I was fortunate to inherit my step-grandpa's hasselblad system years ago (he passed in 1988) and it was probably almost new then...it's the 500cm with various extension things, waist level finder, prism, a12 backs and three lenses (the 80 2.8, 50 4. and the 150 4 - all carl zeiss cf t* with uv filters,etc.) I LOVE this camera, it is truly my favorite of all mine and I have MANY cameras...so, I'm wanting to add to my system by means of something I can shoot with studio strobes - I'm coming back to film from digital for clients and am looking at the 553 ELX. I have the Hasselblad Manual book by Wildi that grandpa had too which is wonderful...I've been reading online and think this is a good choice for a body to add. Any comments are welcome. I am deciding this with the idea I will give up several other cameras and focus more on the one system (something new for me because even digital I was a nikon and canon shooter).... I'm a camera freak. I admit it. I shoot alien bees for strobes and have a 4x6 softbox and also other softboxes and lights but I tend to lean toward a feathered large main light to mimic a large window and look natural. I use natural light with the 500cm. Thoughts? Accusations of insanity? All welcome!
