The Hasselblad H2F Medium Format Auto Focus SLR Camera is another camera built in the fine tradition of Hasselblad. This feature-packed camera offers the professional photographer who still likes to shoot film total command over his/her images.

Built on the same design as the H2 digital camera, this auto and manual focus camera gives the pro shooter all the benefits of an "H" series camera but with a nod towards the traditional film world. Along with full use of the superior "H" series lenses, the H2F will deliver pro images for the pro shooter - or anyone wanting to use a high-end medium format 6x4.5 film camera.

Everything about this camera is high-performance. From the large, bright viewfinder which delivers crisp, clear views to the over 30 programmable functions in the body, this machine has more than something for everyone. The design includes four buttons which allow you to finesse the camera with short-cuts to reach your favorite programs rapidly and efficiently.

The built-in flash, primarily used as a fill flash has a guide number of about 24 and can be adjusted to -2 stops. When used as intended, this "pop" flash can open shadows on a bright day just enough to render detail in a shadow area at minimal distances. In addition to the fill flash, by using the SCA 3902 Flash Adapter, any flash compatible with the SCA3002 system can be used. This will give you the option to use any one of a number of flashes - small or large - to achieve flash exposure not possible with other cameras.

From data imprinting to the dot-matrix LCD display, to the exclusive "Profile" function, the H2F is  a tough, professionally rated camera for the serious photographer.

    In 2012 it is NOT digital back capable

      Comments about Hasselblad H2F Medium Format Auto Focus SLR Camera Body ONLY:

      This camera is a great film camera. In 2012, it is not supported by Hasselblad in the form of a digital back. No third party or Hasselblad digital back currently on the market can be mounted to it. Hasselblad did not cover themselves with glory with this camera because every annoucement they made in relation to it was a back flip.
      Buy it as a film camera (which is what I did). Do not entertain any notion that you can use it as a digital camera. This fact is not widely published and must be understood because the fact sheet that is in the Hasselblad website archive doesn't reflect this.

      Comments about Hasselblad H2F Medium Format Auto Focus SLR Camera Body ONLY:

      Since the introduction of the HCD28/4 I wished to use and own this lens. Unfortunately this isn't compatible to my H2 which 'forced' me to purchase the H2F. This camera allows you to use film or Hasselblad digital backs. Be aware that the 28/4 only works if a digital back is attached. Compared to the H2 there is now one more sub menu (digital) which allows quick access to a couple of functions related to the attached digital back. The prism finder HVD90x can be attached as well, which fits the cropped sensor perfectly due to its higher magnification. Build quality is as high as usual.
