Victor Hasselblad was the designer of the cameras and the CEO of Hasselblad AB , he died 1978

He must be spinning in his grave

Hasselblad is no longer a Swedish company ( or camera company) but the name sounds better then:

Ventizz Capital Fund IV, LP, wich ownes the company now

"After eight years of ownership by the Hong Kong-based Shriro group, Hasselblad is now moving back to its European roots."

Yeah  right , a Swiss/German holding company instead of the Swedish camera firm

They should have changed the name to The emperors new camera corp or 10cc ( but this was taken)
