Hasselblad has completely unveiled its new H5D-50c Medium Format CMOS Camera. Notably, Hasselblad is keeping the price point the same as its CCD-based H5D-50 camera, but that’s still well into the 5-figure territory. [click to continue…]
Hasselblad has announced another nonsensical rebadge of a Sony camera. This time, the Sony A99 (announced 1.5 years ago) with its 24MP full frame sensor becomes the new Hasselblad HV. [click to continue…]
Hasselblad is taking a break from its recent nonsenical camera releases to launch a serious camera – the H5D-50c with a 50MP medium format CMOS sensor inside.
The CMOS sensor will allow for a faster capture rate, longer shutter speeds and a “much greater ISO performance,” according to Hasselblad Product Manager Ove Bengtson.
The Hasselblad H5D-50c will be available in March. Further details and pricing info will be available just prior to launch. The current, CCD-based H5D-50 runs for $26,995, so expect the CMOS version to get a moderate price hike.
Hasselblad is at it again with a new Lunar mirrorless camera. This one is a special edition camera that “boasts a sumptuous, unique red Tuscan leather grip; a black leather shoulder strap accented with red stitching and an exclusive PVD matte gold-treated top plate – and comes with a ‘before tax’ price tag of €7,200.” That works out to about $10,000 USD.

As if the first round of dolled-up Sony RX100 cameras wasn’t enough, Hasselblad has unveiled 3 additional “special edition” models for the ripe price of $3175 each. Yes, the cameras perform virtually identical to the Sony RX100, but cost 6x the price. While the RX100 is a great camera, it’s not $3175 great.
