In Stock
Free Expedited Shipping
You Pay: $1,125.00

The Hasselblad CF Adapter allows all lenses from the V-system to be used on H-system camera bodies. This automatically expands the potential lens range for H cameras by more than a dozen different focal lengths.

This is a truly useful accessory for professional photographers who need occasional access to specific lenses not used in their everyday work
The automatic focusing system in the H camera can be used as a guide for manual focus setting
Light is measured at full aperture with all lenses which produces aperture and shutter speed information display in the camera for manual setting
With CFE lenses, however, a preset aperture is automatically transferred to the camera
Shutter cocking is manual with all lenses and is swiftly carried out by an easily accessible lever
Dimensions 3.4 x 4.4 x .8" (86 x 112 x 20mm) (approx.)
Weight 5oz (135g)

    Comments about Hasselblad CF Lens Adapter for the H Series Cameras:

    With this gear, the C type lenses from the Hasselbad V system work as good as with the V bodies, with the advantage of a modern H body.

    A real pleasure.

    The only limitation is that the 6*6 format is not available on H bodies, but only 6*4.5

    The manual shutter cocking is easy to handle, but sounds "old-fashioned".

      Comments about Hasselblad CF Lens Adapter for the H Series Cameras:

      I've just recently bought a used CF Adapter. I thought it would be a great addition to my Hasselblad collection in that I could use all the V lenses on my nice new H3DII. Wrong, or, partially wrong. Now, this is not to say that all used adapters out there have these same characteristics but it is something to ask questions about if you're thinking of going in the used direction.
      When I first twisted the adapter onto the body, it had that good old solid Hasselblad feel to it. Then I twisted and poked a nice nearly new Distagon 50 mm lens into the adapter and hooked up the PC cord that's needed to communicate the lens shutter release with the adapter to synchronize the body with the lens so that the camera knows a shot had been taken. Here's where the problem came in. When it was time to push that shutter release down nice and gently halfway, to do all the stuff we like to do at that famous halfway point of the shutter release...well, the camera kind of sat there and came out with this dumb comment, as if to say,... huh? Yes, that's right, the camera didn't know the button had been pushed as far as the lens was concerned and did not even know that there was a lens attached. It was only after I pushed the shutter-cocking lever several times and/or fiddled with it did I even get any acknowledgement that a lens was attached to the camera. If it had worked correctly, the LCD display would have queried what type of lens was it that I had attached to the adapter and after telling it which one, I would have been happily on my way of pushing the shutter release button further down into the camera's body and heard that lovely 'FA-LOP' that you hear on those big medium formats when the mirror flops up and down.
      So, if this is any help to you, you may want to question how well the adapter communicates with the body before you go plunking down those hard-earned bucks on one of these used money gobblers.

      Comments about Hasselblad CF Lens Adapter for the H Series Cameras:

      This adapter enables the use of all V series lenses (lenses made after 1957) on the Hasselblad H model cameras. All of the metering features on the camera are retained. CFE lenses provide aperture priority mode and wide open metering is done with any lens. Ev is displayed on an LCD screen and a jog wheel selects setting combinations at that light level.

      A lever on the adapter, that winds the lens, requires quite a bit of force to operate. A multi-stroke design might have helped with that.
