So I picked up a 500 ELM as a back up body for my 500 C/M since I have been "collecting lenses" 40/50/80/120/150 for some time now and just love using the C/M. I got rather concerned that if the C/M went down I would be camrealess till I got it repaired so I picked up the ELM for 160 USD. Nice shape too.
I shot a roll of film with it and am satisifed that it functions as well as I believe it should (never used one before, but did read the Hasselblad instructions on it) So I will not feel so dependent on one body.
Thing is, I wonder if there are some unique ways of using the ELM far above what I have thought of as a backup. One thought was to do portraits, but that is a no brainer, but how about other useful things others have accomplished with a motorized V model.
Looking for your suggestions. Thanks in advance for your replies.
