    I bought this camera back in 1998. I used it perhaps a dozen times. I was very meticulous about how I handled it, for obvious reasons. Condition is like new!!! It's an impressive camera & eyes get big when other shooters see it!
    I"m not into impressing others anymore so I'm selling this fine camera.

    I'm pretty sure it's 24K gold plated. I don't see that on the certificate but when looking at others on the internet; that is how it's listed. It was manufactured for the 50th anniversary of hasselblad. I'm asking $4200 for it.
    Shipping & insurance would be on top of that.
    Comes with a leather case, shipping box, leather strap, certificate of authenticity, a book( "hasselblad-the camera system, 50 years") & keychain.
    Payment is by certified bank money order only.
    I have a stellar rating on ebay & I understand a customer's hesitance to buy something on line that is fairly expensive.
    Serious inquiries only please. I can send other photos on request.
    My guess on shipping & insurance is at least $25.

    That's a pricey Hassy... certainly wouldn't want to take it to the pub.

    The ultimate bling for the photographer that has everything. Even better than walking around with a 50mm Rollei, a 80mm Rollei and a 135mm Rollei TLRs hanging on you neck!

    If the matching lens and back are there, then it's not a bad deal IMO. Obviously a collectors-only piece. I'm pretty sure it is 24 carat plated and only 500 were made. If I won lotto I'd probably be there ;-)

    It hardly makes sense to use a camera like this without the right tripod--

    Or maybe wait to see what they come up with for the Gitzo centennial.
