    ARGH My financial calculator keeps telling me to go the H3D route, now that I know Hasselblad will service them.

    I REALLY want the new Phase stuff, but it's astronomically out of my budget at the moment. Someday, though...

    So I learned something today. The Hasselblad H3D is compatible with film backs. So H3D it is!

    It's an H3D-39. In pristine condition. :D I can't wait to use it. Hopefully the lens comes soon...

    Really...no lens? Someone didn't plan this out very well. :D
    Glad you got what you wanted, I am sure it will be very serviceable for you.

    It's only got 25k shots and is absolutely MINT, so I imagine it will be. It was listed as BGN at KEH. I have no idea why... This thing is in almost like new condition. It was only $2200 for some reason too. I freaking stole it lol

    It's coming Friday, so I hope to use it this weekend for a sunrise over Lake Michigan.

    Lens arrived today! Been having fun with it. Surprisingly, it's the 150mm N version. I thought I was buying the original version. Pleasantly surprised to say the least.
