    I have a 1961 model SWC, which I thoroughly enjoy shooting handheld or on a mono-pod - focusing on the near far that this widenagle can create.

    I have exclusively used this camera using the A12 back making 6x6 square images. However I have also though it would be interesting to create 6x45 images using the A16 back I have.

    Recently on ebay I saw an add selling a viewfinder mask for a SWC that maks to create Superslide size (1 5/8 square) allowing the use of the A16s back. While this did not interest me, this was the first I saw of this kind of accesory.

    My Question: Did Hasselblad make a mask for the SWC for use of the A16 back (6x45)?

    TIA
