The Hasselblad Stellar is a 20-megapixel compact camera with a 28-100mm (eq.) f/1.8-4.9 Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens and a 1"-type sensor. Modelled on the Sony RX100, the Hasselblad Stellar retains all the headline specifications and adds a wooden grip. The company has set up a dedicated microsite for the Hasselblad Stellar, but has not officially announced its suggested retail price yet. The camera will go on sale later this month.

Oh, wow. That piece of wood is SO COOL. I love the way they have left the screws exposed, its so retro. And that H, a gorgeous letter H. I would pay at least 5 Pounds more than the RX100 for this vastly superior exterior. One must look good when snapping away, must one not?

Looks hideous compared to the understated original.

Seems to me that Hasselblad have seen Leica sticking a red dot on a Panasonic then doubling the price, and decided to get in on some of that action.

It'll be a gold plated special edition one next!

Disappointed that the powers the be at Hasselblad are lazy and just slapping on a hand grip to differetiate this camera from the Sony RX100. Don't get me wrong - I LOVE MY RX100. But, disppointed that Hassy is just lazily entering the P&S market this way.

Not exactly Super Nova is it unless you have pockets as deep as a black hole.
