    How to make a Hasselblad Large Format Camera

    I am thinking that it would be a good idea to make a field camera using the A12 Hasselblad magazine and a 80 CF Hasselblad lens. Can you give me some websites addresses that could help?
    Thank you,
    Henry.

    I've had an Flexbody (basically what you're describing) and it doesn't make any sense to start with a Hasselblad lens and film magazine for a DIY camera. The lens needs to be cocked and triggered and the magazine needs to be wound--how will you do that? The Hassy lenses have very little coverage beyond 6x6, so your movements are limited. Mamiya or Graflex roll film backs and a large format lens would be a much better start.

    +1, unless you're a masochist in a big way.

    By the way, other makes of roll film backs will do as well for you as Graflex or Mamiya. Note that all but early Mamiya RB/RZ backs have interlocks that you'll have to defeat, also that the lovely S-shaped backs for Mamiya Press cameras are very hard to adapt to standard Graflok backs.

    Or a Fuji GX680.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Or a Cambo 4x5 with a Hasselblad adaptor back.
