    Hello all,

    Anyone out there have the Hasselblad Close-Up tables for the older “C” lenses and the even older extension tubes such as the 10, 21, 55… either as a pdf, … scanned … anything?

    As it happens, my second hand used copy of the 1st edition of “The Hasselblad Manual “, naturally would have those very pages torn from the book! :sad:


    Thanks in advance

    Ira

    Marco,



    It’s not the manual per se that I need. I know how to mount and remove the lens and extension tubes.

    The close-up tables that I am refering to were desinged to show you what lens and tube combo would give you the desired image magnification, the necessary lens extension, and the exposure compensation. It even showed combo effects, proxars and bellows with tubes.

    So again, it’s not the tube manual, it is the close up data tables.


    Thanks in advance again

    Ira

    i use B/W and i roughly calculate it adding one or two stops based on the magnification.
    In case of doubt.... add 1.5 stop. Will be enough.

    Actually, Hasselblad Historical is the 1st place I always check before posting. As it happens the data is for the newer tubes and newer lenses. While the difference in size of the new tubes (55 Vs 56), is only 1mm, when you start now to add the difference in length of the newer lens barrels, along with slight differences in angle of view, focus travel etc. things start to change dramatically.


    The on-line close-up calculator is a great feature, only if you’re near a computer, and the Hasselblad slide rule type close-up calculator likewise lists the newer tubes and lenses.

    So again if anyone has the older tables or one of the older Hasselblad printed “Close-Up” guide books, let me know

    Stumbled across this thread by shear coincidence (well, almost... just collecting as much information as I can since I own a 500C :smile: ).

    Would be kind enough to share with me also ?
    Cheers
