Default Hassleblad then and now

I was curious the other day and went to the Hasselblad site and they have some gorgeous equipment but when I looked up the prices I almost choked!

I mean prices went from $20k to mid $40k

Really??? $40k

So I went back for giggles and in 1980 a 500cm kit was approx $1500 which is about $5k in today's dollars. How did we get to $20 $30 $40k?

Are the digital camera versions worth up to 8xs the film version? I realize they are more complicated but I just can't believe the new version camera will take a picture that is 8xs better.

Some gorgeous photos came from those analogs.
