Hasselblad has no shame, announces new Stellar II camera

Pin It

The Hasselblad Stellar camera has been around for over a year (PhotoRumors first broke the news in July, 2013). It seems that the company still believes in this concept after closing their design center in Italy and changing their CEO – they just announced a new Stellar II camera ($2,395) based on the Sony RX 100 II model ($648):

Confirmed: Hasselblad closed their Italian design center

Pin It

Today Photoscala confirmed what I already reported back in May: the Italian design center in Treviso, that Hasselblad opened in 2012, has been closed. Hasselblad is probably/hopefully abandoning the idea of creating high-end re-batched Sony cameras like the Lunar, Stellar, Solar and HV models. There is still no official statement from the company.
