Hasselblad HC overview

  • 1Description

A simple lens with a slightly longer-than-normal perspective, the HC 100mm f/2.2 Lens from Hasselblad is an H system optic featuring an improved shutter unit to permit working with shutter speeds up to 1/2000 sec., with flash sync available at all speeds. Well-suited to portraiture, this lens' fast f/2.2 maximum aperture allows for extensive control over depth of field for producing selective focus imagery, and also benefits working in low-light conditions. A full focusing AF system offers quick performance, which can also be manually overridden for fine-tuned focusing control as closely as 3.0' away.

Updated HC 100mm f/2.2 lens features an improved central shutter unit that offers a faster shutter speed range of up to 1/2000 sec. with flash sync available at all speeds. This lens is demarcated by an orange dot, and also features a more robust design that has been tested for up to 1,000,000 actuations.
Slightly longer-than-normal lens with a 34° angle of view, this portrait-length prime features a fast f/2.2 maximum aperture that affords extensive control over depth of field and provides a bright viewfinder image.
Simple six elements in five groups design produces a flat image plane with very low distortion for clean, realistic image quality.
Full focusing AF lens with manual focus override for increased control when focusing as closely as 3.0' away. Depth of field and distance scales are also featured in the design to aid in pre-focusing and hyperfocal focusing techniques.

    Hasselblad HC reviews

    HC 100mm f/2.2 Lens is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic Lens I was between the the HC 2.8/80 and the HC 2.2/100. If you just look at the MTF Charts at f5.6 the 80mm has an advantage at the center but at the edges where the 100mm takes over. The 80mm weights 475g, the 100mm weights 780g, the length/diameter are 70/84mm for the 80mm and 80.5/87.5mm for the 100mm. The 100mm is a little soft. I liked the fact that the filter diameter is 77mm, same as many filters that I already own. I also like the focal lenth better on the 100mm, equivalency to a 35mm camera is: 60.4mm for the 80mm and 73.3mm for the 100mm. In the end, I did not mind that this lens weights and is bigger. Both lenses are good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sharp, fast, 1/2000 shutter gives options I'm new to medium format with the Hasselblad H6D 50c (100c when available). I first got the 120mm mk2, 100, and 24mm lenses (all 1/2000 of a second). The 120 and 100 are super sharp and look/work great. The 24 was returned due to a clarity issue that most likely was just in that lens, but I also found bad barrel distortion and vignetting on the 50c, so God only knows how it will play on the 100c's larger physical sensor. This 100mm lens has become my go-to lens for portraits. Also, Canon shooters take note; I've shot with canon since 1994, but now using the H6D / 100mm for portraits nails focus (using Truefocus) 99% of the time. With canon I use the 70-200 2.8IS MK2 (on my second copy of that lens) and there are a good bunch of out of focus images from any given shoot. Also the HB's color and tone are quite noticeable when shooting same subject on Canon. However the trade off is that Hasselblad's Phocus software is horrible and takes much longer to run a shoot through that then Lightroom. HB images look better being processed in Phocus than Lightroom, but what a shock. Also note for Profoto D1 users, I find the 1/2000 sync shutter of the 100mm cuts the light quite a bit, depending on the power level of the light, so flash duration is a factor. Good luck and Cheers!!
