Description

The Hasselblad 500 C/M is a legendary medium format camera renowned for its exceptional build quality, mechanical precision, and modular design. Here are some key features and details about this classic camera:

Key Features

  1. Medium Format: Uses 120/220 roll film, producing 6×6 cm (2.25×2.25 inch) square negatives.
  2. Modular System: The camera body, film back, viewfinder, and lens are all interchangeable, allowing for great flexibility and customization.
  3. Lens System: Uses Carl Zeiss lenses, known for their outstanding sharpness and optical quality.
  4. Mechanical Operation: Fully mechanical operation, requiring no batteries for basic functionality.
  5. Interchangeable Backs: Film backs can be changed mid-roll, allowing for different film types to be used without finishing a roll.
  6. Focusing Screen: Equipped with a focusing screen that can be replaced, often used with a waist-level finder or prism finder.
  7. Build Quality: Extremely durable and reliable, with a robust metal construction.

Historical Context

The Hasselblad 500 C/M was introduced in 1970 as an improvement over the earlier 500 C model, with the “M” standing for “modified” or “modernized.” It quickly became a favorite among professional photographers for studio work, portraiture, and even in some cases, landscape photography.

Usage Tips

  • Careful Handling: While rugged, the precise mechanical parts require careful handling and maintenance.
  • Regular Maintenance: Periodic servicing by a professional is recommended to keep the shutter and film transport mechanisms in optimal condition.
  • Film Loading: Loading film backs can be tricky at first; practice to ensure smooth operation.
  • Focusing: Use the magnifying glass in the waist-level finder for critical focusing, especially when using wide apertures.

Collectibility and Legacy

The Hasselblad 500 C/M is highly regarded among collectors and photographers alike, often considered a work of art both in terms of its photographic results and its physical design. It holds a significant place in photographic history, and its images have been used in numerous iconic works, including NASA’s documentation of the moon landings.

Whether you’re a professional photographer, a serious enthusiast, or a collector, the Hasselblad 500 C/M offers a unique and rewarding experience that few cameras can match.
