Head-2-Head Digital Camera Field Review: Hasselblad H3DII-31 vs. Nikon D3s vs. Canon EOS 5D Mark II
Headshots & Print QualityBy Ted Dillard
We also shot a sequence of headshots in our daylight strobe setup. Here are the files, below.
Based on what we’ve seen of the processing, you can probably guess that the first is the Nikon D3s and the second is the Hasselblad. The Canon EOS 5D Mk II is pointedly missing, we didn’t have a shot that was similar enough, in crop and lighting, to make a fair comparison, but you can take a look at my blog post to see those, if you want. These are processed in Adobe Camera RAW, and output-sharpened with Unsharp Mask.
There it is, a distilled illustration of the story of horsepower. The differences are there, in the pattern of her contact lens.
