Measure the lenses!
C lenses use Bay 50 filters.
My lenses are CF[50mm,80mm, 150mm and 250mm] and all of them use a Bay 60 filter. And will take a 67mm filter with an adapter.
some later versions use a Bay 70 filter.
You can buy used Hasselblad filters in excellent condition at KEH.com, Samys, and Bel-Air Camera.
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.
Quite the contrary.

Use a ruler on a bayonet 60 lens, and you would start believing that it would rather need a bayonet 70 filter than a bayonet 60 filter.
So to avoid even greater confusion, avoid using a ruler.
I stand corrected. Thank you QG. Hasselblad rounds down: 57 = 50; 67 = 60.

Would you all recommend the method above (step rings and screw filters) of applying filters vs the bellows mounted holder (not sure of the actual term for it...I was given a 1972 500CM with the 80mm f/2.8 and this bellows, filter holder-thingy)?
The 50 Distagon C used Series 8. While *SOME* 67mm filters will screw in, the thread pitch is different and it is not reccomended to use 67mm size filters in place of Series 8. I have seen 67mm filters jammed on a Series 8 ring that would not budge. Series 8 is 66.7mm size.
