Bollard (Hasselblad SWC/M)

Testing out the Hasselblad SWC/M, I took the shot below.

As you can see, that 38mm biogon lens captures the whole scene. This was Kodak Tri-X and then scanned by the lab from the negative. All in all the SWC is working correctly. I tested it with a light meter and the bracketed the aperture and shutterspeeds with predictable results. Now it’s time to find some worthy subject matter.

Instant Film Redux

Out making tests today, and that included some instant film. Loaded a pack of Fuji FP-100c into the Hasselblad holder, attached it to the SWC/M, and here’s one of the pics.

Gives an idea of what the frame will look like. Has it’s own look, instant film does. Part retro, part impressionistic, part something else. Either way, it comes in handy to have an idea what you’re getting before you start burning film, especially with a rangefinder camera. Get out there and make some images.
