Hasselblad H3D-39 Digital Medium Format Professional Camera

Dreaming of the Hasselblad but can’t afford its price up front? Now, maybe you can. For $700 per month (aargh!) you can rent the Hasselblad H3D-39 digital medium format camera through Calumet Photographic.

Calumet says the H3D-39 offers photographers the full benefits of a professional, medium format camera with a 6 x 4.5cm window as well as the ease of use of the best 35mm DSLRs. The camera comes with an 80mm lens, the HVD 90X viewfinder and a 39MP sensor unit.

No, you can’t just throw away $700 and rent it for one month. The deal is for 36 months; that means you’re going to cough up a total of $25,200 for three years (not that bad, really, considering that the H3D-39 kit is priced at $32,000). At the end of the 3-year lease you get to buy the H3D-39 for just one dollar, and it’s all yours.

Want another offer? offers the H3D-39 for a daily rental rate of $450. Make your dream come true.
