storage are the identical because the DSLR-style X2D, however the 907X 100C has nothing else in widespread. The X2D seems like utilizing a high-resolution Nikon. Mix that with the shortage of video options—which I would favor to have in a extra DSLR type issue—and the X2D fell flat for me. The 907X with the 100C is the polar reverse, regardless of sharing the identical sensor. That is the digicam Hasselblad followers have been dreaming of. It is all the pieces that made the movie Hasselblads particular, with a digital soul. It may not final so long as the movie cameras (electronics being finicky, in spite of everything), however in each different approach, it carries that Hasselblad custom.That is to not say there aren’t fashionable enhancements right here. Autofocus, a spot the place even latest Hasselblads have struggled, is significantly better. There’s face detection (no, not eye, simply face), which works fairly effectively in all settings however very low mild. I would favor eye detection, however this works in most conditions. I choose guide focusing more often than not.
