    Bellows and movements for Hasselblads

    I have a great and very complete Hasselblad system and I am very happy with the quality I get from it. I have no desire to move to LF but I find that I could use the movements, some tilt and shift, for creative purposes.
    My first bet is a used Hasselblad FlexBody.
    I know there are adapters for LF camera bodies to use Hasselblad backs.
    Are there any for lenses?
    Do you have a system to suggest?
    Considering the covering limitations of MF lenses, if there is a solution out there, I guess I would be happy with a compact, 4x5 field camera.

    This is why the Hasselblad ARC body have been created. It is like the flex body, but the system uses Rodenstock Grandagon lenses. See it here
    You can find it from time to time on eB.y, but is expensive . . . here the body only. It is fine toy, but I still think that a view camera with good lens is better and easier.
    A fool with mission!

    I was looking at the FlexBody because I need a bellows body that uses my Hasselblad lenses and backs.
    I am interested in investing in a new camera system nor do I need extensive movements.

    I have the Flexbody and it is a neat little camera.

    Not only does it allow minor tilts, it also does rise and fall.

    Plus, it also acts as an adjustable extension tube.

    The going rate on ebay is about $2500 but I've seen a few lately sell for about $1800

    The Flexbody will use all of your 500 series lenses and backs.
