    Hello,

    Does B+W or brands alike make filters (or adapter rings) to fit on Hasselblad lenses. Over here it's a real challange to find filters for a Hasselblad since the orriginals aren't sold so an alternative could be the solution.

    cheers!

    Yes, they make Bay 60 and Bay 50 filters. So do others make, I have a Tiffen Bay 60 Orange.

    If you have trouble finding a supplier locally, Robert White in the UK stocks B&W and is used to shipping abroad.

    Cheers, Bob.

    Hey Quinten!

    What I did is buy a Bay60mm to screw-mount 67mm adapter for mine. This makes it much easier (and a tad less expensive) to buy filters. I like it that my filters are slightly larger than the lens as well.

    The adapter B&W girl mentions will also hold series 8 filters too, if you have a retaining ring.

    I'm actually surprised that it's hard to find filters for Haseys in Europe than here in the US. I would have thought Heliopan and B&W filters would be readily available?

    Well actually there are shops not to far away who have practicly each filter availeble, though hard to reach with public transport.

    Many other small stores stopped selling the bajonet filters because they hardly ever sold one. Now I have bought the ring B&W girl suggested and van use my 67 filters, wich works great!

    Thanks for the tips!
