What just happened?! Looking back on last week
The Hasselblad hoax that we hope stays a hoax*
Mere hours after the announcement of Sony's A7 and A7R full-frame mirrorless interchangeable lens cameras, some wag created a fake 'Hasselblad Solar', complete with luxurious wooden handgrip and (one has to assume) ludicrously inflated price. Despite being quickly revealed as a fake, the Solar was reported as real news by more than one site, which if nothing else gave us a laugh in the middle of a crazy week. And some of your comments on our post were priceless.
Of course, following the all-too-real Hasselblad Lunar and Stellar, we wouldn't be entirely surprised if the 'Solar' becomes a reality in the next few months. It's a funny old world.
