In 1900, Eastman Kodak introduced the original Brownie camera, the first in a long-running series of affordable, easy-to-use cameras for the general public.
The Hasselblad 2000FCW was the third in the legendary Swedish company’s family of 6×6 focal plane shutter cameras. If you want to be able to use all Hasselblad lenses (including 13 lenses that can only be used with this
I’ve been photographing with analog cameras for over a decade now and this isn’t my first Hasselblad (previously owning a V-Series 500CM).
I have been using digital cameras for the past 20 years. Like many of us, my love of photography began when I was a young using a little Kodak Brownie camera.
Beloved of landscape photographers, especially those involved with supplying images for calendars and home decor products both before and well into the digital camera era, the Fuji Panorama GX617 was the final iteration of Fuji’s legendary behemoth panoramic medium
It’s a beast, this Pentax. It weighs a ton and it’s hard to hang on to. It’s slow, has a terrible synch speed and everything is in full stops.
Sometimes, when visiting websites or just browsing pinhole pictures, I would stumble upon strange images that were created with a Vermeer anamorphic camera from Poland. Wow, what’s that? It sure produces beautiful crazy images.
The Kodak Instamatic 500 was the “jewel in the crown’ of the Kodak Instamatic line.

I bought my Zeiss Ikon Nettar 6×6 folder in 1992 for $50, pretty much in perfect nick. At the time I was shooting a Mamiya RB67 professionally; exclusively running Fuji Velvia through it for magazine covers and editorial work.
I have had a Pentax 645 for few months and have really enjoyed using it, so this is an attempt to put some thoughts together on it.
I kicked off the previous article in this series by stating that in its V-System, Hasselblad created one of, if not the world’s most comprehensive and flexible medium format camera system.
Mention 6x6cm medium format film cameras to a photographer and most will immediately think Hasselblad. Mention Rolleiflex to the same group and they will almost certainly think of the well-respected range of twin lens reflex (TLR) cameras.
It’s been a little while since I have gone out to do some shooting with my Holga.
As a 6×6 format twin lens reflex camera, the Yashica Mat-124 TLR is considered a great entry-level camera for people who are moving up from 35mm to medium format film.

In this section of the Hasselblad V-system master guide, I’ll be taking a look at the first two generations of Hasselblad lenses. If you’re looking for lenses for your Hasselblad 500, 500CM 501 or 305 (whichever version), this is the place to start.
