I recently purchased a Hasselblad 500CM and wanted to get up to speed with it. While I have a fair amount of experience with film and digital photography, I'm still a novice when it comes to the medium format world. This manual has been a great help. Clear writing, good organization, helpful diagrams. It's an excellent resource, even though it is rather dated (I believe the most current version is the 8th edition, and this is the 4th.) I purposely bought an older edition since the more recent ones devote a significant amount of text to the digital Hasselblads, which for me, remain only a dream (at least for now!).

There is some background material on photography that probably will be old hat to anyone with any degree of experience, but you don't feel like the author is talking down to you even on the basics. Plus, never hurts to go through the fundamentals again.

Highly recommend for anyone with a pre-digital Hasselblad.
To be fair, I think many have gotten spoiled by the point and shoot ease of even sophisticated SLRs. I think most people buy cameras, turn them to auto and rarely if ever change lenses and even when they do they know little about the equipment they're using; this is not condescending, its just indicative of our time crunched culture. Though, if you're like me and enjoy the act of creating images on film and happen to use a film based Hasselblad then you're likely to want to really know the equipment that creates your vision.

This book reads like a textbook, its a very detailed insight into the Hasselblad cameras, lenses and accessories. Its goes beyond marketing jargon and helps explain the nuances of your equipment so that you know not just how to use it but how and what makes it work. If you're using a 'Blad then you owe it to yourself to know it, to understand it, this book ill help you do just that. Its not light reading, then again it isn't supposed to be.
If you are interested in owning, collecting, operating Hasselblad cameras, then you really need to have a copy of this! To my knowledge, Ernst Wildi is one of the most respected authorities in medium format photography and one of the gurus in Hasselblad history. Just about everything one needs to know about using any "Hassy" or "'blad", new or old, is in this book. It includes how-to on accessories, lenses, film backs - you name it! This makes a great reference. Wildi's style is easy to read, intelligent but not arrogant, and mostly done from the perspective of a teacher or coach. Wildi is an excellent photographer, by the way! So, curl up in your easy chair with your beautiful Hasselblad in your lap, and read about its pedigree and how you can make beautiful pictures!
Everything I needed learn about lenses, filters and filmbacks!
I guess this could be considered a bible of sorts for Hassy geeks.
A solid resource for those looking for additional/historic Hasselblad information. The book was clean and well preserved. Thanks!
I need to use the hasselblad more than i do. The book is a good guide for hasselblad users.
If you have a film Hasselblad, this edition of The Hasselblad Manual is for you. If you have a digital, you probably want the most recent edition.
