Hi Daniel,


Normally I appreciate your inputs on LUG but but: What was the purpose of
putting the parenthesis ?(typical)? between ?danish? and ?management? in
your make-shift translation of the article about the job cuts at
Hasselblad?s factory in G?teborgs-Posten? That word does not appear in the
original Swedish text, as far as I can reckon.


I am a Dane and I cannot help being just a little bit proud of seeing the
Danish ?sprinter? company Imacon involved in a merger with / take-over by
big big Hasselblad. And as you probably realise some trade-offs has to be
made in such situations: Which of the parties delivers the MD/CEO and the
Chairman of the Board of Director respectively and how do we start
capitalising on this very merger. 


Please don?t worry, so far I have been unable to get anywhere closer to the
Imacon products than ?glaring at the windows?. Recently however I acquired
Mamiya 645 Pro with interchangeable film back so maybe some time in the
future I might be able to go digital in MF thanks to Imacon/Hasselblad.


In the meantime I am happy with my MF gear also comprising a Mamiya TLR C220
plus of course my Leica IIIc and a couple of Hexar RF?s with a respectful
range of lenses. Hopefully also my time of lurking at the LUG will soon be


All the best,

Mads Christensen
