Mark is largely right. It's all on the website.
Hasselblad Business Partners will provide the minimum of a twelve month warranty to end-users (subject to their normal statutory rights)
on new Hasselblad equipment sold, valid from the date that the equipment is purchased by the first end-user.
For H System camera bodies, film backs and lenses the warranty will be limited to the warranty period provided by the partner or to 100,000 exposures, whichever is reached first.
- Warranty claims must be made through the dealer and/or company where the product was originally purchased, and not directly to Hasselblad (unless purchased directly with a Hasselblad subsidiary). The factory warranty is NOT international, and warranty claims cannot be made through other channels. This is also valid for equipment purchased outside the country of residence.
Regarding warranty transferring to a second owner the wording is not clear.
However about having to go through the original dealer is a pain and really limits resale value and convenience.
The fact that the warranty isn't international is really stupid for proffessional gear.
That said Hasselblad does have really good repaire service. Reaonably priced in my experiance and my last two repairs were under a week turnaround.
One was even the replacement of an out of production rare lens that needed an iris replacement and other service. Total was $300 including return shipping.
Additional warranty can be purchared, even if the camera is out of the 1 year warranty, but there are limitations.
For digital backs and DSLRs up to 2 additional years can be purchased during valid warranty period for a total of 3 years.
For scanners it can be extended for up to 2 additional years.
For H-system camera bodies, film backs and lenses up to a total maximum of 5-years of age or 100,000 exposures, whichever comes first.
So nothing is available over 100,000 exposures on bodies.
Backs can only be extended before initial warranty ends and only for a total of 3 years.
