Hasselblad V system

Discontinued

The Hasselblad V system comprised equipment for superlative photography. It was a camera system representing the ultimate in precision and dependability. The system offered the photographer options for tackling every conceivable photographic situation. That is why the Hasselblad V-system cameras and lenses were the choice of professional photographers and advanced amateurs all over the world, in space, on land, and beneath the sea.

A system with maximum interchangeability was the concept behind the Hasselblad V system. This means that the various camera models, no matter when they were made, accepted the system's accessories almost without exception. That is why Hasselblad cameras and lenses retained their value over the years and represented an investment that really paid off in the long run.

Hasselblad lenses with leaf shutters are indicated with a C (C, CF, CB, CFi and CFE). The lenses that have a designation F and an F setting on the shutter speed ring can also be used on focal plane shutter cameras.

The original Carl Zeiss C lenses made until 1981 had a design with interlocked aperture and shutter speed rings. On CF lenses, introduced in 1982, aperture and shutter speed rings are no longer interlocked but can be locked together when desired.

On CFi lenses, the flash connector is equipped with a cable locking device. CFE lenses are identical to CFi types but also have the electronic databus connections for the light metering system in the 200 series cameras.

In the CB lenses, Carl Zeiss eliminated some features like the F setting. CB lenses can be used on focal plane shutter cameras (except the 202FA), but the exposure must be made with the shutter in the lens.

The Carl Zeiss F lenses were originally designed for the 2000 series cameras and did not have the electronic coupling to the camera body. F lenses became TCC types with electronic databus connections when the 205TCC camera was introduced and were changed later, in name only, to the FE types.
