Medium format camera – Hassleblad, light meters and 120 film.

The Hasslebad was created by a Swedish family in 1841 when they first established their business. They never knew how much of an impact they would have on the world of Photography and how widely respected the Hassleblad name would become.

The Hassleblad was the first camera on the moon when Walter Schirra purchased a Hassleblad 500c.


The hassleblad i’m going to be looking at is the 503 model. It has a standard prime lens (80mm) and i’ll be using a square 6×6 format (12 shots per roll of film). You can also use 6×7,6×8,6×9 format.
