Famous Swedish camera brand Hasselblad has today announced pricing for its new products, just announced at Photokina.
The most impressive of Hasselblad's announcements has to be the 39 megapixel H3D medium format digital SLR - the world's first with a full 48mm frame-sized image sensor, to be priced at €24,900 (roughly equivalent to US$31,500 ignoring exchange rate fluctuations, taxes and duties and rounded to the nearest $500). The 22 megapixel variant of the same camera will be €19,900 (US$25,000). The Hasselblad HCD 4,0/28mm WA-lens announced alongside the H3D DSLRs will be priced at €3,100 (US$4,000), and the HVM waist level viewfinder will retail at €230 (US$300).
