Hasselbald Press Release
Yesterday doesn’t have to be so far away
With the Hasselblad X1 and X5, yesterday’s treasures are brought to life in stunning quality.
Some of our most valuable images didn’t start off digital. So getting them into the digital domain (and getting the most out of them) requires a scanner that can ensure the highest resolution scanning while retaining the quality inherent in the original.
The Norman Parkinson Archive with its 500,000 negatives and 3000 original photographs can attest to such value. By promoting Norman Parkinson’s legacy and celebrating his substantial and ongoing contribution to the development of photography, such gems like the Beatles image above, are a treasure we can enjoy today.
Scanning, whether from transparencies, negatives or reflectives was once an occupation on its own. Nowadays more and more photographers are finding the need to include this activity in their workflow. For faster scanning at a lower cost, the Hasselblad X1 and X5 are integral to a photographer’s equipment today.
Between now and June 30, 2014 you can get $5000 off the price of a Hasselblad Flextight X5 scanner and $3000 off a Hasselblad Flextight X1 scanner when you trade in your old scanner, regardless of make or model*. Contact your local dealer for details.
*Price before/after trade-in rebate:
Flextight X5 - $25,700/$20,700
Flextight X1 - $16,400/$13,400
