Thanks to Tim over at Off Center & Not Even, the camera posted for Monochrome Monday was identified as a Hasselblad Super-Wide C SWC with a Zeiss Biogon 38mm Lens. I’ve never tried let alone owned a Hasselblad. They seem to have a certain mystique about them but I don’t know why. I just know they are pricey!
But here are more images of the Super Wide to show you how photography times have changed and looking at this I’m glad they have. Some purists may disagree… or not.
Paking pictures with one of these: those were the days! 🙂
You definitely had to take your time with these!
That camera or at least that lens is really old. Hasselblad and Leica have their mystique and following. I’ve owned Leicas, but not Hasselblad, but as I mentioned, I used Hasselblads at the studio I worked for in the 80s and 90s. Thanks for the shout out.
De nada, Tim!
Pretty amazing, makes me wonder what kind of film it shoots with.
Now there’s a thought!
