What do you mean unfortunately not from Sony.. Who do you think is building this camera for Hasselblad?

And do you think Hasselblad would be partnering on a mount that was being "dumped" Nope..

As a matter of fact I assume there are contracts etc. That would put Sony in a whole lot of legal hurt of they were to drop support after Hasselblad partnered.

First shoe of the A-mount update cycle drops...

Am I understanding this right? It's an a99 with a new body for nearly 5 times the price?

Looks like some of the shooting speeds are improved..

Also I don't remember Sony having Dolby in the video audio...

But yes its a Sony updated A99... with a High end Brand. with a case and at twice the price

Oh wait it comes with 2 batteries, a lens, and an Pelican case. That justifies the price then.

That's a  rebranded A99 kit with a nice case, at double price.

That's a nice case though, I would pay $ 19.99 for that

Looking at the relationships of Minolta and Sony these may be called good friends. I have worse friends (financially).

I must admit I can not place these collaborations in perspective.

It's to cater to the market of those who need to pay more, and show that they have.

Internal software will probably make it stand out from the a99
In reply to Sam_Oslo, 5 months ago

Surely Hassleblad would not just "rebadge" an a99 and put their name on it.  No gain there!

- that spelling error made me believe that someone was making fun. And if you go to to hasselblad.com, I can't find any reference to the camera there (or it is well hidden). And then a pricetag of €8.500 {gulp} ...strange..I wonder if DPR will review it...

One spelling error happens.. but I like your critical thinking..

Did a who is check.. Domain registration admin contacts are the same for main domain and this domain. and this domain was registered in July of 2013.  The production work on this sight and PDF would run several thousand.. very difference from an HTML page and a Photoshop hoax.

But can this be an indication of the upcoming updates to A77 or A99???

Or this exactly the same.....Seems a few years too late for whats becoming outdated...

anyone find specs on this yet? It may reveal whats about to be released if so.....

A) A99 is less than a year old.. FF cameras that cost more than $2000 NEVER update annually. Patience.. I suspect Sony will add a 36MP DSLR

A77 will be before August an my guess is May of this year.. in conjunction with PMM large PhotoShow.

The site has specs PDF fliers etc.

Looks like an a99 with some spec updates.. in shooting speed ( I am seeing 10FPS listed)
