Hasselblad user manuals now available from their website - English versions of manuals to accompany most popular Hasselblad cameras have been made available to download.
Hasselblad has been producing photographic equipment for over half a 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 than optimum use at best or even problems at worst.
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 manageable even for those without access to a broadband internet connection.
Most of these downloadable versions are in English only but manuals in 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 example.
The aim of this collection is to help Hasselblad users around the world to carry on the fine and well-established tradition of creating supreme Hasselblad imagery, regardless of model.
The cameras are out there; all you have to do is exploit their tremendous potential!
Manuals for the Hasselblad V system can be found here and for the Hasselblad X system here.
