    Christmas here yet??

    ..apparently so...

    this came to me today - as a gift..

    Hasselblad 500C/M with a 80mm and a 250mm lens
    three extra cassettes

    Hasselblad SWC/M with the 38mm Biogon..

    Extra stuff (filters and so on)

    My "problem" is that I don't really use Hasselblad...

    But they surely looks pretty!

    Wow, you have such a hard life to live, but someone must get that done. I am sure you will find a way to make the best of it.

    Failing that, should I send my shipping address to you?
    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Wow. I guess whoever gifted it expected you to use it. If you genuinely won't use it, and if it was me faced with this dilemma I would be tempted to try and find a good home. How about liaising with a local photog college perhaps make it a prize in some sort of competition. I'd feel pretty mean, myself, if someone gave me something valuable like that in goodwill I didn't really want, and I just stuck it on fleabay.

    You are a very fortunate person! That SWC/M alone is a gift I'd remember for the rest of my life!

    you're right of course...
    I am actually teaching in that sort of school you mention....

    The problem is here, I've had three Hasselblad cameras on my school no one survived more than three weeks! It is surpricing how fragile these Hasselblads are.

    But I'll of course put it to use - someway or another. Ebay is a no-go.

    That's quite a gift! It seems like a good miniature-format complement to your big arsenal; you can use them as your convenient point-and-shoot cameras, for when the circumstances don't justify the effort of taking a "real" camera. :-)

    Aww, I've wanted a Hasselblad SWC for so long - I love some of the work I've seen with them.

    If you decide it isn't for you, let me know.
