    I'm going to enjoy my new Hasselblad

    I'm really going to enjoy shooting with this new Hasselblad 907X Medium Format kit!

    ... at least until I wake up from my dream.

    Well you can get TWO for FREE. All you have to do is pick them up....

    After the successful shooting on 21 July 1969, the Hasselblad was hoisted up to the lunar lander with a line. Securely removing the film magazines, both cameras with lenses were left behind on the Moon in order to meet narrow weight margins for successful return.

    Re: I'm going to enjoy my new Hasselblad

    Seen one or two originals. Held one. Closest I got back then was my Rolleiflex.
    Nice camera, mind pharts when moving back and forth with an SLR.

    But, a digital back. Rumours have persisted for so long my head hurts about digital bits for our old film SLR's and whatever. I really hate to see camera bodies and all those lenses go away. Tried to find the refernce in DP mentioned below about a digital back for the SLR laying in a drawer..haven't yet, but I will.

    Sure this isn't "The Onion"?

    On DP Review, I saw that a company "I'm back" is making a digital back for the Hasselblad. Much negative comment. They also allegedly have one for that old film SLR residing in your bottom drawer.

    Found it for SLR. Nope. Sorry, slapping your old SLR onto a shoebox even if it IS orange don't cut it.

    Did a lot of work with 'blads and Bronicas over the years. Studio portraiture and weddings. Never owned one myself, tho. My medium format cameras were Mamiya TLR's. Lens interchangeability was the deciding factor there. And of course, money.

    I was tempted to buy a Hasselblad point and shoot, until I discovered it was really nothing more than a Sony RX100 in a fancier case.

    This: https://www.ebay.com/itm/HARD-TO-FIN...8AAOSwKN1c~D2f

    Is nothing more than a dressed up Version 1 Sony RX100 which can be had for under $300 all day long.

    Not much advantage to a larger digital camera format camera IMHO. Bulky, clumsy things with not much in R.O.I. If you were doing ad shots and studio work, maybe. Just get more glass and goodies for your Canon.

    Re: I'm going to enjoy my new Hasselblad

    I have a Cannon SLR that I inquired about a digital back for it and was told there's none! That was about 2 years ago, maybe someone has developed one by now, or I got the wrong information in the beginning. I love that camera and have 4 extra lenses for it, but I'm not into processing 35mm film anymore. PJ

    which was my understanding...not only is none but no digital camera manufacturer wants folks to re-use older technology and cut into their PROFITS.

    Look at the link in my last post. Look at the photos. Drop your camera into the box, which overall appears to be at least 4X bigger than the original camera, and take your photos.
    Things I read up on indicate the picture quality just is not there doing it like this.

    My Contax 139 was always my go to camera. I liked the fact that you could get interchangeable mirrors. I used a mirror with grid lines when I did slide work.

    I agree. In reality, I've not run into any shooting situation where I thought, "gee, I wish I had a medium frame camera." But...I'd still love to have one if they weren't so danged expensive.

    Re: I'm going to enjoy my new Hasselblad

    I wonder if my lenses would fit a new Cannon digital SLR. I'm not a camera buff, so it might be a dumb question. The telephoto lens has an automatic focus setting if needed, which I used due to my eyes not being the best. It was expensive at the time, reason I'd like to see if it would adapt to a new camera.

    Not a dumb question/ Possibly with an adaptor, depending on which lens mount you have and which Camera you are trying to mount it to. The Canon EF Mount, for example, came out in 87 as a digital camera only mount. It has been the standard for years for digital untill recently. Canon has now introduced a new mount, the R Mount, for their new line of digital "mirrorless" cameras. The EF mount can me mounted to the new "R" cameras with an adaptor. Similarly my Canon T-70 Film camera uses an old "FD" mount, but those old FD lenses can be mounted to my EF-Mount digital camera with an adaptor. (I've not tried it).

    Easiest thing to do is to a search for whatever the mount of your lens is to whatever the mount the camera uses. E.G: Canon FD to EF Adaptor
