Camera maker Hasselblad certainly turned heads when it announced the release of its new mirrorless interchangeable lens camera at the 2012 Photokina trade show and will make good on its promise at the end of this summer.
It has been reported that Hasselblad has postponed the original April release of the Lunar, which originally drew some criticism for its approximately $6,500 release price. Although it isn’t clear at present as to the fate of the delayed Lunar, some of the features photographers and enthusiasts can look forward to include a 24.3MP APS-C sensor, 25 AF points, an ISO range of 100 to 16000, a 3-inch LCD and OLED viewfinder, and a wooden grip.
The camera, crafted out of carbon fiber, titanium, leather and gold, will also be compatible with Sony E and A mounts as it was based on the Sony NEX-7. We’ll keep you posted with updates on the Lunar as they become available.
