Let’s start with a little quiz. What one thing makes a pro camera a pro camera? Build quality? Weather sealing? Fast autofocus? Fast motor drive? Dual SD card slots?

Don’t think too long over the answer because it’s none of the above. A pro camera is a camera that a pro uses. Period. Read more…

There’s been a lot of doubt surrounding recent rumors that Sony is working on a couple of revolutionary “lens cameras.” The smartphone-attachable lenses — complete with built-in sensor and processor — seemed far-fetched to some, but now that we have our first leaked images, any remaining doubts should start melting away.

A Review of the Hasselblad Stellar

hasselbladstellar

From the moment of its announcement, Hasselblad’s Stellar camera’s purpose has been controlling the damage done by the same company’s Lunar crash landing. The latter camera is (was?) a ridiculous thing as noted in my Hasselblad Lunar review.

In addition to catching up on Hasselblad’s lost dignity, the Stellar also needs to introduce as little damage as possible. After all, the Sony RX100 camera that the Stellar is based on was already discontinued at the time the Stellar was launched, but the latter’s price is almost $2000 (~€1500). That is more than 2.5X the price of the RX100 successor, the RX100 II.

Stellar Box

About a week ago, the first images of Hasselblad’s upcoming compact camera, the Stellar, leaked onto the Internet amongst rumors that it would essentially be a Sony RX100 with some very exotic housing materials and a much steeper price tag. Basically, people were thinking the RX100 would be to the Stellar what the NEX-7 was to the Lunar.

Now that the camera is official (one day earlier than expected) all of the assumptions seem to have been correct. Read more…

Images of the Hasselblad Stellar Compact Leaked, Official Announcement in 6 Days

stellar1

At the end of last month, a couple of job listings on Hasselblad’s website revealed that the company was working on two new compacts and a DSLR. Part of their partnership with Sony, the hope was that these upcoming models would do better than the Hasselblad Lunar, which fell flat once people discovered it was basically a rebranded Sony NEX-7 with a much larger price tag.

Well, images of the first of those three cameras have leaked, but it doesn’t look like Hasselblad is breaking the mold. Dubbed the Hasselblad Stellar (in keeping with the space theme), the first of the two rumored compacts looks to be a Sony RX100 made with more exotic camera housing materials. Read more…
