2

In today's edition of great, rare cameras we wish we all have, we have this drool-worthy limited edition Hasselblad 503CW Gold Supreme. Details after the jump!

Back in 1998, Hasselblad released the limited edition medium format “Hasselblad 503WC Gold Supreme” to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the release of the very first Hasselblad camera to the public. A Hasselblad is coveted enough on its own, yet what makes the Gold Supreme extra special is that only 500 units were released.

Now in comes this camera, reportedly the 500th unit, which is currently being sold on eBay by user n.i.k.o.n for a Buy It Now price of $9,999.99. As of this writing, only one offer has been made so far.

This camera is said to be in mint condition, with the seller boasting that it’s still unused and is in fact still in its box. With red burgundy leatherette on a 24-karat gold-plated body, it comes with a treasure trove-like collection of other items including gold 80mm f/2.8 lens and A12 magazine. It was said to be owned by Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada-based photographer Bruce Monk who, according to the listing and this cached press release, received the very last Gold Supreme unit as part of winning the overall first prize in the Hasselblad Open Photo Contest.

The seller further claims that he got the camera from Monk “a lot of years ago.”

    A Salute to the Masters: Sports Through A Plastic Lens (A Tribute to David Burnett)

    The great American photographer David Burnett is famous for his unusual photos of sports competitions. He uses a tilt-shift lens to create miniature fakes, or a simple Holga camera to shoot in black and white.

This year, I stayed at a beautiful one in the south of Italy. Here is a series of photos which I received a few days ago from the excellent LomoLab service, taken with my Sprocket Rocket.
