    Hi all, I recently acquired this old AZ-1 Zoom and the only trouble it's giving me (so far) is the previous owners have completely chewed up the slot on the battery door. It's the kind where you push down the tab with a coin and slide the door open. Is there anything I can do to either replace...

    Issue with my new Hasselblad

    So I've just purchased my first Hasselblad, a 500 EL, with a back (A12) and waist level viewfinder.
