Speaking if cameras… I’ve gotta talk about Hasselblad cameras cuz they fucking rule. I got my first one back in 1982. It was 500ELM, black and so damn awesome. I used it like crazy and it never let me down. It was built to last and go to the moon. I ended up with a couple more bodies and a half dozen lenses by the time I was done. I loved the square format, the lenses were the best, 12 shots on a roll and I loved how it felt in my hands.
Now days I use a Hasselblad H1. I’ve had it for 10 years and it never let me down once (knock on wood)! It does everything I need and I have no need for any other camera! I use it with a Phase One P25 digital back and I’ve never shot one roll of film through it. I love this camera, but honestly its time for an upgrade. Some day soon I’m going to upgrade my camera and digital back. I want the latest and greatest, but who has 50k to drop on a camera/back? That’s the only thing that bothers me these days… Cameras are stupid expensive!!! Even my system cost me more than a BMW! Holy fuck, that’s crazy!
