New Hasselblad Lunar titanium version!

www.sonyalpharumors.com
Hasselblad launched a new Hasselblad Lunar variation made of titanium and red leather.
The camera’s wide range ISO sensitivity allows the user to shoot in almost any light.
But if their previous photophools cameras were not "elite" enough, they are now back with a new "Lunar Limited Edition", with only 200 worldwide copies to be made available, and a before tax price of 7200 euro in Europe.
Once upon a time Hasselblad was a very respected photography company.
