I am sadly contemplating moving on my Hasselblad 500 C/M 50th Anniversary Kit.
The camera was purchased from a private collector and has had very limited use, hence the mint condition. It's quite a rare model so ideally would go to someone who is going to cherish it, not abuse it! That said, it's built like an absolute tank and will give many years of problem free use. Shutter is smooth and problem free, lens is clean & clear, aperture blades move with precise clicks and shutter speeds are spot on. Body, Lens, Waist Level Finder & Prism are mark/scratch free, though the tripod mount does have some paint scratched off which is fairly typical. Polaroid back does have a couple of minor scuff marks but this of course doesn't hamper or effect usage. Film back does have a few scuff marks as expected around the mount, in line with minor use.
It will happily take a V mount digi back if you're that way inclined, so upgrading is easy.
The kit includes:
Hasselblad 500 C/M 50th Anniversary Body
A12 Film back
Carl Zeiss 80mm f/2.8 Planar T* w/ filter
Waist Level Finder
45 Degree Prism
Grid Ground Glass
Hasselblad 100 Polaroid Back
Hasselblad Original Leather strap, mint condition, barely if ever used (sorry no pic!)
Hasselblad Padded Case
Camera located in Melbourne, Australia but happy to ship as long as it's insured. Will pack very safely.
