Tony Northrup debunks Hasselblad Medium format marketing

The Hasselblad X1D is definitely a great camera with huge “WOW” factor. It’s getting a lot of positive feedback from the press. To counterbalance all that we post that video from Tony Northrup. he certainly likes the camera too but he found some “weak spots” worth to be discussed. Like for example the exaggerated Hasselblad video marketing statement and depth of field myth.

Leica Q review at Dpreview

Bildschirmfoto 2016-03-23 um 20.39.19

Dpreview posted their full Leica Q review and writes:

The Leica Q is the most affordable full-frame Leica camera to date. Its 24MP sensor is good though not class-leading, and the fixed 28mm F1.7 Summilux lens is superb. The camera is built beautifully and responds rapidly. With the exception of a few software issues and some troublesome noise banding in pushed Raw files, the Leica Q is an excellent camera that you’ll want to bring along for documenting the world around you.

If you want to save some $ on the Leica Q get it grey imported. It’s $350 off with 3 year US seller warranty on eBay (Click here).
