Hasselblad H3DII-31: First image(s)

A couple hot-pixels, a few faint horizontal lines, had to the Dremel down the RadioPopper to fit on the H3D, futzing around with Hasselblad's Phocus software to get it to output .DNG

Here's the first:

What's interesting is how ridiculously sharp the DNG outputs are. The 3FR (Hasselblad RAW files) come into Phocus as FFF (converted by Phocus) and contain all the proprietary information much like Nikon's NEF files. Unfortunately Hasselblad has not yet opened up their FFF files to be manipulated by Lr or PS directly. So an extra step is necessary to convert the FFF files into DNG so that I import into Lr which is my DAM.

Interestingly, you can directly import 3FR files into Lr. Again, it won't contain the proprietary Hasselblad info (moire removal, noise reduction, lens correction, CA removal, etc.).

Dynamic range? Check.

Uber-larger files? Check.
