Hasselblad colour tests are conclusive.

Comparison between colour reproduction of Hasselblad vs Canon images

The left image is from Hasselblad 16bit colour. Right side is Canon 10bit colour.

I recently acquired a long desired Hasselblad XD camera body. It’s a lovely thing. This is just a little announcement about colour - it’s lovely. Test shots below. These images are untreated straight out of the bodies. The Blad images are 50 Megapixel and 16bit colour rendering way more colour and depth. Also less opinionated than the Canon. Definitely an archival system. Downsides are with double the image size post production budgets rise. So If your reading this, I may have sent you here to see the difference. Please be aware that post budgets will almost double with this system.
