I know Nikon guys will hate me because I keep saying the Nikon D800 sensor is from Sony But if I am right Sony will release a camera with such a sensor next year! The amazing team from TheCameraStoreTV tried to figure out if that sensor can match the quality of medium format cameras like the Hasselblad H4D-40 ($18.000 on Amazon). Watch the video to find out the answer.
But if you are on hurry I will unveil you the final verdict. The medium format camera still has the edge when it comes to get superb skin tones and dynamic range (particularly in the highlight area). But in terms of resolution the 36 Megpaixel sensor is pretty close, in the shadow area it even beats the Hasselblad and it’s an absolute winner at High ISO.
A look into the future: Sony already officially stated that they are working on 100 megapixel FF sensors. I dont’ need that
