A question for DP Review: since you are THE major player in reviewing digital cameras, is this feedback from the public used by camera manufacturers? Is Hasselblad paying attention? And if they do, do they have something to say about their obstination in pursuing a strategy that will most certainly result in staining their legacy?

How embarrassing...

Maurizio Mancioli: Mobile photography is undeniably important, and it should be more and more examined, but this lady's comments are poor. They didn't deserve such visibility in DPreview's site.

Sorry about the lady, got confused...
-50 reasons is asking a bit too much from the reader's patience, the good ones end up "buried" in the weaker ones.
-Too partial. You cannot declare that there are no good selfies. There are some great ones. Some artists just work with that.

My ideal camera wouldn't be something very utopic. It could be a "Pro" version of the sony NEX-7 (NEX-P?), with more traditional, dedicated controls, and a whole bunch of brighter and compact (f/1.4) prime lenses (Leica M-style), as well as 28-70 and 70-200 (equiv.) f/2.8 zooms.

I would never, ever expect such a mistake in all senses from Hasselblad. While I understand their wish to conquer new markets capitalizing on their brand's name, this postioning strategy (disguising a NEX-7) is very very poor. The design is hideous. The original NEX-7 is much more sober, "honest" and pro-looking. The public they're aiming with such a price tag is not a fool !!

Again, I don't think it matters. Unless you are a commercial, documentary or journalistic photographer, the type of camera, or sharpness is not necessarily an issue. As an artist, I have shown photos in exhibitions shot both DSLR and phone cameras. Phones sometimes are great, because it's the only camera you have with you... and you'll have to squeeze the max in terms of composition and poetics out of it.
I would say that in fact, once you reach o certain ability, you can get incredibly artisitic pictures with ANY camera. Search for a friend of mine, Bico Stupacoff. He's a professional photographer who shoots for all the main magazines (Vogue, Playboy) only with an iPhone.
