I saw on an online auction site the sale of a Hasselblad Zeiss Planar 110mm f2 lens. It was being sold by a German seller and the price they were asking for it was much less than the Japanese dealers. However, there was a reason for the low price.

I said I would test out Ilford XP2 C41 film cross processed in E6 and this is what I discovered. Apart from marking up the film going to the lab that this C41 film was to be processed in E6, I wanted to check with them that I wasn’t going to mess up their chemicals … Continue reading Ilford XP2 →
My final film review is the Fujichrome Provia 100F Professional transparency slide film.

But these results mean that I will be relying on how others are using the films and not the exact way I … Continue reading Kodak Professional Ektachrome Film E100 →
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 light box. 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 … 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 →
