Hasselblad X1D-50c Tops DxOMark Sensor Score Charts
The Hasselblad X1D-50c (read review) has achieved the highest DxOMark Sensor Score of 102 points for any commercially-available sensor the company has ever tested. The X1D-50c excels in all three of DxOMark’s measurement categories, achieving either the top-ranked or a podium position result in each. At base ISO, the X1D-50c offers outstanding colour depth (Portrait score) of 26.2 bits and a dynamic range (Landscape score) of 14.8 EV. In low light, the X1D-50c achieves the highest-ranked low-light ISO (Sports score) DxOMark has tested to date (4489 ISO). "Image quality on the Hasselblad X1D-50c is outstanding, crashing through the 100-point barrier to become the highest-scoring commercially-available sensor we’ve tested," DxOMark says. "At 102 points overall, it also achieves either the best, or very close to the best results for both colour depth and dynamic range. Combine that with its 50Mp resolution and mirrorless design, all packaged at a more realistic price tag, the X1D-50c starts to look like a tantalizing prospect."
