Hasselblad StellarHasselblad has announced their new, large-sensor compact camera, the Stellar. Like the Sony NEX 7 “inspired” Hasselblad Luna announced at the photokina trade show last year, the Stellar is a close cousin of the Sony RX100 large-sensor compact camera (20.2-megapixel 1-inch sensor, 3.6x (28-100mm) f/1.8 Zeiss-branded lens). In fact, it would appear that the only significant difference is the rather unique hand grip which is available in your choice of six different wood choices (Padouk, Olive, Zebra, Mahogany, Wenge and Walnut) or carbon fiber.

Something interesting? Or a marketing gimmick on the same level as all those “special edition” M cameras that Leica used to put out?

Hard to say. But you can make up your own mind at the dedicated Stellar website.
