Hello all! I'm glad to be here on the board. I've been lurking for a few days and am seriously interested in taking up medium format to supliment my digital camera and learn some darkroom technique instead of sitting in front of PS all day long. There is some SERIOUS good information here, and Im busy taking it all in. The question I had is this: I'm looking at building out a Hasselblad 503CM rig, well not looking, more like obsessing. But does this one rely on batteries to operate? Is there a modern medium format rig that doesnt take batteries? Sorry if its a newbie question, I was just interested in going the complete opposite direction from digital, manual everything, no light meter, no batteries, and getting a camera that would work at 30 below or something and not have to warm the batteries if you know what I mean.
