X1D pics.

I have found my camera. Absolutely loving this thing. Not at all fast, but the little bit of required slowing down is really perfect. I'm finally settling in with it, a very different camera than anything else I've ever worked with.





X1D | 45/3.5

Yes from me too ... keep them coming please! I was over looking at the review on petapixel of the camera and some nice images there as well.

I am quite loving it Dave. Some initial confusion with the read outs has been sorted through, and I have an ND filter on the way which should help also. The crop modes are really well done, I am really appreciating the ability to switch on the fly so easily. I am doing 90% squares, but Xpan and 4x5 are in the mix. Some adapters are also in my future, for the Pentax 67 100 macro lens (which does 1:1) and for the M glass. It seems many Leica lenses will or will nearly cover the square frame on the X1d.

Keep an eye on FB as well if you’re there.

Nice to see some results! How is the battery life with it?

I’ve got three batteries, have recharged two of them once, and been probably put about 125-150 shots through it. I suspect battery life will improve as they get broken in. They arrive needing a 6 hour charge before use. Recharge is faster, tho I’ve not kept tabs on how long.

Good to see you're getting it dialed in. FYI per their road map Hasselblad should have a 21 f/4 out in the first half of this year. The 30 f/3.5 that's currently available seems to be well liked as well. Don't know how much you plan on using native vs adapted glass though.

I still find that camera quite interesting. I would love to get one for landscape work, but I really just don't need a medium format digital body right now. I'm enjoying the M10 for my digital work but this does seem like an appealing system!

The 21 will be my friend I believe. Looking to use this in the woods like the SWC.

The adaptability is what initially caught my eye, but after getting one in my hand recently on a visit to Montreal I was hooked.

A few more from the X1D with the 45mm lens. Should finally get some good shooting time with it this coming week. After a brief attempt at Spring we are back to winter here.

Wow, that blue bus picture is incredible looking.

Would really like one of these, maybe in a few years when I can grab one used.

Thanks!. The files are incredible. I'm still getting the hang of processing them, very different than the M9 ones I'm used to.

Bob,

The workflow most of us with that sensor have found that initially opening the image in Phocus with basic processing gives best results, and then I use both LR and PS for final processing depending on the look I am after.

Long exposures with ND filters are stunning!!! I think you will love them and do not hesitate to use 10 and 15 stop filters!

Thanks for the confirmation that where I’ve stumbled with this is best practice! Phocus to start, and export as a tiff that I bring into PS. I have some ND here already, but once the leaves are out I’ll have plenty of long exposure fun in the woods with this. Hopefully the 21mm will be out soon.

The things I’ve put in paper are remarkably snappy. Hoping to get something soon to splurge with a full size print to see what this thing is at native size. I have one image of an auto paint shop window covered with overspray that might be it, but will decide after this trip.

Dang, wish I was up that way to shoot too.

I will send you an email on some updates of what we are up to. So many possibilities with this sensor! Only drawback is I can't seem to go back to the smaller sensors because the images we are using now are absolutely huge in final print size. But I am enjoying shooting the 503cxi alongside and comparing the differences. Two different approaches and both have their own sweet spots for final images.

Post some more! You are putting a smile on my face!

Will get some more up this coming week. I’m shooting this alongside the 667W on this trip. With the Ricoh GR for the rain and a Nikon 28Ti for nighttime wandering. The Ricoh took a fall on the last trip and the flash is no more, but I forgot about sending it in.

Settling in well with the camera. Was out on a pre-dawn walk with an old friend through Chinatown in NYC Thursday morning. High ISO performance is very good, with only a few bright pixels in extreme shadows. Barley any need for noise reduction. These two at 6400.





Then onto Pine Bush NY Saturday for some bright sun.





This trip has finally gotten me very comfortable with the camera. Have a few settings I'd like to tweak on the rear screen, but wouldn't mind if I left it as is. And I will need to come up with some good gloves that will let me work the touchscreen by this coming fall.

Continuing to settle in with the camera, and liking it more by the day.

All with the 45mm, still waiting for the 21 to be released, but that will be soon according to Hasselblad US.

Out again today for a bit after the rain stopped.


South Kirby, VT.


Lyndonville, VT


Waterford, VT

Shot this alongside the 810 this time. A really nice pair to have in the car.

Like the separation between the trees and background in this-it's very 3 dimensional. I'm sure the larger sensor helps with that somewhat.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you produce with the 21 once it ships.

Thanks! On my way home via Waterford today. Very circuitous but managed a few sheets of 810 in some very nice light. This spot made me think I need some Portra 400 on hand.

Iíve read that the 21s land in the US Monday or Tuesday, then get shipped out. Might have it in hand this week. Just in time too, the leaves are about open.

21 in hand. Initial impressions:

1) Focus ring is much less damped than the 45.
2) Very good balance on the camera.
3) It is really wide!

A few quickly processed files from the Town Forest today. Practicing for a day out at a friends sugar woods on Tuesday. Very different than working with the M9 files from the woods. Will maybe dive into Phocus a bit more and see what that may bring to these.











I'm going to need to do some white balance work when in the woods.

Had a great morning out at a friends sugarbush over in Cabot this morning with the 21mm. Just what I was hoping it would do:

No. Been working on a book project which is all B&W film, so was in the darkroom for a while, then onto scans and now PS at this point. I will be doing some dummy printing for that project this week, so should finally get a few X1D things on paper also. Once the college starts back up I think I am going to get to run a full size print on their new big printer, to see what this really does. Will also try scaling one up to the max the printer can do, if they'll let me...
