Vintage Hasselblad 500C/M Camera w/ Carl Zeiss Planar 2.8/80 Lens, A12 Film Back. The Hasselblad 500 series began with the revolutionary 500C, one of the most iconic cameras in photographic history. Modified throughout the years, the 500 series cameras represent the pinnacle of Victor Hasselblad's V System.
The 500C was a marvel that still remains a classic in today's modern age. Its leaf shutter design allowed for flash synchronization at all shutter speeds with the use of electronic flash. It could also focus at full aperture thanks to an automatic aperture stop-down.
The build of the 500C was uncomplicated, and with the shutter in the lens instead of the camera body, this allowed for interchangeable lenses, film magazines, and viewfinders. The development of the 500C led to multiple versions with various modifications.
The 500C/M, launched in 1970, was fitted with an interchangeable focusing screen, including a prism viewfinder with a built-in exposure meter. AS IS government surplus item.
