The Hasselblad 503CW is ideal for a wide range of photographic situations and is easily adaptable to fit your changing needs - ideal for both location and studio photography.
This single lens reflex camera offers power winder/IR remote options, supports the entire range of Hasselblad lenses from the first C series to today´s CFi/CFE series. The leaf shutters offer speeds from 1 to 1/500 s with flash sync at all shutter speeds.
The standard film-winding crank can easily be replaced with the Winder CW, providing the 503CW with both automatic winding as well as remote control capability. The winder can be controlled manually or remotely by cable or IR. With the Winder CW, the camera´s ergonomics are particularly suited to handheld photography. The winder/grip also comes in handy when turning the camera 90 degrees for vertical shots.
| ||The 503CW can be used together with any of today´s 11 different lenses from 30 to 350mm focal lengths. All lenses are made by Carl Zeiss, the world´s leading optics manufacturer. Thanks to Carl Zeiss T* anti-reflection coating and internal stray light reduction treatments, these lenses produce unbeatable image contrast and color saturation - superior quality, ultimate flexibility, and no compromises.|
The built-in flash control system (TTL/OTF) turns flash photography into child´s play when used with a compatible flash and SCA390 adapter. A sensor measures the light reflected off the film surface and automatically controls the flash precisely to provide the perfect exposure, regardless of the lens focal length or lighting conditions.
The 503CW is also incredibly easy to focus. The focusing screen is large, clear and bright and features a micro prism and split-image viewfinder.
The Hasselblad 503CW is the ideal choice for those requiring the optimum versatility to take on both digital and analogue capture, whether in the studio or on location. There are several different digital backs available to broaden choice even further. A medium-format solution is perfect for those who aren´t willing to sacrifice image quality and reliability when shooting digitally - the sensors used by V System digital backs are up to twice the size of those in 35 mm cameras, providing more pixels - for better resolution and larger pixels for less image noise, better dynamic range, and improved detail especially in highlight and shadow areas.
Considering all this when picking up a classic Hasselblad V System camera and feel its solid weight in your hand, think for a minute of the history that has gone into this compact box design. Remember all the world famous images that have been captured by Hasselblad. And once you have done that, put them all behind you and go make some history of your own.
