  1. That camera is not truly designed for low light use, they effectively took the sensor from one of their 50 megapixel studio cameras, and integrated it into a compact camera frame.
    They made no changes to the sensor to handle normal camera use. Medium format cameras likely will not get anything like on sensor phase detect, as those take sensor space, and are often mapped out as dead pixels in the metadata of the raw file. Because of that, they just stick with contrast detect which is more accurate than on sensor phase detect, but is also far slower, which usually shouldn't matter in a studio setting. A better choice would have been the Nikon D850 which would give better low light quality, and only slightly worse quality in good lighting compared to the hassleblad camera.

  2. Is it safe to assume that the upload failed somehow and we only got the first 98 seconds? Or didn't it render properly in the first place, and they forgot to check that the full video had been saved? If neither of these things is true, then this a pretty embarrassing failure of a review.
