I Wrote a Review of the Hasselblad 501c

I've owned this camera for a year, it has been a lot more amazing than I thought it would be. I'm not very technical, it is more a compilations of my thoughts on the camera as to why I bought this model and why I really like this camera. Feel free to tell me if I've made a factual mistake, or lambast me for not knowing how to use proper punctuation.

My first hasselblad as well - big advantage over the 500c/m was the brighter focus screen.

I’m sure I managed to fit the meter knob on mine - perhaps by using the metal retainer from the plastic case that came with the meter knob. In the end I went back to the standard crank preferring to estimate exposure.

As you show, it’s a brilliant travel camera with WLF and 80mm, it is indeed quite compact.
It's the weird colour scheme that freaks me. Every time you try to operate one of these weird black controls, which are labeled in black on a black background, a small black light lights up black to let you know you've done it.
