I’m looking to purchase a copy of the Hasselblad Manual by Ernst Wildi. I’m trying to choose between the 5e and the 6e.

I own a Hasselblad 203fe and I want to make sure the manual I buy covers that specific model. The front cover of the 5th Edition has a photo of the Hasselblad 205tcc on it.

But the 205tcc was released in 1991 and the 203fe wasn’t released until 1994 and the 5the Edition was published in 1999. And I imagine there was probably quite a bit of lead time in writing that book.

Can anyone with either the 5e or 6e look at their copies and let me know if the 5e covers the 203fe specifically?

Also, can someone upload the table of contents of the 5e and the 6e? I ask because the 5e is 464 pages long while the 6e is only 384 pages long. I don’t care about any of the H System or digital stuff. I want to know exactly what was cut out of the 6e when the removed those 80 pages.

Thank you.

I believe that 5e is more comprehensive, but I cannot tell you whether 6e will have the 203fe since I have an earlier edition.

Fifth Edition specifically includes 203FE in the TOC.

The content includes:

[Chapter 2, Hasselblad Cameras]
This camera is identical to the 205FCC, but haas a center metering system (not a spotmeter) and automatic bracketing in 1/3 stop increments.

[Chapter 8, The 200 Series...]
About 28 pages of content.

Perhaps you might look into the content of the 1995 4th Edition (revised) more than the 6th?
