Well it’s official I’m in love!! haha The Hasselblad H4D 200mp is a cut above!! for the first time in my photographic life I’m actually whinging about file size being too big!! But GOD I love it!! I’m only whinging because I need to upgrade my MAC pro tower!! OK the file straight out of camera is 1.21gb simply insane the image attached below is a staggering 3.85gb on completion. I can keep going on about this camera all day but the results, engineering & quality of this camera speak for themselves they really do & I have had the honour thanks to CR Kennedy’s to be able to go out & test with it. I put the Hasselblad through some vigorous testing in all 3 modes single capture, multi shot & six shot mode all tethered to my laptop (I don’t think my laptop is the same after Sundays testing) haha… I personally thought that shooting tethered was going to be a pain in the arse to put it bluntly but it wasn’t it was a joy, having all the information straight away to look at was awesome & the big thing was not having to down load images off my CF cards this had saved me a massive amount of time. The 200mp has makes you think & makes you re-asses the way shoot especially when you have so much info at your disposal. Either contact Damon Rulack at CR Kennedy’s or Rob Gatto at Kayell Australia for a test drive you will not be disappointed I promise!!
Well I took the Hasselblad 200mp out for a test over the weekend & I must say I was not disappointed!! What an amazing bit of gear. I put the camera through it’s paces over the weekend moving water thick bush low light & it came through with flying colours. The quality & clarity of the file is what has me gobb smacked 1.12gb even before you attempt to do anything in photoshop yes you have read it right. Les Walkling has posted his finding on the 200mp on his website firstname.lastname@example.org it’s worth a read. The thing that makes this camera remarkable is that it’s actually 3 camera’s in one it shoots in 3 modes standard 50mp it’s also a multishot & the mother of all mothers 6 shot 200mp. I haven’t come up with just one word yet for the camera but i call it “Stupidly Insane”. This opposition has a long way to go!! I’ve attached a file from the shoot obviously not a RAW file but the tree in the shot is about 500 metres away & blown up to look at the detail in close was pin sharp.
Well finally this weekend i get to shoot the Hasseblad H4D 200ms & test it out. Can’t wait if its anything like the 50ms I’m in for a real treat!! After talking to Les Walkling about the 200ms I don’t think I’m going to be disappointed. I will post some test shots on Monday
