    Hasselblad 2,8/80 C Lens - long shutter speeds problem

    hello,

    actually i use my hasselblad 500c/m with the Planar 2,8 80mm C lens quite often, but only with the short shutter times. Yesterday I try to check the half and one second speed does not work, or really slow. I know this problem from large format lenses, but how i open this Hasselblad lens?

    any advice will be fine.

    thanks Micha

    Are you really sure you want to take apart your Hassy lens? My advise would be to send it out to an expert.

    +1 on the send it out rec.
    Once you have the shutter removed from the lens assembly it's much the same as any leaf shutter.
    With practice it can become easy. It's not something to practice on though.
    The problem you're having is old/lack of lube in the slow speed escapement & it need to be CLA'd
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    There are some differences in the Hasselblad shutter from normal leaf shutters. The Hassy shutter stays open for viewing and automatically closes, then quickly reopens and closes for the exposure and the aperture has to close down to the set value as well. I'd send it to David Odess, he just CLA'd my 150mm CF Sonnar. It cost $191 for the repair, the parts (he replaced my mainspring), and shipping back to me. Kinda high but worth it as he's factory trained and used to work for Hasselblad.....he's the best for Hasselblad.

    As far as I know, Hasselblad claims that there are no service parts anymore for the old C lenses.
    This doesn´t mean that an independent repairer might not still have some of course.
    My advice would either be to have it serviced or to buy a newer CF T* lens instead.
    Depends on how much it would cost.

    For a routine cleaning of a shutter there shouldn't be much in the way of parts needed. To the best of my knowlege the replacement of the mainspring with the currently available part is more of a CYA measure than a necessity. I suppose sych contacts might be needed, but other than that if the shutter once worked well but is just slowing down because it needs cleaning parts shouldn't be much of an issue.

    I pay about $60 to have an 80mm Planar CLA'ed. This is a bread and butter operation and totally routine for any competent repair tech (avoid the big pricey camera chains and repair mills, find the small local shops). I absolutely do not advise tampering with it yourself if photography is your aim and anyway there are much cheaper lenses and cameras to practice camera repair on.

    Well, Hasselblad cannot supply some of the parts anymore, but they havn't trashed them either, so most parts are still available to their net of repairmen. Most of these lenses doesn't have much mileage on them anyhow, so if a lens looks decent, it should be decent too (in terms of serviceability).
    What I'm getting at is that good-looking black and chrome C lenses go for a song these days, so e.g. a nice looking black T* 150mm lens with a budget for a CLA included is a good buy for less money than a pretty worn CF 150. Optically they are "the same", at least noone can tell them apart from the pictures.

    Hi Björn,
    my recommendation was rather focused on the T* coating than on the fact wheather it should be C or CF.
    It wasn´t obvious in the starting post if it was a T* or not. Unfortunately I didn´t expressed that enough in my previous post. Of course every Hasselblad lens is worth a repair, sorry if I may have sounded like a member of the disposable society.

    Hi Dave, I have the same problem with my 80mm Planar lens and I'm looking to send it out for a CLA. Would you share who your tech is. I have a very limited budget for these things and have parked my Hassy because of this problem. thank you
