    OK, I've got the 150mm lens on, and I want to shoot f/4 with a shutter speed of 2 seconds. Except that the lens seems to be fixed such that I'm stuck with f/4 and 1/250 (and f/5.6 is 1/125, f/8 is 1/60th, etc.).

    How do I set the aperture and shutter speed independently?

    Can you tell I'm a long-time Bronica user?

    Thanks -

    - CJ

    There is a small metal tab on the lower right hand side of the lens. Press this tab toward you and you can change the shutter speed to the one you want. You will see that you are really setting the exposure and turning the aperture ring changes the shutter speed to maintain that exposure.

    Hope this helps, if not come on back.

    There should be a tab on the apeture ring sticking out. Pull back on that tab (towards the rear of the camera) and you should be able to slide that apeture ring to your desired value.

    ??? I'm more than a little confused by some of the replies here. You are inquiring about the Hasselblad Zeiss Sonnar 150mm CF ... aren't you?

    On this lens, the aperture settting tab, located to the right of the f/stop numbers (lens facing forward) is a "double". There is a push button in the center of this tab that locks aperture and shutter speeds together when depressed. Moving the tab without depressing the button *should* set only the aperture.... if it is stuck down, it has to be "unstuck".

    The knurled furthermost forward ring sets the shutter speeds - and should be independent when that locking button is not depressed.

    On this lens, the "wide" button to the left of the PC synchronization socket is a depth-of-filed preview button. If pressed down, it will close the aperture, and "rocking" it will release it.

    One other button of note - on the shutter speed ring, there is a red button, and a red "F". The red button must be depressed to rotate the shutter spped ring to the red "F" setting, which disables the between the lens shutter for use on cameras with focal-plane shutters.

    Those shutter controls are common to the other Hasselblad CF lenses I have - the 80mm Planar and 50mm Distagon.

    If you are still having troubles, let me know and I'll send copies of the lens manuals.

    I'm actually speaking of the 150 C lens not the CF. The C doesn't have the button you're talking about, just the metal tab on the apeture ring.

    Thanks for the replies. This is the 150C, and I was able to set the lens appropriately by pulling back on the metal tab. Still, I was able to set it to 1 second, but couldn't get past the bulb setting to set it to slower shutter speeds. As I'm sure you've guessed, I've inherited this camera and all the accessories with no manuals whatsoever, so I'm certain to have more bonehead questions in the future.

    Thanks, again.

    I don't believe you can set it for slower than the bulb setting. You'll just have to use a cable release to hold the shutter open at that setting for times longer than 1 second.

    Seriously? That seems strange. With my Bronica, I can set it for up to an 8-second shutter speed before I hit the bulb setting.

    If you find a way to do it please let me know. There are numbers after that bulb setting, but I've never been able to get my dial to turn to any of them.
