Description:


The Hasselblad 500C is a fully mechanical camera. This means it does not require batteries to operate the shutter.


It uses V-mount lenses, giving you access to an astounding arsenal of lenses. This camera comes with the classic Zeiss Planar 80mm f2.8, a ridiculously sharp lens that's a breeze to use, too.

The camera that went to space: the Hasselblad 500C. A classic camera that deserves the highest praise.

Introduced in 1957, the Hasselblad 500C was a revolutionary camera in its design, ease of use and build quality. The now-ubiquitous modular design started with this camera. Change the viewfinder, change the film back mid-shoot, ... With the 500C, you can switch them around like it's nothing. Customise it to your taste.

There's heaps more we could write about this icon of a camera: how the leaf shutter allows for flash sync at all speeds, how satisfying the shutter sound is, and many more things besides. But the success and fame of the camera speaks for itself: it's a beauty you need to experience for yourself.

PS: this camera comes with a pistol grip. You too can now look like a New York journalist from the 1950s!
