Hasselblad Lunar Camera

The Hasselblad Lunar Camera is the Ferrari of its genre. A real beast of a photo taker, it features a 24 megapixel CMOS sensor and comes standard with an 18-55mm focal-range lens. Though its tech specs are impressive, what you're really paying for is the build quality. Its Italian design is constructed with materials like mahogany, leather, and gold. A.k.a: Not your average point and shoot available at Best Buy.


Two other things of note: Neil Armstrong shot the first images on the moon with a Hasselblad 500EL, so much like the Omega Speedmaster, it has that untouchable "this was good enough for outer-space" cool factor. Second, if you're willing to throw around some extra cash, the folks at Hasselblad can even custom build the Lunar Camera to your liking. So if you'd only accept Tuscan leather or have a thing for platinum---they've got you covered.


Priced at $7,000, camera enthusiasts with deep pockets you can head over to their website to order.
