    Chick magnet must start with the CM or later. My 500C isn't doing it.

    Must be the even later ones, mine are CM's and chick magnet isn't a feature I've discovered so far.

    Ted is younger though, with a newer Hasselblad, so maybe it will work for him.

    To maximize the chick magnetic qualities of the hasselblad, you gotta grow out your bangs, so that your hair hangs all over the camera while you're shooting.

    Nice kit!

    Ha! If I scan my 5x4 negatives at full res I get 483Mb files. My D700 at 12 megapixels makes 15Mb files. To expand that out my 5x4 negs are a little over 380 megapixels...

    I'm sure (positive) that maths is more complicated than that but people I meet at a social engagement won't know...!

    I have dreamed about Hassey's forever. Congratulations on finally getting one. I have to ask though......is that price in the ball park for a good to excellent Hassey of that age? I know I don't need to ask if you think you got your money's worth. That camera looks to be in as good of condition as can be.....may I ask how you came about it? Just looking for some secrets so I can find one for fair price in that good of condition....

    Yes they are, my wife wants either mine or one of her own (or else fights over my former employer's 500 C/M with some one else here on APUG)

    Do not think that is what you meant though

    Congratulations !! The hassy is really something different. Mine is am=lmost as old as could be (500C from 1958) and still works great ! Not sure the EOS3 will be the same in 50 years.
