    Just wondering if there is an accessory available that can be adapted to a Hasselblad that is like the 35mm Lensbabies.

    Cheers & Thanks

    Thanks Jeremy! The focal plane shutter thing should not be a problem, I will work the lens the old fashioned way on the 500C/M I am hacking.

    Cheers & Thanks,
    Annie

    Not wanting to attach a plunger-type thing on my Hassy, are there any Hassy-specific lensbabies-type tube available?

    I did it the cheap way this morning.........with a modified front body cap (read cut a big hole in it), some home-made neoprene tubing and lens elements from an old slide projector. Total cost less than $20. The prototype needs a bit of refinement but the basics are there... should have the deluxe model ready by the weekend, just needs better tubing with a waterhouse slot.
    Happy lens hacking everyone!
