According to leaked images and news, Hasselblad plans to repackage the popular Sony RX100 camera with handgrips made from exotic material, put them both in a fancy box with a hinged lid and sells the rebadged Hasselblad Stellar for a cool $1600 to $3200.
The Sony RX100 is listed at $649.99. If we round that off to $650 and estimate the box at $50, then the handgrips are priced anywhere from $900 to $2500, probably making them the most expensive handgrips ever.
The Hasselblad Lunar adds an “H” handgrip to the Sony NEX-7. And, apparently, Hasselblad also intends to add an “H” handgrip to a Sony DSLT. Let’s see: Lunar, Stellar,… Solar?
