    H3D body only?

    Does anyone know of places to pick up H3D / H3D II bodies without a back?

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    Hi Jeff,

    check out Pro Centre in London under second hand sales 'Hasselblad Digital'.

    Regards, Udo

    I believe you need to goto Hasselblad directly since the body is matched with the digital back. You cannot just buy a spare body and put your existing digital back on it.

    Best to buy a used H2D and trade/upgrade to the H4X that works with all backs

    Hey Fred that's actually not how the H4X works. It was designed for users of H1/H2 bodies to be able to upgrade their bodies and still use their backs. The H3D backs only work on H3D / H3D II bodies.

    Thanks though =)

    Guys I was able to track one down. Thanks for your help!

    Cheers,
    Jeff

    Hey Fred, that's actually not quite true. The H4X is to the H1 / H2 as H4D is to the H3D. The H4X will only work with older backs and was designed to allow users of the older bodies the ability to upgrade.

    I ended up picking up a body. Thanks for all of the info guys!
