Dedicated to aerial photography, this specialized version of the HC 35mm f/3.5 Lens from Hasselblad is a wide-angle prime offering an 89° angle of view. Differing from the standard lens range, this lens features a secure locking mount to significantly reduce unwanted vibrations and flexing on the lens-camera interface, and the rigid mount also ensures the image and sensor planes remain perfectly parallel at all times. Additionally, this lens has a locked focus position at infinity as well as dedicated firmware to close the central shutter and aperture mechanism to their working positions when power is applied to the camera system.
The lens employs an 11 elements in 10 groups optical design, along with low dispersion glass, to control aberrations and distortions, as well as deliver a high degree of sharpness, clarity, and illumination from edge to edge. Additionally, the central shutter unit affords a shutter speed range up to 1/4000 sec.
