I've travelled with a Hasselblad - it's a beautiful camera no doubt, and enormously capable. But I still wouldn't call it travel-friendly. Having the ability to change lenses and backs invites you to bring along multiples of each, at which point you're no longer light-weight and compact. I had my Hassy outfit with me in Spain back a few years ago, which was 3 backs, a 500 C/M, 50, 80 and 120 lenses, and a Superwide. Well, that filled a LowePro backpack with built-in waist support. All in all the bag plus the gear was tipping the scales around 30 lbs. I got great shots, but even with the ergonomic backpack I was regretting the weight. In the circumstances, the Hasselblad became a Bloody Hassel!
