For a long time I’ve longed for a digital camera with simple manual focussing. Zone focussing, where you can easily adjust the zone with a quick movement of the finger.Old viewfinder streetshooter style.If the rest of the electronic is as fast and easy to operate as an analog camera this is an attractive camera.
I never had a Leica, never liked rangefinder focussing, never found Leica prices attractive… but the Q strikes a cord. (And one can always put gaffer tape on the red dot or paint it black)
For the time being I’m ok with my private LR license.
But this subscription-based model means, considering a private Photoshop license is out of question. I simply don't trust Adobe.
It’s kind of ironic - we ditch big and heavy DSLR systems for small and lightweight mirrorless systems. Why on earth should we be interested in an expensive and rigid subscription-based model?
Braxton7: I like the snakeskin one best http://2.static.img-dpreview.com/files/news/8207632916/Lunar4.jpg?v=1584 That flash looks baddass with it :)
They only have to glue some snakeskin on the lenses as well and I'll buy it.
Seedeich: After this... which professional photographer wants to use Hasselblad?It might become a reputation disaster.
From a design point of view...The carbon fiber version looks quite cool... if there weren’t these Rolex dials.The lenses look totally out of place.That flimsy pop-up flash on a gold body... ridiculous.Didn’t they have time or competent designers to finish the project if they really want to go the kitsch-route?
Marty, I’m aware of that it’s not targeted at photographers.The problem is, that they do it under the Hasselblad label.Before this, the name Hasselblad was only associated with pro-photo-tools, even if lots of their customers where non-pros, who want to buy into a prestigious label.Now the label Hasselblad is f*** associated with kitsch.Seems to be a great achievement. Grrr.
