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

Sony A6300 overheating issue has been surfaced over the web, according to camera users Sony A6300 camera overheats during video recording and automatically shut down.
Still we don’t have any word from Sony but we do hope they will issue press release related to the overheating problem. However the overheating problem in Sony camera is not new if we remember the problems of a33 and a55 cameras.
Take a look what other websites are saying
“Sadly pros can’t even rely on the A6300 as a B-camera due to the overheating, especially not for any kind of live filming or interview work at all.” (eoshd)
“Unlike my a5100 where i could just turn the switch on/off and it would just keep on shooting with a6300 if i turn it off and on the message appears again that it overheated and the camera shuts down. waited no kidding 3-4 min and turn it back on… same isssue turned off in less then 1 min.” (dpreview user forum)
