A beautiful, classical old Hasselblad camera resides on the dark side of the moon, left there by the first ever men to walk on the moon. Although the Hasselblads on the moon have not tarnished, they are undoubtedly old school. They were film cameras.. Today the digital Hasselblad H1 is among the greatest of all digital cameras available. Things might have stayed the same on the moon, but not on earth. Hasselblad digital cameras have superseded the old film cameras down here on the pale blue dot.
Hasselblad does still specialize in larger format cameras, with the Hasselblad medium format being especially popular. Although the Hasselblad camera bodies have moved to digital, a Hasselblad lens is still the classic type, with incredible definition and depth.
When shopping for a modern Hasselblad online, be sure to investigate the ever popular Hasselblad 501cm camera. It is also sometimes referred to as the Hasselblad 500, although the exact measurement is 501. Then there is the Hasselblad 503cw for the connoisseur of Hasselblad photography. The Hasselblad Xpan is a great new lens that you seriously need to consider getting when you buy your Hasselblad H1 camera.
Getting back to the moon: with the 40th anniversary of the moon landing that took place in 2009, the name Hasselblad H1 was often in the news. It fascinates people to think that these extraordinary cameras are still up there, as good as new. The moon’s atmosphere is such that nothing ever ages or tarnishes. The astronauts must be sorry they could not stay up there too!
