Compact Hasselblad anyone ?

Here is the tease ... more "lust" than "need" but I find it quite nicely designed:

Test-Driving the Hasselblad Stellar Special Edition Digital Camera | explora

Incredibly, this used to sell for $2,999.00 and now at $999.00

Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX100 Digital Camera (Black) DSCRX100/B B&H

or $498 if you don't mind having Sony on the front of your camera and no wooden grip.

Well, as it's an old RX100 in a slightly housing and a tad redesign of the menus I really don't find it incredible, I see it as reason.

Dont forget the nifty case, the leather straps, and the beautiful body design. Of course its guts are all Sony but the trimmimgs are nice, not +$500 nice IMHO.

It is still incredibly overpriced and inferior. Just like Hasselblad Lunar, another bejeweled Sony clone with a literally insane price tag
The only thing Hasselblad did well was those product photos and marketing campaign. Most people still don't appreciate it, though. These cameras are sold to people who go "Give me the most expensive compact camera!" - without putting any thought into the purchase. I'm sure we will find some celebrities using this silly thing, but I doubt we would find any photographers actually buying it

Squirrels love the wooden grip, they say it tastes just like chicken.

That's actually a Sony RX100II, while today you can get a RX100III for less money. They could have put that grip on a watermelon and it would make as much sense.

This model goes even further back: it's only a Sony RX100 (no tilting screen, no BSI sensor, no Wi-Fi, no hotshoe). Of course, it isn't intended to be a (serious) camera, so all of that is secondary to the "H" on the front. What I've always wondered is whether Hasselblad is even known as a luxury brand to non-photographers... and if so, how does it compare in "brandiness" to a Leica/Panasonic?

Meanwhile, I'll wait for the HV to come down to $1k or lower...

Yes and the "review" does mention something that is "borrowed" from the Sony.
