Part of the uniqueness of the Hasselblad 500-series camera is its modular design. The camera consists of a body fashioned from a single block of nickel-alloy, a lens, a film back, a folding viewfinder (or optional prism finder), and a film crank, each of which is interchangeable with almost every Hasselblad 500-series camera produced from 1957 through 2006, when the last Hasselblad 500-series camera was hand-assembled, in 2006.
