Hassleblad

 
Victor Hasselblad AB is a Swedish manufacturer of medium format cameras, photographic equipment and image scanners based in Gothenburg, Sweden. The company originally became known for its classic analog medium format cameras that used a waist level viewfinder. Perhaps the most famous use of the Hasselblad camera was during the Apollo missions when the first humans landed on the moon. Almost all of the still photographs taken during these missions used modified Hasselblad cameras. In 2016, Hasselblad introduced the world's first digital compact mirrorless medium format camera, the X1D-50c, changing the portability of medium format photography. Hasselblad only produces about 10,000 cameras a year out of a small three story building.
