Hasselblad just made a very exciting announcement for very rich, very enthusiastic photography nerds. And I have to admit, that even a not-so-wealthy nerd like me is aching at the site of the new X1D mirrorless camera. The selling point (if something this expensive can be said to have selling points) is that it has big medium format camera guts in a lightweight mirrorless body.

I can't put this Hasselblad 500EL in my pocket. And I can't use it to snap shots on a daily basis — it will cost a gazillion dollars on film and development. But I would love to have one at home. Just to look at it. It's a work of art. And it was used in the Apollo program. You know. On the moon.
