    Hasselblad or Bronica

    Hi all,

    Long time i didn't post here.

    Well, i have my Hasselblad for over 1 year, almost 2 years, i mean my film one, but the only regret i have with this camera is the focusing.

    I am not sure if Bronica focusing is better than Hasselblad 500 series, i have Mamiya RZ and its focusing is superior to Hasselblad, not even close, so how can i fix this problem with Hasselblad though i have 2 focusing screens [Acute/Acute-D] and both didn't cut it for me, i want a 6x6 format camera, and as much i love the Hassy handle and gear, but the focus making me to go with Mamiya or even Fuji RF over it, what to do, i don't mind to get Brony if it is better.

    There is a 6x6 back for the rz. It is rather rare now, but if you watch for a few weeks you'll find one. I got one recently.

    It's quite likely that something is internally slightly out of alignment in your Hasselblad. It is probably worthwhile having it serviced.

    Ah cool, this is an option, i will give that a look, but the weight of RZ is no match to Hasselblad.

    What exactly that part is? I found one store/shop by coincidence, i may try them even i don't trust them, we have a digital Hasselblad dealer, not sure if they are servicing film Hassy, will give them a try as well.

    Sorry, I don't know which part or parts affect the focus, but I had mine serviced a few years ago and the technician mentioned that he had made some adjustments which would correct the focus.

    And what was the issue that time you sent it for service?
    the focus issue?

    No, the focus was not the issue. It was a problem with the winding mechanism. It's quite likely the camera had never been serviced before and it's a 1977 model.
