Same Sensor, Different Form Factors - The Hasselblad H6D-50c And The Hasselblad X1D-50c - Parkes - ACT - Australia - 20161206 @ 13:57
The Australian Hasselblad representatives came to the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra on December 6 2016, bringing with them the two latest cameras in the Hasselblad family; the Hasselblad H6D-50c Medium Format DSLR camera, and the Hasselblad X1D-50c mirrorless medium format camera.
We might start off with the same scene in front of us. And these two cameras share the same Sony 50MP sensor that records the light that is presented to it. However, the signal pathway between the two is occupied by the photographer and his/her tools (principally the camera, but many other accessories).
So many opportunities for variation. How fortunate and refreshing given a world that often seems to value automation and reproducibility.

Photography notes ...
The photograph was taken using the following hardware ...
- iPhone 7 Plus.
I acquired the photograph (4032 x 3024 pixels) handheld with an ISO of 125
, exposure time of 1/4 seconds, and an aperture of f/1.8. The iPhone flash was not used.
- I downloaded the photographs from my iPhone 7 Plus to the MacBook Air 11" using a lightning/USB cable and the iExplorer app (Macroplant).
- Sometimes I download the images taken on a shoot over WiFi using PhotoSync (touchbyte GmbH). Notably, I have found that iExplorer does not handle properly the images that have been edited using the native Apple iPhone "Photos" app (i.e., it will only transfer the original image, not the edited image).
- Following download, I viewed and sorted the photographs that were taken using XnViewMP (Pierre-e-Gougelet) or Lightroom (Adobe Systems Incorporated).
Lightroom - Imported the image into Lightroom.
Lightroom - Used the Spot Removal Tool cover up the distracting visual effect of bits of fluff on the tablecloth.
Lightroom - Made various lighting and color adjustments to the image.
Lightroom - Cropped the image to 16:9 aspect ratio
(3813 x 2145 pixels).
Lightroom - Exported the image to JPEG format with maximum quality.
PhotoSync - Copied the JPEG file to my iPad Mini for any final processing, review, enjoyment, and posting to social media.
