Hasselblad presents Stellar II camera
The Swedish digital camera maker Hasselblad has announced the release of its latest product – a digital camera called Stellar II. According to the company the new Stellar II camera has been exclusively created for fans, collectors and enthusiasts.
Just like other Hasselblad products the new Stellar II camera is the good old Sony Cyber-shot RX100 II, just inside a different chassis. The chassis is special, however, and makes use of four different types of very valuable wood. The tech specs remain the same as in the Cyber-shot RX100 II but in case you don’t know them we will list them here – expect to find a 20.2 MP 1-inch Exmor CMOS sensor, f/1.8 Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T lens with 3.6x zoom, high speed AF, up to ISO 12 800 sensitivity, JPEG and RAW image mode, a tiltable 3-inch display, connectivity to smartphones via Wi-Fi or NFC and more.
The new Hasselblad Stellar II camera sells for EUR 1650. This will likely be the last model of this kind as the Swedish company just recently closed its Italian design office, which was involved in such projects.
