Hasselblad Adaptor



Hi, just wondering if anyone has used the Hasselblad adaptor? I recently purchased one used, and it does not have a manual. On inspection, the unit is very well built, and there is even the little circular crank shaft type thing on the mount. How does this work? Do I just stop down the lens after focusing and then take a photo? What is the deal with metering? Also, do all blad lenses work? CF, F, FE, etc, etc. Thanks for your comments.

David, Just as you have suggested stop the lens down and everything is perfect. Either focus first of all and stop down or use normally after f8 it is a bit dark but don't forget the focus confermation works so in dark lighting you can rely on it.
If you need a faster flash sync for the odd shot you can lock the Contax on B and fire from the Hasselblad lens up to 1/500 sec. You can use all the lenses except for the new H1 as the mount is different. Bob
