Hasselblad has followed up the summer launch of Stellar, its second camera aimed at the amateur and enthusiast market, with the unveiling of three new 'Stellar Special Edition' compact cameras.

The latest Stellar models offer photographers the choice of three new camera body colours: black, white and orange - and ship with bespoke camera cases in black or white leather with signature stitching and shoulder and wrist straps.

Luca Alessandrini, Hasselblad's New Business Development Director said: "The launch of our Stellar brand in July was a great success and now we are offering discerning customers new options on this outstanding point and shoot camera. Stellar Special Edition models are now available with carbon fibre, padouk or wenge wood grips and come with exclusive leather cases specially designed at our elite Italy-based Design Centre. The latest models will retail at € 2,375 / £ 1,975 / $ 3,175 (excl. VAT)." 

Stellar compact cameras incorporate Hasselblad's advanced imaging technology, Carl Zeiss lenses, Full HD video and a 3.6 x optical zoom capability. The camera's wide range ISO sensitivity allows the user to shoot in almost any light.

Stellar is Hasselblad's second camera launch in the consumer photography marketplace. Its first model, Lunar, made its global debut in the spring - and for the first time offered consumers a camera embracing traditional Hasselblad state-of-the-art image capture finesse combined with stunning Italian design features.

Why doesn't this site review any Hasselblad or Phase One products?

Eric, because the target audience already KNOWS what they want and don't need an advice. If you need an advice to choose between Hasselblad and Phase One, chances are, you're not ready for either of them.

That doesn't stop them reviewing pro DSLRs. The target audience of those already know what they want.

Good point actually! Reviewing professional DSLRs is just as pointless. If it's a professional, he'd figured it all out a long time ago. If it's an upgrading prosumer, he'll be bound by the lenses he already has. I suppose it's a question of personal ambition for editors and a chance for manufacturers to advirtize their products a bit more through those reviews. And of course it attracts the curious novices like myself. :-)

Besides (and it concerns pro-DSLRs as well) the differences are so tiny that I doubt they can be measured or even designate as pros or cons. I doubt image quality is any different between Hasselblad and Phase One. Or 1Dx and D4, for that matter.

I suppose everyone really knows this is just a tarted up Sony camera available at a quarter the price? And that the smugly claimed 'Hasselblad technology' is entirely created by Sony or Zeiss?
