instruction manual


somehow the attachement thing does not work -send your email adress of line and i will send the pdf to you that way regards ruben


Again, the pdf seems to be to big to be attached within the mail facility of this forum - keeps coming up with an error message - so if you need the pdf just mail your email adress and i will send it off line - regards ruben

Hi Danilo,

I can send you the 500CM intstruction manual in english , if you are interested in (I do think there is so many difference with 501CM) and if you give me you email adress.

For all there's a lot of material links in a french web

Go to the top of this very page you are reading now, click on "Manuals", and save $10 and/or postage.

But don't be fooled by where it says "PDF-Manual of Hasselblad 501 CM". That link just leads to an advertising leaflet.

Read the 500 C/M manual you can find there, and know that apart from the fixed wind crank, the missing locking lever on the shutter release, the body ready signal (all features the 500 does have, but the 501 does not) all that it says in there also applies to the 501.
