The new leaked image of the Hasslblad Stellar shows that the camera will most likely come with a leather strap and a nice (wooden?) box. More images of the Stellar can be found here.
There are also several domain names registered by an European company that contain the words "Hasslblad" and "Stellar":
I cannot believe this is real. Hasselbald–the joke that keeps on giving.
Seems like Hasselblad is now in antiques and jewellery business.
Somebody decided to fool us with the Breitling watch box, cutout foam and the camera-prototype-gone-wrong?
Just WTF is that thing there?!
Hasselblad: A Swedish name for a Japanese camera wearing a tacky Italian suit.™
the Sony RX100 box and box and strap
It’s Hassy in its coffin
Their strategy seems to be improving. The name was a dead giveaway with Lunar (for Lunatics).
Its put me off the whole Hasselblad brand, I just cannot believe they are going ahead and producing cameras to basically con the public, frankly it’s disgusting. Its says a lot about the company, Phase one or Pentax, Mamiya have me on board from now on.
Hasselblad – a grip making company…
That is a very nice box. The camera not so much.
The non-entity continues it’s downward death spiral.
It’s online it’s real, no longer a joke. (Or some swedish students really have too much time).
There is nothing on that website yet.
Yes there is. try a proxy? I’m in holland I can see it.
How do I use a proxy? Can you send me a screenshot?
I put screenshots above. You could use this one. It’s dutch. http://www.surfert.nl/index.php5?q=aHR0cDovL3d3dy5oYXNzZWxibGFkLXN0ZWxsYXIuY29tLw%3D%3D&hl=3ed When the link doesn’t work just past in the url on http://www.surfert.nl
Got it, thanks. Will post online now.
Still no heads rolling… wonder what else it’ll take.
The inability to flip the new Hasselblad at a profit.
Trouble is that a digital compact camera – no matter how good – is basically a throw away item in a couple of years, The 500c/m was designed to be used for decades. Who wants to pay Hasselblad prices for something that will be so quickly outdated?
All you naysayers are ill informed. I read recently in the journal “Meinehosensindvoll” that good leather straps, wooden grips and fancy pants boxes actually increase visual acuity twofold. These cameras are actually good investments. Think DeLorean.
Maybe we’ll see Michael J. Fox using one in a movie too.
You can’t polish a turd and make it shine.
You can if you freeze it first! 🙂
The giant H logo is so gaudy.
Is that real Corinthian leather?
Yep. And it comes with a tiny piece of Ricardo Montalban’s corpse.
“Look, Boss … the Hasselblad, the Hasselblad…!”
Hasselblad is the new Hasselhoff! :))
