DJI Take Over Hasselblad
With the CES event in Las Vegas buzzing with product announcements, there has been other news buzzing around the convention centre about corporate takeovers and company dealings that has caught us quite by surprise.
It’s already been a significant period in Hasselblad’s long history, with CEO Perry Oosting steering the ship from troubled times, to what has been looking like a much brighter future with the H6 camera and the development of the company’s brand new X1D mirrorless medium format system. After acquiring a minority of Hasselblad shares in November 2015, the Chinese drone giant appears to have taken on the majority stake in a recent turn of events.

Beyond this, the company had also launched an interesting product under license with Motorola and their MotoMods offshoot, with the TrueZoom camera.
Hasselblad’s recent announcement, the X1D
Right now, there’s little more to report, but knocking on the door of DJI’s public relations team, we received the following [perhaps, slightly inevitable] message:
“We have no further news about DJI’s partnership with Hasselblad. We will continue to work together to push forward world-class imaging to creators around the world.”
