Hasselblad’s strategy of sprucing up Sony cameras must be paying off — that would explain Photo Rumors‘ apparent leak of the Stellar, a Hasselblad take on the RX100. The already high-end compact cam will reportedly switch to a tan metallic body and offer several choices of exotic grip material, including carbon fiber and padouk wood. There’s no mention of functional upgrades over the Sony original, though. As with the Lunar, we’re more likely to see a price hike instead — Photo Rumors claims the Stellar should launch on July 26th for between $ 1,600 to $ 3,200, which would limit it to particularly well-heeled photographers.
