Whatever the marketing slogan adopted it needs to be in Russian, Mandarin and Arabic.

It kind of makes me wonder if there isn't something horribly wrong with the H5. Like they knew it would be terribly picked over, so they came up with the Lunar as a distraction.

Anyway, I'll put this out there. For $1500, I will hand-carve you a wooden shell for your NEX 7 out of fine Brazilian walnut. For an extra $1500, I will do it with my teeth. For another $2000, I will carve it with my teeth in your home
.


What are you gonna be wearing? Can my mom watch, too? If it's a mankini, sign me up.

(definition of mankini)


Mankini? I'm in. I'll pay $100 more!

Uh, okay, but you're going to have to give me some time to get into "Magic Mike" shape. Like a couple years.

That would only take a couple of months with the Insanity Workout.

Note: I do not condone mankini's.

Ha! No kidding! Both P90X and Insanity will let you barf your way to good shape in a few months. It's very difficult and remarkable. Still, I wouldn't be caught dead with the Lunar!

Just in case through long experience with Hasselblad the serious photography company you've elected to give them the benefit of doubt, well doubt no more, Hassy has (unofficially) lost their marbles.

Sony Alpha Rumours say "no joke" - FWIW - apparently Hassy is planning a Blingified RX100 point and shoot.

Michael, I think that was posted on one of the other threads re. the Hassy. There was mention that they would offer 3 similarly designed cameras - A mirrorless, a P&S, and an SLR. I believe they (Hassy) are actually trying to use this concept as a selling point, which is of course ridiculous, but in their way of thinking apparently it makes sense.

Hassleblad:
- "All of your cameras will match"
- "Our cameras are so ugly they will make anything look beautiful"


I shudder to think that they will also skin the A99.

They certainly got people talking but this might be one of those no-news is better news situations.

I am truly in awe of Hasselblad. Imagine investing all those resources into a practical joke. This is well within the domain of avant-garde art. It's so provocatively wrong in every aspect (from the exotic wood to the cheap 18-55 lens and the price tag) that it has to be deliberate. I think it will go down in history as a work of art comparable to Duchamp's "Fountain".

denoir, that's their only way out. Call it a practical joke, a new variety of corporate performance art.

Just call it off.

(For the record, I don't believe they intended their bling-NEX to be funny nor expect it to be ridiculed so soundly and from virtually every corner. That's what makes this so funny - it's a tragic comedy in every sense.)

YESSSS!

The Hasselblad Lunar - I'd rather be caught with a Mankini!

Proven comedy, but it's only tragic if it makes money.

P.S. Good link, denoir.

Speaking of great slogans...

That's a ringing endorsement if I've ever heard one. Anorexia via workout.

I'm okay with them as long as there's some flare on the straps.

There is good on every page of this thread.

If this all turned out to be an elaborate hoax, and then they announce a digital X-Pan... it would be so BRILLIANT!!

You joke, but I just saw the infomercial for Insanity the other day and a girl on there says: "I did the workout the first day... then I puked". No pain, no gain!

I love how in that picture there's a line to the "H"-logo as if it's one of the significant features of the camera.
