...has anyone had any issues with the quality of the Hasselblad H2?
I enjoy my H2 system very much because of this:
*The viewfinder is fantastic, you see everything very clear and bright
*Never worry about flash sync (my pocketwizards work at every speed... some underexposure at 1/800, but that is just to power up a bit on the heads.)
*The lenses are wonderful, manual override without any swithches. Great correctionsoftware! Dont like the zoom because of weight and bulk, but my 35, 100, 120 and 210 are great.
*A lot of customization is possible, much like the custom funcions of a Canon (but not that extensive.)
I dislike my H2 slightly for these reasons:
*There is still no waist level viewfinder (I have one on order, but it has not shown up yet.)
*Hasselblad uses a long time to deliver tings (lenses, matte screens, etc.)
*Batteries last short, about 250 frames (although i use a CFH-39 back, and it drains the cameras battery, so you might find this to last much longer with a phase or leaf back.)
*The camera sometimes loses the connection to bits and pieces (this has not happened lately though, maybe my last firmware update fixed the problem?)
*The camera is no looker, it shoud be black, and have a more boxy apperance with less automation (i know i contradicted myself there, but hey, im only human
As far as build quality is concerned, I have had no issues whatsoever, but i still think the overall feel of buttons and the body could be more reassuring, but Im a Leica/Linhof/V-system lover, so who am I to talk...
