Hasselblad 2000 FC

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
