Dear Levi,
I am not concerned. I just find it funny, how hard you find to admit you made a small error. However, I think we are digressing too far from the object of this writing, which should be the enjoyment of SWC. Why don't you post some of your colourful pictures made with this camera?
I don't shoot colour, but here is one of my old favourites:

I don't shoot colour, but here is one of my old favourites:
I posted links to the math that show the exact differences, for those interested, and then I admitted that there was obviously a 5mm discrepancy (most people are capable of simple math themselves, without me explaining it to them) and explained why I hadn't found that difference relevant to the discussion. If that was not enough then please enjoy your victory.

Haha...
You know Levi, in Italy arguments like the one we have talked about are called: " questioni di lana caprina" and in the middle ages they were concentrating around the question how many devils will fit on a tip of a pin. I hope you won't feel that I have some personal stake here, BTW it is likely that we originate from the same corner of the world.

On the other hand, a 72mm wide negative covered with a 43mm lens will exhibit a wider horizontal angle of coverage, than a 56mm wide negative with a 38mm lens, as 43/72=0.6 and as above 38/56=0.68.
I hope this helps. Anyway, you might enjoy looking at this, just to make sure you are not missing something:

I agree with all the foregoing, except that the hasselblad A12 film back is masked to 54 by 54mm. You may want to do a slight adjustment for that.

I know this is an old thread, but I don't think the SWC ever goes out of style. I just picked up a mint SWC/M with T* lens coating and have started shooting on the street with it in New York. I suppose the camera does attract some attention but shooting such that I don't raise the camera to my eye seems to make it less obvious, and doesn't cause people to react like raising my Leica to my face seems to do.

People are very tuned into whether a camera is being pointed at them. I tried to photograph a kid holding onto a railing in the subway like he was behind prison bars, and as soon as he saw me raise my Leica to my face, he stepped back. If a six year old knows when a camera is being pointed at him, everybody else does too.

I'm shooting Delta [email protected] to try to get my shutter speeds up. I sure like the ability to easily shoot something that is three feet in front of me without worrying about trying to focus on it. Hyperfocal and be there.

The SWC is one of those cameras that I haven't ever tried but would love to.

This is the camera that is still linking me to film. I want to return to film because of the SWC.

Two cameras I will never part with: the Hasselblad SWC and the brooks veriwide 100.
Wideangle at its best in square and 6x10 format. Enjoy your SWC. Ps: I don't use the viewfinder: just guess. If You have to practice: try bare bow shooting first.

I'm with you there, guessing is another level of freedom.

I'm been inspired by the work of Giorgia Fiorio. She's done amazing work with the SWC, some of it might be through guessing, some probably not.

I noticed quite a bit of lens flare in my first two rolls so I bought the round shade for the SWC/M. I don't think the rectangular one is the right one for the SWC/M but would like to hear what people think.

Some cameras are special. The SWC is a special camera. I also consider the Rolleiflex 2.8f to be special, along with the Leicas, of course. I don't think I'll ever part with this camera, it's small and easy to handle, and and a lot of fun to shoot with.

I will use my SWC (with a flash) to take photos of someone well known. The lens is sharp, and there is no need to focus. I will practice this coming weekend with this set-up.

The SWC lenses with Synchro-Compur shutter all take a round hood, which also acts as the series filter retainer. Be sure you get Hasselblad series filters ... they are offset in the mount so that they don't contact the SWC lens' front element. The later models with CF lens take a square Bay 60 sized hood.

Note that one of the changes when the 903SWC came out was a new surface treatment in the body to reduce internal flare... I've noticed that my '78 SWC flares a tiny bit more than the 903 did.

I sent out today five rolls of 120 film that I used with my SWC in Italy during the summer of 2013. I had the film frozen since then. It is ISO 160 C-41 AGFA film, I think. I mailed the rolls to TheFindLab. I want this to be (hopefully) starting me finally to use the SWC more often. I will post here any results worthwhile posting from the five rolls once I get back the scans.

I just scrolled through the whole thread waiting to see your long promised photos. I'm glad we will see some soon!

Agreed, and just when I thought I had cured the SA itch...

The photos from the SWC and the SA seem to have a similar feel, I wonder if it is the symmetrical wide angle that gives it that look?

Just looking at the design of the two, they look quite similar;

I forgot about the five rolls that I had taken with the SWC, but now they are being developed and scanned by TheFindLab.

I hope they come out well.

The film was exposed in 2013, and it was developed and scanned a week ago.
I will use the SWC more often from now on.

I used a roll of 220 NPS 160 film here. The colors came out quite bad, in my opinion, so I removed the colors with PS. In fact, the film had some light leaks, and some places were coverd with red. I played with PS and I managed to save some images by going to B&W and/or by cropping from the square images.

I wish I could afford such a mega expense, Emile. The digital back costs a fortune, and it could be that my particular model is too old for a digital back.
