    Hasselblad V to Mamiya adapter

    Hi guys,

    just a quick question for those who use an adapter: There's no problem using this adapter with the newer Phase One DF cameras, right?

    Kind regards

    Paul

    Paul,
    It's fine. Limitations (same as any other mamiya or older mamiya manual lenses) are stop down manual metering.

    Regards

    You can modify hasselblad lenses and use a dual shutter release to stop down and shoot.
    One cable stops down the lens and the second cable fires the shutter in the camera.

    I had a modified Hasselblad 150 2.8 that I had modified.
    What you need to do is have a hole drilled in the right spot
    so that the cable release moves the depth of field preview mechanism to shut down the iris.

    You then need a Mamiya RZ double cable release and inset the "early" cable to the lens and the "later" cable into the camera.

    Unfortunatly the lens was stolen so I can take a photo of it...
