Union, NJ—Hasselblad is expanding its compact mirrorless system camera line with the Stellar II, which the company says is “conceived and crafted exclusively for aficionados, collectors and connoisseurs.”
Highlighted by unique finishes and details, the Hasselblad Stellar II sports a distinctive design with a rich palette of fine woods utilized both on the camera and its packaging. The camera is being offered with four different finishes: lightweight, durable carbon fiber; olive hardwood; densely grained walnut; and exotic padouk.
“Fueled by our ongoing collaboration with Sony and Zeiss, the pocket-sized Stellar models are proving extremely popular,” said Hasselblad’s CEO, Ian Rawcliffe. “Photographers are delighted to have the option of owning the latest technology married with Hasselblad’s design vision and heritage.”
The interchangeable-lens camera includes NFC (Near Field Communication) technology and integrated Wi-Fi to make it effortless and intuitive for photographers to transfer images to smartphones, tablets and computers for sharing. It also features a 20.2 megapixel sensor and low-light performance for stills and Full HD 1080/60p video.
The camera’s expanded functionality includes a 3.6x optical zoom Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* lens and a 3.0-inch, high-resolution LCD screen with an increased 45° downward or 84° upward range of motion. An advanced antiglare coating was also added to increase sharpness in high light environments.
