This is a Unique opportunity to acquire one of the best Hasselblad 501C complete system guaranteed in perfect cosmetic and working condition.

This camera system IS NOT sold "as is": The camera, back and lens are covered by our return policy and warranty. Bought new in 1996, this camera has been owned by an amateur, not a heavy Pro user, and very lightly used as its condition shows. The camera body and the magazine were serviced and went through a CLA in October 2016, including a new light trap and new nylon stop. This is a $350.00 value The camera has been upgraded with: - A Hasselblad 42218 Split Image focusing screen. - A Waist Level Finder, latest model - A Genuine Hasselblad A12 late model magazine with dark slide holder. - A Carl Zeiss Tessar 4/160mm CB T* lens, vastly superior to the "standard" 80mm CB lens which came with many 501C's. $650.00 value The Split Image screen is brighter and allows a much faster and precise focusing than the original screen which came with the 501C. The camera is in superb condition. The plate of this camera shows no sign of use! The included Carl Zeiss 160mm CB lens is a big improvement on the original lens. It is incredibly sharp, with pristine glass and very smooth focusing mechanism. This lens has been the favorite lens of fashion magazines and other high quality publications for 20 years. Much better than the standard 80mm lens usually found with the 501C's. From portraits to nature, this lens has produced among the best pictures published around the world for more than 20 years! All speeds, including slow speeds, have been electronically tested and are accurate. The camera and lens have been tested with a digital back (PhaseOne) and are guaranteed to work with digital backs.
