This is fantastic; it is great to see Hasselblad keeping the V series alive. Woot for the 205 with the 110.
Is the modification to use with the 203/205 cameras the same one that is already done, disabling the film back auto ISO capabilities?
Yes, this is the same modification to the 202/203/205 bodies which allowed the FE lenses to be used.
USING A MODIFIED 200 SERIES CAMERA WITH A CFV DIGITAL BACK
Please note the following practical points when using a 200 series camera modified for cable free
use with CFV digital backs:
• The cable-free solution only functions in conjunction with either:
F and FE lenses or CF/CFi/CFE lenses set in F-mode
• CF lenses can still be used in C-mode but a flash sync cable must be connected between the PC-
socket on the lens and the CFV digital back (see CFV manual for details).
Please note that using CF lenses in C-mode therefore does not require any modification to the
camera, only a flash sync cable connection.
• One consequence of the modification is that there is no data transfer of ISO setting from film
magazine or digital back. This means that the ISO dial on E magazines (and the zone system dial in
the case of older TCC magazines) will no longer function when connected to a modified camera body.
However, ISO settings can easily be made on the camera body instead.
• When using a CFV digital back, an ISO setting has to be made both on the body and on the back.
• Auto bracketing is not possible with a modified 203FE and CFV digital magazine, as the capture rate
of the CFV back is slower than the capture rate of the 203FE would be with film.
