    Hello folks.
    Im pretty new to photography and one day new to medium format.
    The 500c/m just arrived with an 80mm lens, 2 backs and some other corn.
    It has some issues.

    The 24 back has the felt light seal peeling out from behind the slide
    the camera wont fire with the 12 back on as if the slide is still in place
    when focusing at infinity, the two images dont line up (the object is behind infinity focus)

    Can anyone help with these issues?

    Hi, congrats on the Hasselblad! you might have better luck by going to the Collector's Corner in the film section of this site. Light seals are usually no problem but I don't own a Hasselblad.

    Well I found you have to "rewind" the 12 back a little or else it wont fire
    I get a set to fix the 24 back
    that leaves the focus problem
    The viewfinder focus and the actual focus are out of sync
    the viewfinder tells me to focus in back of the image
    tried changing the screen and prism but no luck
    any ideas?
