Someone Finally Spotted Shooting with a Hasselblad Lunar
So the Hasselblad Lunar, after being announced last year, hasn’t been met with much critical acclaim. Many photographers were quick to point out that it’s just a re-skinned Sony NEX camera for a heck of a price increase. Others were more willing to forgive the guts, but attack the design. Whatever the case, filmmaker David Lynch might be the first photographer we’ve seen using the camera.
Lynch was photographing Trent Reznor after a music video shoot for Nine Inch Nails’ latest single. It’s kind of a cool set, though the music video he was shooting for might be my least favorite video ever (I’m not posting it here because it’s hard on the eyes, but if you want to see it head over to Youtube). Whatever the case, below are a pair of images with the remainder found at Rob Sheridan’s blog.
Though Sony Alpha Rumors kind of makes you think the music video was shot on the Lunar, I’m not sure it was. The blog is tagged “Canon 5DM3″ and nowhere do could I find any statement that the video was shot on the Lunar.
