The Fuji files are brighter than Hasselblads which leads me to believe that the true ISO used is different for each. Also mentioning several times in your video that the highlight s in the Fuji held better just the opposite the gradation of highlights in the metal and on the faces is clearly much more even in the Hasselblad files. I forgot what raw processed software you said was used but for my Fuji files I use C1 and PS for my Hasselblad files I use Phocus and PS. The color of the blue sky in Fuji has a bit of turquoise blue maybe to much and the Hasselblad has a bit of purple in the blue maybe to much.

Conclusion using a Sekonic meter to set the exact sweet spot for iso base value might have been needed to acquire a more neutral comparison for both platforms.

Anyways either system exemplified true brilliantly pp images you can’t go wrong with either.

Using the X1Dii on a daily basis wouldn’t be for me I use the H6D100c for its remarkable control of highlights maybe the best of any system out there and the Fuji XPro2 Xt2 Xt3 and Xt4 until recently I was sitting at 7 on a scale from 1-10 w the Lightroom pp files from Fuji now that I’ve switched to C1 Fuji is a 9. The H6D100c tethered to Phocus is unbeatable for getting it fight in camera, my oceanscapes with long exposure are mind boggling.

You guys really did a great job pointing out the differences between the two platforms and it’s refreshing to see reviews on other than Sony vs Nikon or canon.
