The Swedish high-end camera maker Hasselblad continues its expansion into the consumer market with the introduction of its newest compact, point-and-shoot camera, the Stellar II. Though it shares most of the same impressive technical specifications as its predecessor, the Stellar, the camera features a number of significant upgrades. Newly integrated Wi-Fi and near-field communication technologies give it the ability to send images wirelessly to a smartphone, a tablet, or a computer. Its 3-inch, high-resolution screen can be titled 45 degrees downward or 84 degrees upward, granting the photographer a greater range of angles to shoot from. A multi-interface hot shoe allows the user to attach an external flash, a microphone, or other accessories.

Like the original Stellar and the Lunar before it, the $1,817 Stellar II is available with a number of different grip styles, including carbon fiber and three varieties of lacquered wood. (hasselblad.com)
