Nice test... I'm wishing a 16 bit camera since many years ago instead more mp. I thought the new Nikon D700x or the new D3x would have more bit depth, that would be reasonable, not adding more mp...

HEre you have another test: http://www.dxomark.com/index.php/eng...d2)/Hasselblad

How camera solves dinamyc range. However, in the comparisson I saw in another websote, both Dr and Hasselblad seems to have the same dynamic range... (?)

Re: interesting Nikon D3 vs Hasselblad

I don't believe those tests even they re so scientific, i only believe what i can see, i did a test with my H3DII-39 against my 1DsIII and the H3DII was the winner in everything [color, contrast, DR, sharpness], so i just need to bring D3 or D3X and do another test and see, but i have a feeling that the H3DII will be the winner again, the studio portraits shots i've taken by my H3DII blow away all my shots taken by my 5D, 1DsII, 1DsIII.

I also don't believe in those tests, but that's the only thing available so far. We don't have so much cameras around here. I have never seen any of those cameras you say, just my D700 that was a pain to get.

Re: interesting Nikon D3 vs Hasselblad

I have those Canon cameras i mentioned above with that Hasselblad, i even bought 2 film medium format cameras [Hasselblad 501CM & Mamiya RZ67ProII], and i dream to have a Phase One digital back [minimum P65+] if i can afford it.

Really the results from that Hasselblad H3D is horrible, making me hard to use Canon DSLRs, but good for travel and sports i use Canon, but for studio Hasselblad all the way, when crop the RAW and look at 100% from Hasselblad and Canon/Nikon shots it will show clearly who is the winner, but too bad in many many forums people trying very hard to dump that Hasselblad or Medium Format and telling that those new 35mm DSLRs are the best in the world and no need for medium or large formats, because they want only fast camera or high ISO handle camera or lightweight camera, but i have a feeling that because those digital medium format cameras are crazy expensive so that they try not to look at it and prefer cheap DSLRs even D3X or 1DsIII.

Re: interesting Nikon D3 vs Hasselblad

Tareq, keep in mind that your reasoning is quite selfish. What's cheap for you, it's not for others. I worked my ass off for a year to buy the Nikon D700 and other people, in worst conditions, even don't know what's a camera.
