No joke: New Adobe RAW converter supports the non existent Hasselblad Lunar.

adobe.

Adobe just announced the new Lightroom 4.4 RC and it supports a camera that is not on market yet…the Hasselblad Lunar. Usually Adobe adds a support of a camera weeks if not months after the camera release. So I was actually surprised to see the new support message. So when is the Hassleblad Lunar actually coming?

New cameras first look. And first popularity hint: Preorder insuccess in US?

The video on top shows the new camera preview posted by sonyelectronics. There is also a new NEX-3n image gallery at Dpreview and the full MTF graph form the new Zeiss lens at Sony US.

Whenever Sony launches new products I have the habitude to check the amazon rankings to see how big (or low) the preorders requests are. I checked the mirrorless (Click here), the DSRL (Click here) and the Lens (Click here) rankings and there is no sign at all from the new Sony stuff! The ranking isn’t a scientific tool but it may be a rough indication that these new cameras and lenses aren’t really what people was waiting for. Anyway it’s too early to make any reasonable analysis.

Meantime I re propose the preorder links with the new update Adorama links. Feel free to comment this post to add more links!!!:
