The name Hasselblad is synonymous with image quality and reliability. Together with Carl Zeiss lenses, Hasselblad represents the highest standards of photographic craftmanship and precision. The 500C/M is the legendary model of the Hasselblad system. 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. The 500CM is an excellent entry to the world of medium format 6 x 6cm photography.

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.
