    I don't know where you can find an online manual, but here's how to load a 500 series Hasselblad

    THANKS KSMATT!!! I figured out how to load the film but the lens and adjusting aperture/shutter speed is tricky.

    The aperture and speed are set on the lens, assuming you have a 500 series like a C, CM, EL, ELX and ELM. There are two rings on each lens where you can set them, you might have to push in a little metal tab to get them moving.

    Also, if you have a 500 series C or CM make sure the body and lens are cocked before taing the lens off or putting it back. Otherwise they jam, luckily enough there is an unjamming tool (metal pen) that goes for about $30 on Ebay or you can do it with a screwdriver or a small coin.

    Good luck.
