getting hasselblad-like colors without the camera

Does anyone know of any actions or the steps to get colors like you'd get from a hasselblaad? I'm too cheap to actually buy one.

I've seen other people get similar colors consistently using digital...

Any insight would be appreciated

It's good to ask how to get that look, but one note: these colorations have very little to do with the cameras that take them. One can easily find far different looks taken with the same camera.

Lighting.
Photoshop
There is an action i have but i didn't tested a lot, called "Hasselblad like" or "Hasselblad Effect", might be giving same results to any camera.

first one is from erwin olaf, one of the biggest & more talented photog out now.
he lights really well his pictures, count +/- 10 lights sometimes.

he directs his postprod, he got few retouchers for doin' that.
it's... photoshop. + a wicked raw file.

that's it.

I would assume it is going to be in 50 - 60 mm area (35mm film).

I'm always wondering why people believes that more is better... Erwin Olaf is nice, and I liked his photography also, but lighting all the place is just that, lighting all the place! There is nothing interesting on doing that... I'm wondering if Erwin Olaf is able to do excellent pictures just using one cheap 500 watts tungsten lamp of 2,50 dollars

WEll... Ignore the stylist and all the team. Just the photographer and the model (and the funny lamp!). I think lighting all the set is much easier than adding protagonism to something or manipulating the shadows and lights in order to get some result. Lighting the whole thing is quite commercial/advertisement though I like the Erwin's stuff, but I don't consider him a Light Master even if many people talks about him as he was a light master. I like the situations he creates and how the situation is lit. It reminds me to a russian painter. I think Dragan really do the thing with the lights
