This is not a problem necessarily, but i cant seem to find this info on the net. what type of lens is compatible with the Hasselblad 553 ELX? Can the 500 C/M lenses work?


All C and CF lenses manufactured since 1957 will work on your 553ELX. The only Hasselblad lenses which will not work are the F types manufactured after 1976 for those bodies which incorporate a focal plane shutter.

I hope that my reply has been clear and useful, if so then please spare a moment to rate my answer.

I pressed the shutter release button while attaching the lens to the body. Now my Hasselblad is jammed. The diaphram is closed, the shutter crank knob is turned about halfway, and the lens is stuck half...


On my Hasselblad 501 CM, I have never encountered this problem. As expensive as these cameras are, and delicate, I wouldn't chance it. I would contact the Hasselbad company and ask them to fix it for you.

I would try the above link to contact hasselblad's tech support if I were you.

Good luck on this.

Adapt a Hassie 500el/m to a Imacon ixpress back V 4.7


The Hasselblad ELM does not need adapting to use the Imacon or hasselblad digital back  the following backs fit on the ELM and can be triggered with a cable that should be supplied with the back. 
Hasselblad V96c 16mp square format back  Hasselblad CFV 16mp square format back with CF slot Hasselblad CFVII 16mp square format back with CF slot + larger screen
the following backs will work but need to have a V adapter plate fitted to the back 
96c 16mp square format back  132c 22mp 645 format back  528c 22mp 645 format back with Multishot option CF-22 22mp 645 format back with CF slot CF-22 MS 22mp 645 format back with CF slot & Multishot option CF-39 39mp 645 format back with CF slot CF-39 MS 39mp 645 format back with CF slot & Multishot option

When fitting and digital back to an older camera the best advice is to get the camera body serviced to ensure that the back mount is correct as the digital backs require a better fit than the film backs did. If the mount is off it will cause back or front focus.

Whats the diff between the 503cw and the 503cxi?


The only real difference between the two is that the 503cxi have a too short, vignetting, mirror. The 503cw have a long, non-vignetting mirror. The vignetting is only noticeable in the viewfinder, and when using lenses 150mm or longer. 
Both bodies will accept winder CW, and both have TTL flash metering.

503CW with leaf back


Can you shoot rear curtain flash modes?

If not, try this:

Advance the camera.
Open up the shutter(set mirror lock-up). You'll have to remove the Winder CW to do this.
Push black Tap up to open up the shutter. Don't worry, lens is still closed.
You'll not see anything from the viewfinder, just black.
Trip the shutter button.
Now, check the images.
What do you get?
Try shooting under one second in low light.
Battery is new and not over 5 years old?

Underwater housing parts


Hello Hasselblad -

I have the same housing, and have all of these parts. However, I need to keep them so that I can still operate my rig.

I have a few suggestions:

1) create and save some searches in ebay that will alert you to this stuff when it eventually will surface

2) contact Subaquatic Camera in Salinas, CA. My understanding from one of their techs is that he fabricated at least some of these parts for another client. Perhaps he still has the machining specs and could make them up for you

3) contact me if you need photographs of the parts for purposes of providing to a machine shop to have them made for you (earmstro a t hotmail d o t com)

And for anyone else who has parts for these housings, I am looking for two different parts that go with a SWC camera in this housing:

- the fitting that mounts in the flash shoe, that engages with the front section mechanicals to trip the shutter release

- the film advance adapter for a SWC

I would most like to purchase these parts but if someone can just help me out with photographs (and better yet, dimensions taken with a micrometer), I would be most grateful as that will be enough information to go have the parts I need made.

thanks,
-Eric

Which Hasselblad?


There were several versions of the 500C/M as production was over many years. The 501C had all the latest revisions of the 500 C/M series to make it the better choice. You'll get more $ for the 501 for this reason. Later versions of the 500C/M had a much better coil spring to control the mirror for starters. Unless you are going to use this camera for daily professional use, either would be a reliable camera. A good way to check the amount of use on any Hasselblad is to look at the back of the camera where the film magazine mounts. A good solid black with no shiny spots on the plate would indicate little use. There are raised lines around the aux. shutter opening that will wear as film back are removed and replaced.
