    Hasselblad 500C bodies and 500C/M was made by Hasselblad between 1957 and 1994. The basic design is the same for all cameras made over that period, though there were many minor variations and changes. The only difference between the 500C and the 500C/M is that the C/M has an interchangeable focusing screen, whereas the 500C is fixed.

    This is a very early 500C/M. It is labelled a 500C but does have the interchangeable focusing screen, and known as a ‘transition’ body or a ‘500C-C/M’. 500C/M bodies upto serial number 130000 were delivered with a 500C label.
