For this round, we did a loosely styled food shoot in our studio. As with all other tests, each camera shot a color checker for white balance metering. The files where both processed in Lightroom with no corrections other than white balance adjustment.
The Hasselblad H4D-40 image is the top and the Nikon D800 is on the bottom.
Couple things to note.
- There is a fairly substantial difference in the color and tone of the biscuits. The Hasselblad produced a richer and more accurate feel. Whereas the Nikon image is slightly washed out.
- The spray of flour in the upper right hand side of the image. The H4D-40 held the detail better.
- The white color of the egg was also more accurate with the Hasselblad.
I could go on with more, but in this example, the H4D clearly reproduced the scene better and more accurately.
