    Hasselblad A12 light seals repair?

    Hello,

    One of my A12 backs is beginning to show foam sticking out on the inside part. It SEEMS to still be light-tight for now, but I need to develop the roll I ran through it to be sure. However, I'd like to replace the light seal.

    How difficult is it to do this on this camera? Where can I get said light seals?

    Thanks!

    There are sellers on ebay offering the seals.

    Shouldn't be a problem, just use a proper screwdriver and keep track on the screws, best if each is put back where it was.
    At least I had no problems first time I changed seal.
    Good Luck!

    Totally simple.
    Just pay attention to the screws because on some backs one is longer than the rest.
    I've done many of these and am in Rockville in case you get hung up.

    Just make sure you have the correct fitting screwdrivers.
