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.
