    Collectible Hasselblad 1000f medium format film camera with waist level finder, 80mm Zeiss-Tessar f2.8 lens, 2 film backs with dark slides (1 slide is not original), original cable release, sport finder, 135mm and 250mm lucite masks for the sport finder, and original leather hand strap.

    The Hasselblad 1000f was the second camera that Hasselblad produced; like the 200 series cameras that followed the V series (500), the shutter is in the body of the camera, not the lens, and because of this, Hasselblad was able to pack a faster speed into this beauty -- thus the model designation, the 1000f: it has a max shutter speed of 1/1000th second.

    Peculiar to this design are the backs, which look like older C12 Hassie backs but actually have to actuated with a pin that comes out of the rear of the camera. So you can only use the backs that are provided; however, the size of the focus screen and the finder holder is the same as the 500 series, so you can actually use just about any later Hasselblad prism with this body (which is a plus).

    This particular body had a complete CLA at Panorama Camera Center in NYC (receipt is available upon request) about two months ago. It is guaranteed to be in good working condition.

    The exterior condition of the body is good, but not perfect. As you can probably see from some of the pictures, there are some spots of chrome missing in places, but none of these spots is larger than a couple of millimeters. There is no rust on the camera, and there aren't any mold or mildew odors (it was stored in a very dry place); there is a minor, very minor dent in one panel of the steel shutter (a pretty common thing on these bodies), but there aren't any holes in the shutter, and it functions just as it is supposed to.

    The only problem with the camera is the damage to the focusing screen, which you be able to see in the last photo. It almost looks as if the previous owner scratched the coating off the corner of the screen (there is a sheer plastic part underneath that is coated, and this is what looks to be scratched). The scratch is about three quarters of an inch in diameter, but it is in the corner -- however, it shouldn't be too hard to replace the screen (it didn't bother me much, but you need to know about it).

    The 80mm lens is in good working condition. No haze or fungus, clear optics, but there is some "flecking" or what may be paint loss or shrinkage around the inside of the barrel which looks a little like Schneideritis. Doesn't affect the optics, but you should know that the 80mm isn't mint. Focus is smooth; aperture clicks smoothly and locks into place. There may also be some cleaning marks on the lens.

    The two film backs are original to the camera and come with dark slides. One of the dark slides is from a later A12 back, but it works fine.

    The sports finder is in very good condition; the 135mm mask has a crack at the bottom but still fits in the finder fine.

    The original locking cable release works great. The original cable release port cover is still on the body!

    Wrist strap is a bit stiff but works okay. Asking $665 OBO via PayPal -- not interested in trades, thanks, as I have all the gear I need (that's why I'm selling this).

    PRICE REDUCED TO $625


    Pretty good deal for a camera that just had a CLA -- and I also have a 135mm Hasselblad telephoto / portrait lens to go with it, if anyone's interested.

    Seems to be a common complaint.... Maybe I need to offer a payment plan!

    Well, I see that a certain other member has dropped the price on his 1000f camera, which also has the 80mm lens.

    Couple of things -- note that mine has 2 backs, the complete sport finder, the original cable release and wrist strap, as well as the original protective cover on the body for the cable port.

    OH, AND I AM DROPPING THE PRICE TO $600, PLUS SHIPPING!


    Get it now before I change my mind!

    Okay, folks. I've just about given up on this -- I did list it on that auction site, but I had a very high starting price, so I didn't get any takers.

    The CLA on this baby cost me $280, and I paid more than $500 for the camera; reason tells me to keep it, but my wife says, as she always does, that I "have too MANY CAMERAS" -- therefore I either have to face the cold shoulder at home or take a financial loss on this.

    So...

    If someone wants this for $525 plus shipping -- today is your lucky day, because you can have it. Note that it works PERFECTLY -- the only problem is with the upper right corner of the screen.
