Hasselblad To Release Expensive Re-Skinned RX100 as the “Stellar”
Apparently all the bad press surrounding the Lunar hasn’t deterred Hasselblad from their present course of skinning current Sony cameras with the expensive “H” logo and wood accents. PhotoRumors is reporting that Hasselblad will be releasing a compact camera called the “Stellar” that will just be the RX100 with some fancy aesthetic additions. Well, at least they aren’t toting megapixels, right?

I suppose it could be worse. The price is expected to be between $1600 and $3200 and the RX100 is a really fine camera. But to me, this emphasis on looks over quality of camera is pretty bizarre. When other companies are trying to focus on and impress us with specs, Hasselblad is focusing on the fashionability. At least they dare to be different?
