    Hasselblad sighting

    In the US, I just saw a Trilipex advertisement with a photographer using a Hasselblad with a waist level finder. Then they show him with large mounted prints on display. The camera had a film back.

    Now that Hasselblads are showing up in TV ads, we can expect a new surge in their cult status and an astronomical increase in prices for used gear. The resulting increase in film sales will prompt film manufacturers to double their output and film prices will fall like winter rain.

    I have a Hasselblad and I'm too ugly to be a model. LOL

    A lot of high end pro photographers actually do have agents who help them get work. Apparently the commissions are outweighed by the work the agent brings in.

    I just saw the commercial. I am pretty sure it is a Hasselblad 1600 being used with a giant, overkill tripod.

    here's the video

    It's interesting that they made all the simulated shots square format. Certainly appropriate to the prop camera, but not something that most viewers would pick up on. B&W prints on the wall was a nice touch too.

    The prints on the wall are square.
