Hasselblad new pricing - up to 40% off
« on: September 24, 2008, 10:50:17 AM »

I just received an e-mail from Hasselblad @ their new pricing structure. Dropping their prices up to 40%. It is a little confusing, but I am not sure whether H3DII-31 still remains at $17,999. & what other products prices now are, with new discounts?
  Anybody including the dealers have a grasp on the new pricing structure?
     Thanks

I received the same email.
What does this mean?
"Secondly, by significantly lowering the retail price we are able to remove the necessity of a trade-up program..."

Also if what FrançoisTT posted is the new pricing, Ummmm....is that lower???

I just got a post card in the mail that offers the H3DII-31 for  $15,995  and goes on to say that if you buy it now you can get 12 months interest free and no payments for 12 months.   (guess its body only?)

I do applaud this new strategy since it will open up not only the primary market for MFDB but probably will also fuel the 2nd hand market.

Glad I agreed upon upgrading a couple of weeks ago

Has no-one else noticed that Hasselblad has apparently announced a new king-of-the-hill model (for  resolution and sensor size) in the most amazingly understated way, an emailed price list:
Quote
> H3DII-60 - (Dalsa 40,2x53,7 / 60,1Mp) : 22.995 €HT (Q1/2009)
[{POST_SNAPBACK}][/a]
And at king-of-the-hill affordability for that sensor size, too!

If this is for real, it sounds like the same "Full Frame 645 format" sensor as in the Phase One P65+ back --- making the talk of Phase One having an exclusive on that sensor, and of it being a Phase One-Dalsa collaboration seem a bit of an "exaggeration".


P.S. I just found official confirmation for this news:

Ha, Hasselblad's marketing guys are just too funny, calling it full frame 2 years ago (the viewfinder was FF actually) and now not being happy with P1 calling their sensor FF. Anyway...
Interesting times if these prices are true.
Went to a french shop to check € prices:
http://www.lemoyenformat.com/Neuf/MFnu.htm  (in french)
Funny thing, they are "inspired" by this forum, James, scroll down to the P21 ad to find a screenshot of your comment over here.
If Hassy bring down the prices, the others will have to follow. Maybe this will be at the same time the end of the upgrade system.

"To achieve its compact form, the light projection of the lens has been designed for the ‘48mm full format’ sensor of the H3DII-39 and H3DII-50.  At the wide-angle setting, in particular, Hasselblad’s designers have balanced improvements in lens performance with a slightly greater distortion and vignetting as these are eliminated by Hasselblad’s Digital APO Correction (DAC) without any compromise on quality.  The outcome is a powerful tool that zooms from an impressive 83 degree, wide-angle to just beyond the fringes of a normal lens."

What happens to the 28mm and this lens when the new sensor 60mp H3D comes out? Isn't the sensor larger on that one?

Well if Mamiya/ Phase don't get their stupid Leaf shutter lens they have been promise out into the market before the end of the year.. I would certainly consider going with Hassleblad considering the price drop...:+}

Of Course a nice new 5DII will come before that....:+}

I think the medium format guys have gauged us enough and now it is time for them to suffer!!

Bring on the Competition...

-----------------------------------------------------

Looks like Hasselblad is attempting to flex some muscle and lay waste to Phase One, Leaf, and Sinar profit margins, and especially newcomer Leica with its new S2.

A very interesting strategy on Hasselblad's part to make a "poison pen" announcement of their upcoming 60MP sensor (Q1/2009) at a price point of around $33,724.33 USD (direct conversion of Euros to USD) undercutting the potential volume of sales of Phase One's P65+ first to market "645 MFDB" (Q4/ 2008) and its initial price point of approx $39,413.00 USD.

And that the Hasselblad price will include the HD3II camera and 80mm lens as well as the 60MP Back!

There is a very serious marketing battle in progress!

Will Phase One respond and adjust their pricing structure to be more competitive?

Is the Leica S2 product announcement providing fuel to Hasselblad's price reduction too?  And will Leica have to adjust their "stratospheric" pricing on their new S-System camera and lenses before they even get out of the gate?

Will Nikon join in this crazy fray with their rumored MX product? And what of Canon?

Folks, don't turn that dial; stay tuned for the next exciting episode!

Plus Hasselblad has a full lens line up! I don't understand why anyone would wait for other manufacturers to get their but in gear? How many years have we been waiting for new MF digital cameras? It's been like watching paint dry. Good move Hasselblad!
