    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 particular camera was made in 1986.
    Winding crank (a £50 part!). A standard viewing screen can be added for an additional £25.
    Condition details:
    Cosmetic: Moderate wear.
    Optical: Mirror is clear and free of marks, debris and other imperfections.
    Mechanical: Fully working. The flaps do not fully close after an exposure, but require the crank handle to be turned. This does not affect the image or the camera’s operation. It could be corrected by a service which would cost around £80.
    Cosmetic Condition: 5
    (Complete, but showing signs of normal use or age.)
    Functional Condition: E
    (Everything functioning. Major functions have recently been professionally tested.)
