Hasselblad 503CW Medium Format SLR Camera Body (Chrome) with Folding Waist Level Viewfinder and Split-Image Focusing Screen

B&H # HA503CWCQ Mfr # 30 10243
No Longer Available

The name "Hasselblad" is synonymous with image quality and reliability. Together with Carl Zeiss lenses, Hasselblad represents the highest standards of photographic craftsmanship and precision. The 503CW features a built-in TTL flash metering system, which automatically measures the light off the film for consistent flash exposures.

The Winder CW, which may be operated by remote control, makes the 503CW convenient to operate in or out of the studio. This completely manual and mechanical Single-Lens-Reflex camera is compact, lightweight, easy-to-use and meets the needs of both studio and location work. This 503CW comes equipped with an Acute-Matte D Focusing Screen with microprism and a split-image rangefinder spot.

The Hasselblad system contains a full line of lenses, viewfinders (metered and non-metered), film magazines (120, 220, 70mm and Polaroid), as well as many accessories. The 503CW is available in chrome or black finish.
