I'm looking for some information.  I have a Hasselblad 500CM that I am thinking of selling.  I have two film backs, 3 lenses (60mm, 80mm and a 120mm), polaroid back, filter holder along with filters.  I am having focusing issues where the focusing screen is going black and making it nearly impossible to focus.  I love macro work and this is what I want to work on but am spending too much time on focusing! 

My questions are:
1. If I sell, would this set be worth more than a $1,000?
2. Are there digital backs that would fit on this body?
3. If I keep it, how can I resolve the focusing issue? (my screen is a grid with the center split magnification circle)

Any input would be appreciated.

I have not used one of these camera....first the digital backs...yes...you can...the PhaseOne LightPhase which is a 6mp back that has to be tethered to use...would be fine with the camera...I have one for sale for $450.00....second...the black focusing screen..is your DOF stuck on...Huh if that is not the case...get yourself a cheap LED ring light to put at the front of the lens....you can pick-up a cheapy from ebay for about 40USD...this will give light at the front of the lens...which in turn should make the prisim less...dark..just the nature of split-prisms and low light situations...

The type of back you want is a Hasselblad V digital back....

Hope this helps some....Tony C.

if the camera is in a good shape, it should bring 600-800 usd. Each lens in good shape is also about 500 usd. I assume this are the black CF lenses, not the previous silver ones of the 500C. If not sure, send me a picture.

Is your whole screen going black or only the middle (1 inch)?

There are many digital backs youc an put on it. Try to find a CFV16 or a CFV22 from Hasselblad. It looks like a fim back, with a Sony battery attached at the bottom.

Let me know if you need more help.

The strobe will work just fine at any shutter speed on the Hasselblad.

The digital back will be fine as well, I could not imagine a digital back made for a Hasselblad having any kind of limitations as far as a strobe is concerned, You would have heard ghastly screams from miles away by many if the digital back for Hasselblad did not work fully with a strobe.
