Hasselblad Stellar Camera: Bringing an Iconic Brand to the World of Pocket Cameras

The name Hasselblad is iconic in the world of photography.

In fact, the Sweden-based company, which was founded in 1841, is nearly as old as the field of photography itself. For decades, Hasselblad cameras have been prized by many of the world’s greatest photographers. And now, the company has introduced the Stellar pocket camera to bring Hasselblad’s legendary quality to amateur photographers who want only the best.

“The Hasselblad brand has always been about highest quality and distinctive style and we’ve created Stellar as a work of art capture device that you can simply point and shoot to acquire stunning pictures.” says Dr. Larry Hansen, Chairman and CEO of Hasselblad.

The Stellar’s ergonomic handgrips are crafted of the finest materials, including a choice of six exotic woods such as padouk and zebra, and a high-tech carbon fiber option. The camera includes an Italian leather wrist strap and comes presented in a jewelry-style box.

But this pocket camera is about much more than beauty. Its high-end technical features include a ZEISS lens, full HD 1080/60p video with manual controls and a 3.6x optical zoom. The camera’s larger-than-average point and shoot sensor enables the user to capture stunning detail, and its wide-range ISO sensitivity makes it possible to shoot in almost any light. Photographers who want more technical control can opt to use manual settings.

As Dr. Hansen notes, “The world has never seen a compact camera like this before.”
