    Hasselblad "Bay 60".... someone please explain!

    I took my Hasselblad out today for the initial test run. I'm confused what Bay 60 means. I initially thought it was 60mm. I have B&W 67mm filters and they seem to be the same diameter as my 80/2.8 CF lens. But the lens has no threads on the front. How am I to attach a filter without threads? And what is the actually diameter of "Bay 60?" Do I need to get an adapter or something to use my filters?

    Why doesn't Hasselblad just do like all the other camera manufacturers and keep it simple?

    Then it would not be a Hasselblad, nor have the Hassy cachet.

    You can buy nothing but Bay 60 bayonet filters and accesories--or do what I did: buy a Hassy Bayonet to standard thread adapter. Mine came from a place in China and was quite reasonable and nicely made.

    Yes, you can get a Bay 60 adapter, so you can then use any other make of screw-in filter. I got a Bay 60 to 58mm adapter, can't remember where from or how much now.

    Ok, that sounds good. So I would need a Bay 60 to 67mm step up ring?

    Brian,

    That works. Check Heavystar's listings for buy it now prices. No hassle with bidding, etc. As I recall, prices are in the $7 to $15 range depending on where you shop.

    Or buy Bay 60 filters. They are bayonette mounted and much easier to handle then threaded filters.

    Warning!! Handling a Hasselblad can be harmful to your financial well being!

    Nothing beats a great piece of glass!

    Thanks Steve, but I already have quite a few very nice 67mm B&W color and polarizing filters.

    I didn't lnow there were plastic ones. I've had good luck buying metal hoods from him before for 35mm lenses. KEH lists them also. A phone call to them will answer all your questions.
