I read this post as " I have a Hasseloff, as in David "Knight Rider" Hasseloff. I thought "Who cares and why would you want a Hasseloff?" :) Time for bed.

LOL Neil, I thought the same thing when I read that product announcement. Then I thought, heck, I could machine a custom grip out of some exotic wood and paste it on the RX100, et voila! Hasselblad!

I'm pretty sure the entire site gave a collective groan at that one.

Sad, sad, sad... At best, pathetic at worst...

Well, as lame as that is, at least it doesn't look as wretched as that damn Lunar.

ETA: If you weren't familiar with that already, it's a $7,000 NEX-7 that got pummeled with an ugly stick for a few weeks.

Stop! I can't breathe...

I can breathe, but I just want to cry...

Once upon a time Hasselblad and Leica made the stuff of a photographer's dreams. To see them reduced to products like these...

I see some many cameras I want to buy just to put on a shelf and look at them because I think they are works of art. These are some of the ugliest things I have ever seen.

I don't know how any designer could think that combination of wood and metal could possibly look good. I'd be embarrassed to bring that out in public, even if I'd spent $5k on it (or however much it costs)

Both that and the lunar are simply fugly, overpriced, rebranded Sonys.

Hasselblad defends Lunar's concept and pricing

Not too keen on those. This, however, is a design classic i get get behind. i'll have to start smoking a pipe if i get one though.

He did say "that combination"

As an owner of the Sony Nex 7 I'm a little flattered but......seriously???

Hasselblad never ceases to amaze me. I used their 6X6 med. format 503's and 503CW's for years shooting weddings and senior portraits. Had they just made a reasonably priced digital back when the tide was turning they would have made a killing. But, oh noooooo, they chose to miss the opportunity and only provide hi-end digital backs for those few hi-priced paid fashion and advertising photog's in New York City (to name a few). I thought they were going to go the way of Kodak but I guess they survived. But this? Very strange. Not only did they take a consumer camera and label it as high end but they didn't even build the darn thing (except for the wrapping).
