Be Careful with Your Digital Backs!!

I paid equivalent of US$1.2 k to have the same done for my Hasselblad sensor. - looked like the glass suffered something the dull patch visible in the pic has a matte surface. And it shows up in the photograph. I had to have it replaced twice. Fortunately my dealer fought for me so I paid only once, as Hasselblad had wanted to charge me another $1.2k after the replacement had the same problem after 6 months.

For comparison purposes, my dealer said that Phase One quoted $1650 just for cleaning of my sensor cover glass of my ex IQ250 after trading it in due to some visible mold/corrosion/something on the sensor side of the glass. I never saw the actual quote so it is possible they were replacing the glass and my dealer misspoke. Luckily I was not on the hook for it.
Glad it is getting repaired, and at a fairly reasonable cost!

I received the 50c on Tuesday as Hasselblad USA said I would be receiving it. Hasselblad tested the repair and so have I in the studio and outside. It works as before (wonderfully), but has been cleaned and the numbering was definitely reset. As soon as I can get to it, I will be placing it up for sale, and I am thinking $4K wold be a fair price. May take me a week or so to get it on schedule for a set of photos, and I will post a link here to the FS post after it has been created. Thank you to everyone that has posted in this thread, shared their experiences, and more importantly to me personally, thank you to those that offered me their support.

Kind regards,
Darr

Hi Darr,

I’m glad this all worked out for you. Your equanimity in navigating this unfortunate event is a good lesson about keeping life’s smaller (i.e., not truly life or death) curveballs in perspective. I‘m also just a bit more mindful when unmounting and mounting my MFDB!

Thank you John!
