    What a lovely piece of kit! I didn't realize Hasselblad had made such a beast.

    heespharm,

    Erik ,

    No , Neither this is not my camera nor I am selling. I am dreaming a similar camera making project and I posted this as a document and information source. I will try to find help to draw this camera to computer and than put a STL file to the forums for anybody wants it , order a rapid prototyping print from ABS or Epoxy. Rapid prototyping machines print plastic layer on layer and make it produce any very complex plastic working part cheaper.

    Jeff ,

    These are for reverse engineering.

    The cost of reverse engineering and manufacturing will exceed the cost of buying the system.

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Such a pity the run of these was short before being discontinued.

    Anyone know the reason?
    Was it poor sales or compromised image quality not up to Hasselblad's stringent standards?

    Steve,

    Yes , it is difficult but finding an freelance engineer from India or China nowadays costs few hundred dollars.
    I wanted to reverse engineer the Luigi Colani America's Cup yacht design for 6 meter scale model and I asked to a Turkish Firm cost 1000 dollars and two weeks. I found someone from India from engineering forums , He modelled the boat in one day and cost was only 100 dollars.

    RP is cheap for small to medium sized objects too.

    I dont see any reason to cost of product exceed 1/6 , if you are lucky and if you have will to send write tons of e mails to the engineer. They pay these engineers 15 dollars or less daily.

    May be final part to part precise drawing could be done at Ukraine and similar cost with a broken Kiev as a guide.

    Possibilities are endless with these prices , thats what American Companies do.

    If possibilities are endless, why is reverse engineering needed?

    I always figured once you put Horseman rollfilm back (with a winding lever on it ) and a lens with some coverage to use the movements, there would not be much "Hasselblad" to it anymore

    Always thought I needed one... just the coverage of the lenses I use isn't much.
