so guess what? i decided to buy a hasselblad. i KNOW.

i’m damn excited about it and that photo above is from the first test roll i shot. (for the camera nerds out there, i bought a used 500c/m, with the standard 80mm planar lens.) i think we’re going to get along along very well.

this weekend, i’m planning to drink guinness with some friends and i can’t wait. have a good one.

    jealous, jealous, jealous. I’ve been looking at one myself, but my husband just bought a V-Pan panoramic film camera. Now I have to wait. :(
    Enjoy your new toy. Can’t wait to see more photos.

    so happy for you, my Hassy-brother :)

    Oh my god, so jealous of you. I wish I could steal my dad’s…but it’s like his baby. I think he likes his Hasselblad more than me.
    Can’t wait to see your pictures taken by the Hasselblad soon!

    Wow! I’m happy for you…and so so jealous!! Can’t wait to see more.

    Congrats! Beautiful first shot, I’m excited to see more

    Dude I am so happy for you and your camera! I spoke with another person last night who bought a used one too, same model as yours, and he said it works very well. The idea is becoming more and more appealing. Did you find it on ebay or from a camera shop? Any help in finding a deal on one would be greatly appreciated (by all, I imagine)!

  14. March 26, 2011 5:31 pm

    ooooooh nice! look forward to seeing the more!

  15. March 26, 2011 7:32 pm

    aaaah. i’ve always dreamt of having my own. think that you’ve inspired an ebay hunt. although i have one rule. i can only buy more kit from funds that i make through my pics……better get shooting. who do you use for processing?

  16. March 27, 2011 10:40 am

    ahhhh, my dream camera exactly!
