      Comments about Hasselblad H4D-31 Medium Format DSLR Camera with 80mm f/2.8 HC Lens:

      Great image quality and dynamic range. The sharpness of the lens is incredible. Best for studio or landscape. I wouldn't recommend it for event or any situations that requires speed. The LCD screen is terrible. You can't trust it to check for focus or quality of the image at all. I've just learned to only look a the screen to check composition and lighting. Working tethered would be best.

        Slow and Tempermental

              Comments about Hasselblad H4D-31 Medium Format DSLR Camera with 80mm f/2.8 HC Lens:

              Studio camera use, commercial product. Camera is slow and tempermental. Tethering cord wobbles and fails to maintain a connection to the computer station if not careful. Sync port is sloppy and does not hold the connector pin in firmly so before triggering camera one must press and hold it in. Viewfinder is very soft, it's guess work to know if you're in focus. Phocus software lags even on adequate machines. Pros? Great image quality if you can get the shot.

                        Love the ability to tether. This camera is a whole other animal from any other camera I have used. Love everything about it - even the need to use a tripod. You have to think about composition, and everything else before each shot instead of just shooting a ton of pictures that just clog up your hard drive. Software Phocus is awesome and easy to use.
