Medium Film format

Haudi hou! I recently bought my first medium format film camera. It’s called Hasselblad500 C/M. I have to say I love this beast! It takes very sharp and detailed photos, Only downside is that it’s heavy and bulky carry around & challenging to operate because it’s full manual nature. It doesen’t even have a build in light meter, so one have to use seperate lightmeter or the Sunny 16 rule when taking photos. Here are my first Sample film roll pictures.

Here’s some basic info about the camera. The Hasselblad 500C was first introduced in 1957 by the Victor Hasselblad AB, replacing the original focal plane shutter models 1600F and 1000F. It was replaced by the 500C/M (M for modified according to the factory), featuring an interchangeable focusing screen and an improved automatic back, the A-series film magazines.

Following the design of the previous models, the Victor Hasselblad AB made the V-series completely modular: Not only the lenses, but also the winding crank, the viewfinder and the film magazine are exchangeable during normal operation of the camera. Hasselblad came with a 12-shot magazine for 120 film.
