Oh sweet baby…. the Hasselblad 6×6


My new Hasselblad 6×6 is now home and I headed out to shoot a test roll. It is in better condition than what was described on ebay which is always a bonus. It’s been a while since shooting with one of these so I had to work a few things out, Hasselblad owners will know what I mean. Going to change the viewfinder as it is the wrong one for what I want and it’s replacement should be here this week.

Just listening to the sound of the gates opening and the shutter counting down is awesome, no battery’s, no histogram, no long exposure noise, no sensor dust, no real focusing involved… just find a composition, select an fstop and set your exposure time… thats it. !!

    • There is no internal thread on the lens so you have to hand hold them. If you hung just the holder over the front you would probably get vignetting quIte badly. So hand holding is the way too go.
