120 manual focus Hasselblad V mount medium format camera released by Hasselblad in the autumn of 1957 and manufactured until 1970. Initiated the change to use leaf shutters located inside the lenses instead of focal plane shutters inside the camera (as on the older 1600F and 1000F). Two designs were produced; the first from 1957 to 1959 and the second onward until 1970. The first design has a small pin inside the lens mount that will prevent newer CF lenses from mounting correctly. The pin was removed on the second version. Does not have interchangeable focus screens like the later models. Metal body available in silver.

  • Shutter: Uses leaf shutters housed in the lenses
  • Size: 99 x 99 x 96mm
  • Weight: 463g (body only)

Manual focus normal lens made for Hasselblad V series 120 SLRs by Carl Zeiss. The lens lacks the Carl Zeiss name due to legal issues after World War II but it was made in the West German Carl Zeiss Oberkochen factory. Otherwise, the lens is identical to the Carl Zeiss 80mm f2.8 Planar of the era. Metal body available in silver.

  • Opton 80mm f2.8 PL Oberkochen

Hasselblad V System

The Hasselblad V system consists of a variety of 6x6 medium format cameras that began production in 1948. These bodies were produced, with many iterations, until 2013. All Hasselblad V cameras use medium format (generally 120) roll film and produce 6x6cm square images.

The first cameras of the V system, the 1600F and 1000F, used in-body focal plane shutters. While they were successful, issues with reliability and fragility, as well as user desire to sync flash more easily, prompted Hasselblad to switch to lens-based leaf shutters.

The first Hasselblad with a leaf shutter was the 500C in 1957. These lenses, fitted with Synchro Compur shutters, proved incredibly robust, reliable, and popular. NASA even brought these cameras to the moon, as Hasselblad loves to remind us! The famous ”Earthrise” photo, with the Earth rising over the horizon of the moon, was taken with a modified Hasselblad 500EL and 250mm lens.

For the next 60 years Hasselblad cameras would stand as the definitive modular SLR experience. Despite innovations from companies like Mamiya, Zenza Bronica, and Rolleiflex, the Hasselblad V system was the bar to reach in terms of build/image quality.

Hasselblad V cameras have access to a wide array of Carl Zeiss lenses as well as a series of interchangeable backs, allowing the cameras to shoot 6x6, 6x4.5, and 35mm panoramic. There are even digital backs that can turn your 60 year old Hasselblad into a modern digital camera!
