    Hasselblad Grips

    I have a Hasselblad 500 c/m and want to purchase a grip for it. Here's my question. Are all of the grips left handed? Or are there some right handed grips that let me fire the shutter with my right hand and focus with the left? The grips I have looked at on Keh seem to be fired with the left hand and focused with the right.

    I have a couple of no-name metallic grips (which follow the black-chrome design of the Hasselblad nicely) and they can be freely be set at any direction, at the left or side of the camera featuring also a shoe for a flash.
    The "official" Hasselblad hand grips are designed to be set at the left side of the camera because they come with a built-in shutter release. The grips for the right side are the motor winders for the 503CM and the F line.

    You might look for a generic pistol grip that mounts beneath the camera. Something with a cable release in it. Nikon made a very good quality grip at one time that could be used with either hand. The difficulty was it used a Leica fit CR. They also made an adapter to standard CR.
    If you use a R. side grip it will block the advance knob.

    Crap, I never even thought about the advance knob. Question should now be tossed out the window. I guess I'll have to learn to use the standard grip.
