hasselblad lens on canon 7d

I recently picked up a load of old camera equipment with a friend of mine Rob, and in it was a Hassleblad 500c/m which is great, I don't do much studio/ portrait photography any more so I was trying to figure out what to do with it, I was thinking of getting a digital back for it and just using it for fun but its alot of money for a holiday camera! So I bought an adapter for my 7d so I can use it aas one of my kit lenses!

Just arrived totally geeking out and will post lots of test images later whooo!


  1. Please send me some pics or videos if you did so. Do you have some samples on video?

    my email is

  2. hi ,
    can you shoot with the 5d or 7d , while stopping down the lenses ? I am gettign only wide open option

  3. Hi Rajat,

    Yes you can stop it down it works like any other manual lens so if you change the aperture on the hassy lens it will effect the exposure. It all needs to be done on the lens though and the camera should be set to manual.

  4. Thanks for review, it was excellent and very informative.
    thank you :)
