The Hasselblad 501CM is a lightweight, compact camera, designed with one thing in mind: taking the best pictures possible. Every detail has been engineered from the ground up with the photographer in mind, resulting in a camera that does what it's supposed to do, year after year after year. No bells and whistles, just the utmost in quality; simple and straightforward.
Thanks to the innovative GMS (Gliding Mirror System), it produces a full viewfinder image with virtually all Hasselblad lenses.
The 501CM is a fully mechanical, medium-format, single-lens reflex camera, featuring interchangeable lenses, viewfinders, film magazines and a host of other accessories.
