Back on April in an interview Hasselblad hinted us that they are planning to announce new camera soon. Now if we look at lines of interview by WEXgraphics, we can see the hidden msg 😉 – More Surprises coming at Photokina 2016. That clearly indicates that Hassy is ready to announce interesting products in near future.
Q. Is this camera designed by or in collaboration with Fuji?
A. We have a fantastic relationship with Fuji, but this product has been completely designed, conceptualised and manufactured here in Sweden and assembled in Japan by Nittoh. Fuji has absolutely nothing to do with it
Q. Why is the price so low compared to other medium-format bodies?
A. The H camera is a modular concept, an established system that is for users that want to continually upgrade. Being mirrorless there is a price difference but we haven’t cut costs. We would like to reach more people
Q. Who is this camera aimed at?
A. It’s aimed at existing customers. But at the same time, we see the advanced amateurs as well as professionals who may want to upgrade to medium format coming to this camera
Q. How good are the new lenses?
A. These new XCD lenses have the same performance level as all of the H lenses, they are spectacular
Q. Anything for later in the year?
A. There’s more to come, but this is a milestone and a new path. But there will be more surprises at Photokina
Sigma Finally in the mood to enter in the Cinema lens market, according to latest rumor coming from rumormill We may see Cinema Lenses from Sigma Soon. But the Big Question is when Sigma is ready to enter in the Cinema world ? at the moment we can expect to see development announcement of new products this September.
The Rumor is not New
The rumor is not new on July 18, 2014 In an interview to Resource Magazine Sigma CEO Kazuto Yamaki SILENCE hinted that they are working on Cinema Lenses
“How could one of the greatest innovators of lens technology in the world not be producing lenses for high-end digital video and motion picture cameras? With such high standards, cinematographers seem like a natural market for Sigma. When I asked Kazuto about this, he simply smiled and said the two words that make every tech writer crave more: “No comment.” It looks like Sigma may still has a few more tricks up their sleeve…”
We will update you soon as we get any new information.
