    Petzval to Hassie....

    This may be a stupid question, but I know nothing of Petzval lenses, other than the brief history I've googled.

    But can you adapt a smaller petzval lens to a Hasselblad 500cm body?

    You can, I've adapted one to mine, other folks have too. I'd say it works best with a Petzval that has a focusing mount. You lose shutter speed flexibility, since you're dependant on the rear shutter and your "press button/release button" tiiming accuracy. Though you could mount one to a Microscope shutter, if you can find one, or buy one of the glass-less Hasselblad lenses on ebay.
    It may be hard to achieve the swirls everyone likes working when with 6x6, my Petzval is around 180 mm FL, and on the Hasselblad, the sharp center region fills most of the frame.

    I made an adaptor to fit a small 5" ish darlot to my hasselblad 201f ....i used a body cap and some ABS piping to get the right focal length... Worked well.

    you can, but how about focussing?

    I have both hasselblad and rolleiflex SL66 - the latter is very easy to fit other lenses on, and as the shutter is in the camera, there are no problems with expoeure time. Also as the lens is fitted on a bellow - focussing is easy.

    I have used small projection lenses, and swirley images can be had..

    see examples.

    Have fun.

    I don't have any gallery images made with it, but here are pix of the rig.
    I had a Hasselblad Lens Mount adaptor which I drilled and tapped for the Petzval's flange. Then it needed an extension tube to get it out to reasonable focusing range. Fine focus happens with the focusing rack on the lens.
