Hasselblad Ships Ferrari And Stainless Steel H4D Cameras

Any professional in the photography world knows the Hasselblad name. It has been around for years, and the company's cameras have been used in loads of magazine shoots, automobile shoots, etc. The H4D medium format family has been a staple of the company's line, and two new versions are being introduced today: a Ferrari version and a limited edition Stainless Steel version.


The H4D Ferrari Limited Edition Camera is limited to just 499 units, and it has an iconic Ferrari red paint scheme, a Ferrari logo and special box. On the other side, the Stainless Steel H4D-40 is the same as the standard version, but with a special enclosure. This is limited to 100 pieces. Pricing for both is pretty high; the Ferrari version will cost €21,499, while the Stainless version will cost between €13,990 and €14,990. Needless to say, if you have to ask about the pricing or usage scenario, these probably aren't for you.

Hasselblad Announces Pricing and Shipping Date for the H4D Ferrari Limited Edition Camera

26/11/2010 First announced at photokina, and received with great enthusiasm from Hasselblad and Ferrari fans, the exclusive H4D Ferrari Edition camera is now available to purchase for 21,499 Euros (+tax). This brand new model is dedicated to the new generation of photographers looking for the ultimate image quality, and will be produced in 499 units. A winning combination, the Hasselblad H4D Ferrari Limited Edition camera will have appeal to Ferrari and Hasselblad fans who appreciate the innovation, quality and design that symbolize both brands.

The H4D Ferrari Limited Edition is finished in Ferrari's unique color "rosso fuoco", and bears the legendary Racing Shield. The camera, which comes with an 80mm lens, is presented in an exclusively designed and engineered box with a glass top equally labeled with the distinctive Ferrari Racing Shield. Dual layers, one for the camera, with the lens and accessories housed in a separate lower level, are lined with a soft and rich material. This striking case is housed in a special handmade case and therefore is ideal for both storage and display.

Ha Ha!! Good One, but seriously ,the fact that their making 499 for the H4D Ferrari Limited Edition at those prices must mean that there's a big market for these Beast. Wow , 40 mega-pixels= very crisp sharp, highly detailed , immaculate photos.

Too bad it doesn't shoot video, with the size of the sensor,(almost twice the size of a full-frame 35mm DSLR sensor) I can just imagine how fantastic it would be, but off course that's not what the target audience is for.

Like the articles says "Any professional in the photography world knows the Hasselblad name", so the price is no object to the intended customer..
