I'm a big vintage camera buff and remember all these.
I wonder maybe you had some of these cameras that were produced to go to space for Nasa.

used to capture the Armstrong..one step for mankind thing....and after that Blads were in vogue...way back in the 70s and 80s....

I managed to buy used ones ..the CM 500 and the motorized one ...but so damn expensive! even used! We never read or saw Nikons used in space missions.....

Now tis hard to go back and use roll film!

yup those Hasselblads are like the Rolex. Great resale value. Great cameras too.
Just a joy to use. Just love the square format with the notches to identify a Hasselblad was used to make exposure on film.
Makes me want to go find one to shoot.

funds or are a working pro....they now have a digital version costing a huge amount.
Back in the 80s I found the pentax 645 the perfect medium format camera. My buddy used the Fuji medium format for weddings along with his 35mm digital Olympus...ah those were the days! haha!
