Question about Hasselblad 555ELD Medium Format Camera

1 Answer

Hasselblad 555ELD My attached Digital Back has play in it. It does not seat firmly against the body. It can wiggle or pull outward by 1 mm. This would change the focus by the amount of play, but in most of my photos, the Depth of Field seems to take care of the anomoly. gshiba_yvr@msn.com

I would check the top latch plate first. They do have a tendency to become loose. The latch points at the base could be slightly bent too.

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 can't seem to get the knob for film advancing off the camera body


There should be a small slide-switch on the wind knob itself. If you slide it back, the knob will rotate backward slightly and pop off the body.

I have a hasselblad 503cx. when i hit the shutter button, the back part of the lens opens (where the film is) but the lens shutter is closed. when i let go, the lens opens and the back closes.


The proper order of exposure should be:

Curtain opens/Lense stops down (unless wide open)
Lense shutter closes
When releasing button, curtain closes
When winding, lense shutter opens

If this isn't what's happening, something is wrong. There is only a simple mechanical screw connection between body and lense, so it'd have to be an issue with the gears in the body.

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.

I have a mamiya RZ Pro two and I am looking to find a digital back for it. If you could offer any guidance and advice I would be very greatful as there seems to be very little help for th RZ film...


Currently . You need a digital back adapter (approx.$1500.00+ US) then the digital back itself (Approx. 25,000+ US). yes that is correct!. THe RZ67 Pro II needs the DM56 adaptor then the DM 56 back itself. Why not check out the all new RZ22 (22mp) or the RZ33(33mp). The RZ22 is approximately $12,000.00 US and the RZ33 around $18,000.00. Hasselblad also make a 39 and a 50mp digital medium format, expect to pay 2-3 times that of a Mamiya. For a 35mm type dSLR, Nikon just introduce the D3X with 24.5 megapixals. The body alone runs anywhere from $6,500-$8000 US.

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.

Unsharpness


if you can acquire sharp image with your 80mm, but not the 50mm and 120mmmm, there is no problem with your camera body, i.e. lens-flange to film plane. but how come you can not manage to get a sharp spot anywhere from the full turn of focusing rings with your 50mm and 120mm, unless the lens units inside these 2 lenses shifted. i doubt this happened to both lenses simultaneously?

if you are sure that your lenses have problem, send them for focusing test, since they are good and expensive lenses.
