    I've shot a few rolls through a couple transition 500C bodies (the ones that were marked as 500C's but were actually C/M's). I've yet to experience the "bullfrog" effect. If it's that big of a deal, there is a tab just below the wind crank (or knob, depending on your persuasion) that is the mirror prefire. Hit that, and take your shot. To me, it feels no worse than an FM2n or a Nikkormat FT series body. If anything, it feels more damped.

    Just sold all my Blad gear :(

    I've solved the problem! Get a Rolleiflex SL66 instead of the Hassy! (actually I have both). After all "The Flash Synchronization speed up to 1/30 second guarantees sharp and well illuminated pictures..."

    From the Rolleiflex SL66 product description on eBay (where this originally came from I do not know):

    Product Information
    The Rolleiflex SL66 is a film camera with 6x6cm image format. The shutter speed range of this Rollei film camera is 1 - 1/1000 second that enabling better effects on the appearance of moving objects. The Flash Synchronization speed up to 1/30 second guarantees sharp and well illuminated pictures on this Rollei camera. The 80 - 150mm focal length of this Rollei film camera covers wide angle shot with precision, giving you even the minutest detail of the subject. You can also tilt the lens of this Rollei camera up and down upto 8 degrees. The TTL metering with special hood SL66 in the Rolleiflex SL66 camera lets you choose the optimal exposure for fast or slow speed snapshots.

    You mean my Rolleiwide? That's lighter than either the 500C/M or SL66 and less bulky. :/)

    Yes, while attached to the tripod.

    Yeah, pretty much.

    I recently heard that a new cause of automobile accidents is due to people taking selfies with their cell phones while driving.

    People are strange!
