Welcome Hasselblad 500CM w/80mm CF Lens

Welcome to Big Mountain Photography

I’m hooked on medium format film as it’s fun to shoot and the final images can range in size from 6×4.5, 6×6, 6×7, 6×9, 6×12 or 6×17.  I find the 6×6 format (aspect ratio, 1:1) as the most challenging for composition and most satisfying when you nail it.  Are you thinking about giving analog photography a try?  If so, consider medium format as the equipment is reasonable and readily available, i.e. on eBay.

For those unfamiliar with medium format film, let me bring it back to a full-frame perspective, i.e. 35mm (or 135).

There is not a lot I can say that hasn’t been said numerous times before by many passionate film photographers.  For some, the “Hassey” is an iconic camera of times gone by.  Not familiar with a Hasselblad, let me share Matt Day‘s video on the Hasselblad 500CM: Click Here
