A few weeks ago I had no idea what the Hasselblad V system consisted of. I knew the 500 series are the iconic cameras that everyone recognises. What I didn’t know was the existence of the 2000 and 200 series with their focal plane shutters. So what does this mean? Well, in the 500 series … Continue reading Hasselblad 2000 FC →
I got my first roll of film back from the lab. And as you can see, I also got myself a cheap A3 LED lightbox. Glad that there are no light leaks in the camera which was my main worry. My other worry was how the expired film would behave. It has done quite well … Continue reading First roll of film – part 2 →
I was trying to figure out the best way to make my Profoto B10 units work with my Hasselblad 500C/M. I have a Profoto Air remote dedicated for my Nikon cameras and PocketWizard remotes to fire my flash units. The PocketWizard Plus III has a 3.5mm mini jack socket so getting a mini jack to … Continue reading Profoto Air with a Hasselblad 500C/M →
I went to dig out my old lightbox that I purchased when I was still shooting film to view my first roll of film from the Hasselblad. Only problem is that I can’t find the transformer plug that came with it. Also it had been sitting in the shed over the years, so I have … Continue reading Lightbox →
I didn’t want to spend too much on film to just run through the Hasselblad to make sure everything is fine, so I got myself some expired film. What surprised me was how slow ISO 100 is in real life. For my first roll, I had to use some extra light which was lucky that … Continue reading First roll of film →
So here it is. I got a Hasselblad 500C/M and also a 150mm f4 lens that was on sale at London Camera Exchange. There are very limited places selling used film equipment and I’m not really willing to spend big money on the museum pieces. For whatever reason there is a big trend to shoot … Continue reading Hasselblad 500C/M →
I was just digging around my files and found the negatives I shot with the Hasselblad that I got to play with ages ago. From the looks of it, I must have had access to the camera around the year 2000. I’m pretty sure it wouldn’t have been earlier than that as I wouldn’t have … Continue reading Medium format →
I recently discovered that Hasselblad have launched a new camera – the 907X with the CFV II 50C back. What is exciting about it is that the digital back can fit on many of their V system cameras. And for those who don’t know what their V system is, it is the iconic square film … Continue reading Wish list – October 2020 →
I’ve been thinking about getting the Nikkor 85mm f2.8D PC-E Micro lens for sometime now. Playing with tilt shift is something that I have wanted to try. So with Nikon doing a 10% discount on DSLR lenses until the end of September 2020, I thought why not take the opportunity. As this is a Micro … Continue reading Nikkor 85mm f2.8D PC-E Micro lens →
I was watching this YouTube video by photographer Matt Irwin about the cameras he has owned during his career. Fascinating the cameras he had and the reasons why he got them. So what is my list of cameras that have shaped my career? Well, the first camera I can remember using, when I was a … Continue reading Down memory lane →
