I don't know if this has been posted before, but a fascinating interview of Victor Hasselblad on Swedish TV from 1967.

You're welcome.It is always great to hear the voice and stories from the subjects themselves. And I learned a lot of things I did not previously know. I was a bit surprised that his house was full of paintings on the wall, not a single photograph--at least what was shown in the profile.

Somewhat of an aside, but he says that the inital working camera was developed for the Air Force in 1943 or so. Sweden was technically neutral in WWII, yes? Although leaning or at least accommodating to Germany? What would the Swedish Air Force have been doing, for whom, at this time? Or were the cameras supplied directly to a fighting air force?
