Seems that Hasselblad are gonna start making cheaper consumer grade cameras. "Cheaper" in this case means 4000+ euros but they dont state what the final cost will be and there's no detailed information.

What was the Lunar?
What was the Stellar?
What was the HV?
These fuckheads already did this and they failed so hard. Even Hasselblad-branded Sony lenses are cheaper than the 'originals'.
>The right thing to do for Habbelsad now is to fire all their senior leeches and crappy designers, and hire some people who will put out the exact camera that I want, for me personally, at the exact price that I feel I can/will pay for it, regardless of the market, the cost of researching and producing it, or the repercussions to the company itself.

DSLR sales are already plummeting dangerously in the face of cell phones and compact offerings. So it makes total sense that they would re-tool their small nice market approach to produce cameras that are larger, slower, more expensive, less versatile, and entirely less attractive, in order to attract a market that has already abandoned far better options in the face of convenience and cost savings.
What would you fags even do with a 7lb brick of a camera? You'd take it out and try to shoot "street" with it, and come back and fag about fine detail and dynamic range.
We never have "Company comes out with an excellent subject for your photos for less than $1000" or "Holy shit look at this amazing light kit you can get for under 3k"
You know, things that would actually benefit people on the board.
For the last ten years, Hasselblad, formerly one of the best camera makers, only released uninspired and lazy updates of their H system. Should I even mention the ridiculous attempt at selling rebadged Sony cameras for ten times the price?
Why should one pay for R&D when there's none involved?
The company is a sinking ship.
which of those statements do you not think makes sense? The one that is obvious, despite being an opinion? or the one that is a completely verifiable fact that he would absolutely not be at all allowed to lie about, as an employee?
