My Latest Purchase, A Hasselblad-500CM!! I Feel Complete Now!!!

Right up there with Karmann Ghias, Indian Motorcycles and an Hermès bag, a Hasselblad SLR is the dream camera of any obssessed shutterbug. Compared to an Hermès bag, they are almost cheap or at least reasonable. Compared to a Holga tho, a Hasselblad is a steep plunge into your savings account & it takes a shrewd hunt on ebay to find a good deal...

Ok I splurged to a degree and I took a risk but I trusted my instincts on this one and altho it didn’t have a strap or a lens cap and the waist viewer was very scratchy, it did have the body caps, two film backs with darkslides a 120mm & a 220 AND 6 rolls of Portra 400 220 film. Plus after shooting a test with the 220 film, I can attest wholeheartedly that the lens is as gorgeous as the ebayer claimed and I have never been more excited and happy!! This guy is going with me to London for sure! Hopefully the strap I just ordered will come in time! I can look for a waist viewer that is cleaner eventually but right now I just wanna shoot shoot shoot shoot and get awed by the results…I mean even a slice of pizza looks amazing with this camera! Check out my faves from my first roll of 220 Portra 400 claiming on the box to be “The World’s Finest Grain in 400 speed film”
