Roland Karlsson: Hand made in Sweden?
Sweden will release a "beaten by Belgium" edition.
ZurichPhoto: I noticed the top control dial does not include (P), a picture of a mountain, a leaf, or a silhouette of a person, and yet somehow it's over $10K :)
Love this. It may very well be my entry point into medium format. Can't wait to see the roll-out in July.
And thank you, Hasselblad, for not announcing an extension of the Lunar line. For that, we are all grateful.
Time to drop "game changer" too.
2JoeA7R2: 2016 Camera of the year!!!
We haven't heard from Kodak yet!
A couple of the sample test shots look like the Oskar Barnack nominees.
RedMangrove: I wish someone would be a game changer in naming cameras. How many X's, 1's, and D's do we need?
That would make it a name changer not game changer.
Digitalis32: As a user of hasselblad medium format cameras - be warned, batteries from hasselblad are typically very expensive.
Well, the body sells for $9000.
chkproductions: To me, it's a game changer in size vs. format. A camera the size of a Sony 7x packing 50 meg is remarkable. I used every version of film 'blads when I shot boating catalogues. And then the cost is a high-end bargain. Obviously real world tests will validate it. Wish the screen was articulating.
We could all wait for 55mp!
I love the "game changer" posts...hilarious.
Some titles so pretentious they are hilarious. A couple of the photos are just okay.
Will B Milner: Vacuous dribble wrapped in a pretentious shell. I'm sure they're all 'Big Thinkers' who have managed to see the world for what it 'Really Is!'.
Great post. I agree. Thank you.
Some pretentious nonsense here. Hilarious.
I that a G Master 24-70 in your front pocket or are you glad to see us?
Kiwisnap: Sizes do not go large enough for wearing over layers in winter. Especially for Americans.
The Hillary/Bernie breeds are different too. Not that any of this belongs on the forum.
lynmay: Not only is it crazy expensive, but once againonly made for men.
It would be great if female photographers couldget the tough gear made for men, but buildfor the needs of active female photographers without it being twice as expensive.
Of course, if this company made it only theQueen could afford it.
No LGBT version either.
Oh how trendy. Matching beret?
gravelhopper: To the people who are bothered by photos depicting human suffering:
You are asking to be spared with that kind of pictures.
I suggest an alternative approach: you contribute to a world where we have less suffering, especially the kind that humans inflict on humans. Every individual contributes in some direct or indirect way to the human condition, thus has the power and the possibilities to influence how that condition develops.
To those who claim that only an insignificant number of people experience some kind of suffering: do your research and get a better feeling for our reality. Denying facts doesn't make them nonexistent.Cheers.
You must take great photos with your lofty position of being higher than everyone else. What a unique vantage point you have.
Sean65: Have the mods edited this comments thread?
Yeah they have.
JackM: Wow. I didn't even know acid throwing was a thing. I hate uncivilized people.
Great post Jack.
I don't think people are "bothered" by misery photos. I believe they are tired that this is what photography contests have come down to.
To suggest to others to "..contribute to a world where we have less suffering" is quite pompous. High horse much?
This is a gear and photography site. Not everyone will fall in goose step and enjoy the same photos.
webber15: Seriously cannot believe some of the aggressive and pathetic comments here attacking Nikon...if fact it just shows those posters up as "mentally challenged" in my view...
It seems to come primarily from one passive aggressive poster who cleverly gets in his knocks at the Japanese and Nikon by seemingly defending them. This form of nastiness is actually a talent of sorts.
