Apophis: The Perfect USB Flash Drive for Photos Shot with the Hasselblad Lunar

If you’re planning to pick up a $6,500 Hasselblad Lunar mirrorless camera and need a matching USB flash drive to store your photos, you should definitely take a look at the Apophis. It’s a high-end flash drive by Polish firm Zana Design that, like the Lunar, is crafted out of rare materials. How rare? Well, one of the ingredients is meteorite.

That’s right: it contains chunks of a 4.5-billion-year-old space rock in its outer shell — a casing that’s made out of exotic 200-year-old black African wood (supposedly “the most luxurious wood in the world”) and “high-purity” diamond. As if that’s not enough, the drive comes in “Gold” and “Silver” variants that — you guessed it — are plated with 18-carat gold and 925 silver, respectively.

Made with gold and rare woods, the Apophis Gold flash drive is the perfect companion for your Hasselblad Lunar (shown here).

The USB 3.0 drives both have 64GB capacities, 190MB/s read speeds, and lifetime guarantees.

Given all the Apophis’ crazy attributes, the pricing is actually quite reasonable — as long as you think the Hasselblad Lunar’s price is reasonable. The Gold version costs $1,990 and the Silver one costs $1,130. Head on over to Zana Design to buy yours today.

P.S. In case you’re wondering, the name “Apophis”, refers to the near-Earth asteroid 99942 Apophis that has a 1/250,000 chance of striking our planet on April 13, 2036.


P.P.S. We also think both the Lunar and the Apophis would be the perfect gifts for people who have everything — like this guy:

    I actually like the shape of the lunar tho most of the materials I’ve seen used for the demo models ruin it quickly.

    Not nearly ugly enough to match the Lunar.

    I would buy some if the prices were not that high. Who says that I can’t use them with them with my mid grade Canon camera. Never had anything made from a meteorite before.
