Hasselblad has unveiled plans to launch a high-end mirrorless camera with a Sony E-mount. Dubbed the “Lunar”, the camera will sport a 24.3MP APS-C sensor and capture full HD video.
The Hasselblad Lunar appears to be a rebadged Sony NEX-7 with lots of Hasselblad fluff on the outside. The body and grip of the Lunar will feature carbon fiber, titanium, wood, leather and precious metals, including gold, to help drive up the price to around €5000 (no word yet on US pricing).
The Hasselblad Lunar should arrive in the first quarter of 2013.
