    Thoughts on Hassel SWC.

    The Rolleiwide is a terrific camera and I honestly believe it may be the sharpest lens of any camera I've owned. It's terrific for even fairy close up shots too. It is not nearly as wide as the 38 Biogon or 40 Distagon though. It's like saying "I'm thinking of getting a 24mm lens for my Nikon F3, do you think a 28mm will work?" But still a great camera and lens. Tough to find in good condition under $2000 and often $3500-4000 with anything original like lens hood, cap, filters and/or case. Some of my recent fairly shots using it:

    Ha! When I went on a road trip with my son and my father from San Francisco to Mt Rushmore and back a couple years ago those are the three cameras I brought! Did not hang all three around my neck at the same time though....! All three fit perfectly side by side in my trusty Lowepro Orion bag.

    Well, yes, if you can step back 1 or 2 steps.

    Wow!! Great shots!

    One of the main reasons I bought mine. I had a 50mm Distagon for some wide shots when I shot weddings and had a heck of a time with distortion on some shots. The SWC was a dream compared to the 50mm, but like the 50mm, it was only used for certain settings. Another trick for shooting candid, street type shots is to take the finder off, stick it in your pocket an use it like a TLR. Hold it at chest or waist level, point at or near your subject matter, center the bubble and then trip the shutter. No noise and you're not looking at your subject so they don't have a clue. Of course you'll have to use a film like HP5+/THY2 so you have enough shutter speed and aperture to play the DOF game. If you can shoot at around f11 and have a speed of 1/60th or higher you'll be king of the sidewalk. Just watch your red DOF guide bars and you're all set. A very simple, but very capable camera. JW

    Yes, the SWC is like taking a shotgun hunting instead of a rifle. Your aim can be just a little off with the shotgun and you'll still hit what you shot at. The same goes for the SWC! Also, with the lens and film flatness of the SWC's quality you can do some serious cropping to bring your subject in a little closer, 'cause they will tend to look a little on the small side if they're any distance away. Just a real fun, go everywhere camera and mine is sitting right next to me this very moment. JW

    Just make sure you wear your good shoes and they're shined. Just kidding! I don't hold mine tight to my chest or belly. I usually lock my elbows to my side, slightly in front of my ribcage, with my arms straight out at belly level. You can shoot this way and turn the camera 90 degrees and pick off people without them suspecting a thing since you're not aiming directly at them. Will you get some screwed up shots? Yup, but you'll also get some pretty good ones also. JW
