The 500 C/M Medium Format Camera

Produced from 1970-1989, the Hasselblad 500 C/M consists of a body, lens, removable film magazine and interchangable viewfinders. Each lens incorporates its own leaf shutter. The 6 x 6 cm (2 1/4 x 2 1/4 in) square format eliminates the need to turn the camera sideways for landscape or portrait. Hasselblad cameras are primarily used for commercial and portrait photography.

Hasselblad makes a great camera. Unfortunately their lenses and accessories are priced absurdly high. I have recently purchased new, from England, one each of the last of the Bronica line. A SQ-B and a ETRSi. I am sure they will produce images just as sharp as the Hasselblad. Needless to say I am Camera Poor.

Just a great workhorse. Rugged and durable. Square is the only way to shoot.
