Exciting camera news keep coming in. In March first rumors started circulating about high end camera maker Hasselblad making a move into more consumer friendly cameras. Today they announce the new Lunar mirrorless camera. Of course they still want to set the bar high and they for sure did.
“Hasselblad’s looking to build on that theme with its new Lunar mirrorless, which according to the company “revives the timeless charm” of 1957’s 500c — and if nothing else, the camera’s got a curvy, space age body, built out of high grade aluminum with either a carbon fiber (available in black, silver or titanium colors) or wood (beech, olive, pear or mahogany) grip.
Inside, you’ll get a Bionz processor processor and an APS-C 24.3 megapixel sensor. The Lunar can do 10 frames per second, full HD recording and sports a 100 to 16000 ISO range. On the rear, you’ll find a swiveling three-inch display. All of that’s packed into a body that weighs roughly a pound.”
Apparently you will be able to choose all sorts of luxurious materials for the upper design of the camera, which is made mostly of Sony parts on the inside actually. The starting price will be around 5000 USD, which is hefty for a mirrorless camera. We cannot wait to find out more about the new camera.
