Hasselblad H4D-50 RAW file

Recommended Posts

Hi i have just recently purchase Affinity photo for the PC. have been playing with it and love the feature set. I have tried to open up the H4D-50 RAW file in affinity. the files opens with minimal fuss. the only thing is i find the colors are much more muted on affinity photo. In order to match the Hasselblad Phocus colors there would be quite a number of adjustment needed. could i suggest that a  tone curve that matches the hasselblad phocus  be made. Do let me know if i can contribute anything. i would be happy to. 

 

I have attach a screen shot comparing the Hasselblad Phocus vs Affinity when both are at zero adjustments.

 

i hope this could also be standardise on the Ipad affinity photo too as i own that. 

 

thanks again

In Phocus you use the Hasselblad raw converter. This is written for your camera. Affinity photo uses the raw concrete from the OS. I suggest you always convert your raw files in Phocus or Lightroom. You always get a better result.

I agree with your suggestion. I have been experimenting. It seem that I can get better noise reduction in affinity photo. Was just hoping there is a way to get a similitude starting point to phocus. Especially the colors. At the moment opening the files in affinity the colours are a bit wash out and the colour balance is a bit off.

Not quite correct, on Win it uses it's own RAW engine and only on Macs you can choose here between the apps own and the Mac OS one. - Beside that, it's obvious that Hasselblad knows it's own cams RAW format best and so no surprise here will give right out of the box overall better results.
