Hasselblad and its mine

Post by mark dyson » Wed Apr 21, 2010 8:02 pm

Just over 12 months ago I posted a comment about wanting a Hasselblad. One year on and a 500cm with 80mm Carl Zeiss lens, waist level finder and 2 film backs is now in my camera bag and ready to go. The camers is in excellent condition in black and silver, every thing is manuel and no exposure meter, so its back to the old way of doing things. Life will be square from now on and in black and white.

The Carl Zeiss 80mm lens for Hassleblad is probably the finest lens ever made.

It makes me feel like getting my Leica out, and taking some real photos. Nostalgia looming large on the horizon, as well as brilliant piccys. Best of luck with it, and don,t forget to insure it. Alan
