Hasselblad has plans to burn yet another hole in your pocket with an upcoming Italian designed mirrorless camera known as Hasselblad Lunar, where it is said to carry a price tag of $6,500 – which is definitely an amount not to be sneezed at. Expected to carry traditional Hasselblad state-of-the-art image capture alongside artistically stunning Italian design features, the Hasselblad Lunar was developed traditionally via the implementation of handcrafted wooden prototypes that ensures superior ergonomics as well as high-end functionality. Not only that, it must be noted that the Lunar will be able to see action in fully manual and fully automatic modes, and is not exactly the clumsiest device to figure out, but rather, it is the opposite, packing in advanced technology found in DSLRs while being a snap to use.

The Hasselblad Lunar will come with a 24.3-megapixel sensor with 25AF points focusing, where it is aided by a speedy processor with real time image processing so that your images will be able to be delivered accurately in RAW format. A 3” HD display and an OLED viewfinder are easy on your eyes, while other features include one-touch instant full HD video recording, focus and exposition control, connection for an external microphone, Auto HD, DRO, anti-motion blur mode, optional use of larger A-mount lenses, instant shutter response of 10-frames per second, and an extremely wide ISO 100-16000 range.

The Hasselblad Lunar has an estimated launch window that will happen sometime in Q1 2013, so you might want to keep your fingers crossed that your boss will give you a big, fat bonus later this year for Christmas.
