    Oh! I forgot about it But i think that Hasselblad made a special edition of it's camera for moon expedition

Either way, I have only heard of problems when it's ridiculously cold (-40) on other Hasselblad bodies that require batteries. My thoughts are that if it's cold enough to effect your Hasselblad, it's probably too cold to be out shooting.
    What is CLA? Is that an repair service or something like that?

    It´s a maintenance service, stands for: clean, lubricate, adjust.

    I have brought up a 500C/M and a SWC to both the top of Mt Blanc, Matterhorn and even in Himalaya (but only to BC, so actually warmer then the alps) and there is no problem. I have even used them during the winter season were weather is really really cold (below -20, in any scale

    So no worry, just use it, its a work horse

    All depends on the state of the grease in your camera and lens though.
    If it is old, and stiff, it will cause problems. Cameras and lenses that have been CLA-ed recently will be fine.

    The first thing you will notice of a cold related problem is the shutter becoming a bit slower, i.e. shutterspeeds longer.

    One other thing, though, is the film itself. It can become dry and brittle. So wind on slowly.

    how does temperature actually affect the response of the film to light?
    does it affect it? or is that neglectable?

    well, film is rated at 20 C (i think), and i have shoot film in the alps during both winter ans summer season and (personal) first i exposed a bit more (1-2 stop) when it was cold (0/-10/-15/-25 C) but i have stopped doing that, the difference is so little that you dont have to think about it.

    I am 100% sure that someone else will say the opposite
