Hasselblad 501C with multiple lenses, accessory set (see listing)
This 501C comes with two lenses, two A12 backs (switch between emulsions while you shoot!), and an impressive selection of accessories. This kit was acquired together from one photographer as we have listed it.
A phenomenal kit for someone building out a studio setup from scratch.

We photograph every camera that we sell; you will receive the camera and gear in the photos. Please inspect all photos carefully for best information about cosmetic condition. Please note that while this set is in overall excellent condition, there are some losses to the black paint on the waist-level viewfinder. This is fully visible in the photos. Please also note that while one A12 back is the matching black-on-black finish, the second A12 back has chrome finish. The A12 back with chrome finish has a slightly lifted area to the leatherette near where it attaches to the camera, also visible in photos.
The development of the 500C led to multiple versions with various modifications. The 500C/M, launched in 1970, was fitted with an interchangeable focusing screen, including a prism viewfinder with a built-in exposure meter. Introduced in 1988, the 503CX was a critical advancement of the 500C/M, equipped with both a built-in flash control (OTF metering) and a very bright focusing screen. Next came the 503CXi in 1994, followed by the 501C. In 1996 came the 503CW, which received a specially made electric winder. The 501CM (1997-2005) improved upon the 501C, using the new mirror design of the 503CW. The final 503CWD was coupled with a digital CFV back, as was made possible by the modular design of Hasselblad cameras.
