Will this work on the H5D series?

Keep in mind that when you switch to this viewfinder you lose your in-camera metering.

Can I use strobe lights with this?
Asked by: C M.
The Hasselblad HVM Waist Level Viewfinder for H Series Cameras would have no effect on studio strobe usage with Hasselblad H-series cameras. It would only eliminate the usage of TTL or hot shoe flashes that are normally connected via the hot shoe on the top of the standard HV 90x / HVD 90x / HV 90x-II viewfinders. A PC sync terminal is located on the left-hand side of Hasselblad H-series bodies under a rubber plug protector. While TTL flashes cannot be used with the Hasselblad HVM Waist Level Viewfinder, studio strobes and wireless radio transmitters/transceivers may be connected via the PC sync for studio strobe usage.
