    Hasselblad Flexbody is an excellent design for to try to build with Ukranian optics. I saw few pictures of flexbody but camera is black and it is very hard to see the parts. Who can draw the parts to a paper and post or who can send hasselblad manual papers scans ? Or Someone may send flexbody close up pictures. I have boat and musical instrument making experience and I am thinking to build molds for parts for many production. I will post everything.

    Best regards ,

    I find you either need to login to hasselblad or pay for the manuals elsewhere... I'm keen to attempt making a mamiya RZ version - mamiya backs and mamiya lenses - I'll make the body, tilt/shift and the electronics, most of the failsafes will be fooled into operating and I'll just be careful with darkslides etc... (no harder than a view camera) - just need to figure out what all those funky connections on the lenses do, two of them will be required to trigger/power whatever it is that operates the leaf shutter, once I've found that its all good - early proto versions i'll just manually cock the lens via those pins :wink:
