What is the condition like of this used item?

The condition of this item has been described as:


  • Slight signs of use
  • Full working order
  • No obvious cosmetic marks
  • No dust or fungus
  • No additional markings & odour free
  • Smooth zoom/focus movement with the 80mm lens
  • Film cameras - Light traps checked and passed test
  • Film cameras - Wind on mechanisms tested and operational
  • Film cameras - Shutter speeds fully operational

Just back from a service where the lens was stripped, lubricated and cleaned. The speeds are spot on as is the aperture - both working perfectly in this stunning 80mm CF lens. The A12 back has matching serial numbers. The waist level finder pops up in that magical Hasselblad way and the magnifyer is clean and free from scratches.

It has very few signs of use (see photo's) apart from the tripod mount where the coating has come off. Otherwise it has very few marks considering its 39 years.

It is a perfectlly working fine example of this world-class camera that are becoming very sought after in this condition.

The 500C/M was launched in 1970 and this one was made some 11 years later making it a late edition. It was produced until 1988 where the next model - the 503CX - has improvements such as electronic flash control and a brighter focus screen.

A perfect example for any avid Hasselblad collector at the same time a thoroughbred workhorse that will continue to deliver the highest quality images for many years to come.
