Subject:Cameras... I has one
Time:08:14 pm
I just picked up a Hasselblad. It's a 500C/M, sports a split-image focusing screen, an eye-level prism, a 120 back, and a 150mm f/4 lens. Everything appears to be in excellent condition, and the only thing that's missing from the equation is a lens cap. The guy I bought it from was really cool, too, and delightful to talk to.

I just looked up the serial number. It was manufactured in 1975.

My Leica M3, which I had back in the mid 70s, was just about exactly as old as I was. Which was a lot younger, then. Of course, it wasn't particularly retro, in the 1970s.

Congratulations on failing your save against Teh Shiny!

Congrats!! If you check out a shop that sells used/consignment MF gear, they usually have a lens cap or three kicking around; at least they always did at Pro Photo Supply in PDX.

Thanks!

I went on a spree on KEH last night. Bought lens caps, body caps (also missing, but less important to me), and an extension tube.

I think it was probably a professional portrait photographer's camera, if I had to guess.
