Hasselblad to launch CMOS sensor-based, medium format camera

Bengtson adds: “We believe this will provide a highly compelling option for professional photographers who prefer a more versatile camera that enables them to immediately embrace a wider range of photo disciplines while still encapsulating the exceptionally high-end image quality associated with Hasselblad.” Hasselblad expects to release the new camera in March.
