century. Even some of the early camera models are still in use after
all these years. The user manuals that come with original equipment
often donít survive so long, however. This can result in less

To remedy this, a collection of manuals both new and old, is now
available for Hasselblad users directly from the Hasselblad website.
The collection covers a good number of the most popular camera models
and accessories that have been produced. They are printer optimized PDF
documents made from the original manuals often condensed to make them

the more common languages have been produced over the years too. Copies
of some of these might be obtainable from the some Hasselblad partners
and distributors around the world. Please contact them for
availability. Alternatively, both printed and electronic versions of
some manuals are available through various sources on the Internet, for

to carry on the fine and well-established tradition of creating supreme
Hasselblad imagery, regardless of model.
