Panasonic Lumix GH4 4K-capable Mirrorless Camera

Can Stamp

Hasselblad HV DSLR

this is no vintage camera like the moon camera, but the Hasselblad HV DSLR should be as desirable if luxury imaging devices are right up your alley. for folks who are on the same page as a particular royalty who preferred not to be seen in a ‘people’s car’, then we supposed, a Sony won’t be fitting to your opulent lifestyle either and hence, the Hasselblad HV DSLR might just be the luxe camera you have been looking for. the HV is essentially a ‘remake’ of Sony’s full-frame A99 DSLR and so naturally, it shares identical specifications with the A99, including a 24.3MP full-frame Exmor CMOS sensor, dual AF system with 19 sensors and 102 AF point system, “a new” AF range control function, advanced full HD 50p progressive video recording with continuous AF and pro-style audio, built-in GPS, OLED Tru-Finder electronic viewfinder, a tilt-able 3-inch TFT LCD display, and the list goes on.
