Fun with the Hasselblad 907x

Uploading to the forum didn't go as planned -- the attached photos were reprocessed and now look pretty "bitty." I need to learn how to use this forum better. That's obviously not the way to share photos!

I upload my pictures to flickr first and post the BBCode here, usually 1600px wide. In case you have a flickr account...

Fulvia Follies ... ongoing

I'm getting my Lancia Fulvia Coupe ready for a complete interior overhaul. I pulled it out into the church parking lot to make some "before" photos of the interior ... haven't processed those yet ... but got annoyed—for the last time!—with all the stickers on the windows.

I removed them. It looks a lot cleaner to my eye.


Fulvia - De-Stickered #1 - Santa Clara 2022
Hasselblad 907x + XCD 65mm f/2.8
ISO 100, f/13, 1/125

Fulvia - De-Stickered #2 - Santa Clara 2022
Hasselblad 907x + XCD 65mm f/2.8
ISO 100, f/4.8, 1/640



Fulvia - De-Stickered #3 - Santa Clara 2022
Hasselblad 907x + XCD 65mm f/2.8
ISO 100, f/4.8, 1/750



Fulvia - De-Stickered #4 - Santa Clara 2022
Hasselblad 907x + XCD 65mm f/2.8
ISO 100, f/4.8, 1/640

The contrasty sunlight would have been a problem with almost any other of my cameras other than the Hasselblad 907x...
Enjoy! :D

I hope you didn’t pay for those avocados! I have a surplus on my trees!

That set up is clearly within my sights. I have a variety of the best from Zeiss and a 500 EL/M, 503CW, and 903 SWC.

Because I'm working with what I have for the present. If I were to buy new extension tubes, I'd likely want to buy X mount tubes (there are two available) but I already have these. If I were to buy new V system extension tubes, I'd have to have a way to determine how to tell what "later ones" looked like and find them since there are no serial numbers that I am aware of... :)

Here's a snap of the setup...
Slightly greater than life size with the Planar 80/2.8 T* (mm scale, full frame width, cropped vertical as uninteresting):

Hello Godfrey, I tried the combination XV Adapter + extension tube 32E + Planar T* CFE 2.8/80 today. Wanted only to know if the mechanics and bayonets work. I am familiar with the special topic => assembly - disassembly sequence for my 503CW, V-lenses and 32E. When removing the lens from 32E, the leaf-shutter released and I had to wind it manual with a coin. Can this be avoided?

I see a similar behavior on my system, usually when I mix "E" series extension tubes and older ones. It happens about one in ten times I remove a lens.

I don't know of any way to prevent it for sure, so I always keep the Hasselblad tool to rewind the lens shutter and body in my bag when I'm using the system. Hasselblad stopped making the tool some time ago Fotodiox has been making a replica for years now (that's what I have). It's listed at B&H Photo:

A few images trying the CFV II 50C on the back of a 501cm. It was about -10C and windy so I didn't end up pulling out my filter kit and tripod as I normally would. This was mostly an experiment for me as it was the first time out with the CFV in natural light with the 501cm. All images shot with the 80mm f2.8 C T*.
Hi, thanks for the images. How was focussing and framing with the CFV II 50C in such bright and directional sunshine? (I'm toying with idea of the CFV II 50C for my 503CX).

With the 501cm I’ve been focusing and composing with the optical viewfinder on the 501. I’ve not tried using bulb mode on the lens and live view yet. That said, when using the back on the 907x my live view focusing experience has been simple and the screen is plenty bright.
