Hasselblad discontinues film camera

Hasselblad with 50mm wide angle back in 1975 or so.

Sorry to see this end but perfectly understandable.   I must have shot thousands of rolls of film, polaroid out of a polaroid back, et with mine.  Dad bought my first one for me in 1972.  Had one ever since.  Now that film has gotten obsolete I shoot only sheet film in holders, hardly ever any rolls.  Jackson took one to Canyon de Chelly last year.

Jackson last year with the 50mm I shot the photo above with....37 years before!

Classic, flexible and wonderful camera.  I'm sure I will use mine a little more.
