Which model was the last manufactured film dedicated hasselblad? I've been trying to find which one it is but can't.

Will all hassy lenses fit it or only the newest...I guess last film dedicated lenses. Is there such a thing?

Obviously a pointless question but I was wondering.

The 503CW is still made, or at least its still available new. However, it has provisions for a digital back, and there was a 503CWD version produced at some point.

The 503CW is still made, or at least its still available new. However, it has provisions for a digital back, and there was a 503CWD version produced at some point.

Small corrections:
- The 503 CW doesn't have provisions for a digital back. Just as no other Hasselblad model, except the 555 ELD (and you could have a 303 or 205 modified).

Hasselblad had been the 'target platform' for all digital back makers. Until Hasselblad decided to try to close their H-system for backs not made by Hasselblad, there was no back made (except by Rollei) that wouldn't work without a problem on a 'regular' Hasselblad camera, whether made in the 1950s or the 2000s.

- The 503 CWD was not a different camera, but a kit consisting of a normal 503 CW (though with different badge and chromed wind crank arm), an 80 mm lens, and a Hasselblad CFV 16 MP digital back. The kit was available for a short time, to mark one of many Hasselblad anniversaries.
So also no provisions for a digital back on the 503 CWD. There's no need for such provisions.


And a note about the lenses:
Yes, every V-system lens ever made will work on the 503 CW, provided it has a shutter in it. (The shutterless F/FE lenses will work too, but you will only have the 'un-timed' rear auxillary shutter to control the exposure. Works for times of about 1 second or longer. So not really. :wink:)
