Question about Hasselblad 501CM Medium Format Camera
I have a hasselblad underwater housing. It is the blue one with yellow handles and I need these parts:
57355- toothed focusing ring
57363- toothed diaphram ring
57371- toothed shutter speed ring
57398- pin spanner
57428- film advance adapter
I tried calling hasselblad direct and they did not have the parts. If anyone knows where I might look to find these please email me.
Hi this is an old housing you have to make the parts yourself, film advance adapter, it is dificult to make one. But toothed diaphram and focusing ring is easy

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.
