The camera of your dreams just arrived and, no, it is not on a phone. For those of you who still appreciate actual cameras say hello to the V1D concept camera. The 75-megapixel shooter was inspired by the classic Hasselblad V Camera, but this one has a fully-customizable camera body that includes modules on all four sides. The left and right sides have round fixings for controls and grips, while the top and back could carry displays, viewfinders or accessories. Basically this camera is made for everyone including left handers! And though it has all these new customizable features, it still resembles its classic predecessor.
From the official press release: “The V1D 4116 Concept is a study created to explore the Hasselblad heritage to find new ways of designing innovative cameras for the future. Hasselblad’s engineers and designers came up with a modular concept with a square format (75MP) inspired by the classic Hasselblad V Camera.”
Considering the 50-megapixel, medium-format sensor has so many modern features like WiFi, GPS, decent 25,600 ISO low-light sensitivity, dual SD slots and USB 3.0, it is no wonder the price tag comes in at $13,000 (and this includes a very snazzy leather black strap, extended warranty and custom box.) And if you feel like spending a bit more money you can purchase a $2,300 XCD 45mm lens.
The camera was released as part of the 75th anniversary of Hasselblad.
