    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.

    These are for reverse engineering.

    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.

    I'm not getting your point?
