About Hasselblad

Ever since that day when Victor Hasselblad decided not to copy a German spy camera, but to improve it, they have consistently worked to develop and promote photography. Hasselblad has focused on the long term development of its camera family which is designed for one purpose – to bring the best cameras in the hands of the people who use them. This was the faith that guided Victor Hasselblad and it is the belief still guides the Hasselblad.

Hasselblad knows that there are never any shortcuts to quality. Quality is the result of an unwavering dedication and hard work. No other camera manufacturer comes even close to the standard Hasselblad. Their long collaboration with NASA is a tribute to the extraordinary quality that Hasselblad cameras possess.

Hasselblad’s mission, now as always, is:
To be the preferred choice among professional minded photographers.
