Beautiful Hasselblad SWC Super Wide camera with 38mm f4.5 Carl Zeiss Biogon lens


I am a Professional Photographer selling this item from my personal collection.  I take very good care of my equipment, and this particular camera has seen very little use.  It's time for me to make room for other things, so my loss is your gain!


This is a beautiful Hasselblad "Super Wide C" medium-format camera with an incredibly sharp Carl Zeiss 38mm f4.5 Biogon lens, perfect for a user or collector!  It is ideal for the hobbyist or professional, perfect for architecture, landscape, fine art, and street photography.  It includes the original 38mm viewfinder and a LIKE NEW A12 (12 exposure) 120 film back (with matching insert and dark slide).  The camera only shows a few minor paint scratches here and there, and some light dust from storage.  The optics are clean with no scratches, marks, or fungus.  It focuses smoothly, and the shutter speeds & aperture all work properly with no problems.  I'll also throw in a thin Hasselblad neck strap (not pictured).


The Super Wide C is a 2 1/4" x 2 1/4" wide-angle camera.  Based on view camera lens design, the permanently attached Ziess Biogon 38mm lens with 90° diagonal angle of view is a true wide angle type. The lens is fully corrected for curvilinear distortion, and produces architectural view camera quality, with superb corner to corner sharpness (even at full aperture and at all distances).  The SWC has a fully synchronized leaf shutter, exposure value scale, automatic depth-of-field indicators, a spirit level, a top-mounted release button, a crank for simultaneous film transport and shutter cocking, and a quick-attachment shoe with 3/8" and 1/4" tripod threads.



Aperture Range: f/4.5-22

Angle of View: 90 degrees

Number of elements: 8

Focusing Range: 12 inches to infinity

Synchro-Compur shutter: B, 1-1/500 sec.

This camera will provide decades of use and will long outlast any of today's digital cameras.


The pictures you see here are of the actual item, taken by me.


Sorry, I don't have the proper lens cap, but the lens will be protected for shipping.


Camera serial is # USW 9942.

Lens serial is # NR4870257.

A12 Back serial is # 30EV27524 (with matching film insert).

International bidders welcome.


Shipping will be $25 within the continental U.S., or Actual Cost to your location via US Postal Service Global Priority Mail for the rest of the world.


Payment is by PayPal only.  MAKE SURE YOUR PAYPAL ADDRESS IS CORRECT, as I will ship ONLY to your PayPal address, no exceptions.


I will professionally package your item securely with bubble wrap and peanuts, not newspaper.


YOU are responsible for your country's customs fees and taxes; I have no knowledge of or control over those.  It is IMPERATIVE that you check with your country's Customs Office to determine what these additional costs will be PRIOR to bidding!  Don't ask me - I don't know!  These costs can be considerable, and even prohibitive!  Be WARNED!


All international shipments are insured for the full value of the merchandise and marked as merchandise.  I will not mark "gift", or lower the value on the customs forms for the purpose of circumventing customs fees, duties, or other fees related to the shipment of merchandise.  The insurance is based on the declared value, so it protects me as well as you.

If you're interested in an estimate of how much shipping will cost, you can look it up as easily as I can:   See the US Postal Service web site.

Global Priority Mail.  The point of origin will be Williamsburg, VA  23185,  USA.


I have a 14 day money back return policy if not completely satisfied (less shipping costs of course) so bid with confidence.  INTERNATIONAL buyers BEWARE - If you return the item, I cannot refund your country's taxes, customs fees, shipping costs, VAT, etc., and these can be considerable - sometimes many hundreds of dollars!  Keep this in mind!


Thanks for looking and happy bidding!
