The Best MF Camera System
Medium format market is shrinking these days. 500C/M is becoming the ultimate Hasselblad entry system. Most of the professionals out there are using digital backs on their V system or lean towards H system instead. So there are plenty of professionally used and well-cared cameras and bodies. I mean, Kiev 88 might be attractive several years ago since they are much cheaper. But now, hassy is only a few hundred bucks higher but with more reliable and durable construction. This 500C/M camera features interchangeable focus screen so that you can put the ones you need. Hasselblad lenses are top notch Zeiss construction and design. It is the best out there. Pick up one today and start shooting, you will be amazed. 35mm is easy but 6x6 MF is way too cool.

Compared to newer, more feature rich Hasselblads, the 500 C/M "Classic" is beautifully minimal, yet recent enough to find in great cosmetic & functional shape. The "Classic" was sold as a kit in the late eighties and early nineties, paired with a black 80mm F2.8 Zeiss lens & A12 film back.

Luddite and proud of it

From the day it was made there has been none better. The Hasselblad camera is a classic among medium format photography which has stood the test of time. It is unequaled in it's field for ease of use and mechanical stability. Hasselblad had the forethought to build their cameras such that a 1965 Camera body can be used with a Hasselblad 2011 model Camera lens. One can use a 1965 Camera magazine on a 2011 Camera body. You will not find a better camera anywhere.

One of the BEST CAMERAS ever made!
If you still shooting film; you just can not beat this camera. I bought one in 1978 and it cost me over $1200.00 The camera I just bought was far cheaper than that. Doesn't seem to have had a lot of wear or use put on this camera. The Accessories for the camera or dirt cheap. (At the Moment) This camera is put together like a Rolex watch, and I don't think you can find another as well built. I like everything about this camera. Now some will find it to be a bit heavy, and they can not get use the EV settings on the shutter ring, but when using a light meter I like looking at one number. Transferring that to the camera and you are done.
