H2H ROUND-4: Headshots & Print Quality

View Official Scorecard

We also shot a sequence of headshots in our daylight strobe setup. Here are the files, below.


Nikon D3s - Processed in ACR, USM applied
Hasselblad H3DII-31 - Processed in ACR, USM applied


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.

Here’s a look at 100%.


Nikon D3s - 100% crop, processed in ACR with USM
Hasselblad H3DII-31 - 100% crop, processed in ACR with USM


There it is, a distilled illustration of the story of horsepower. The differences are there, in the pattern of her contact lens.
