The Swedish company goes 'back to the future' by releasing the CFV-50c CMOS digital back for its V System cameras

The new CMOS sensor-based digital back – the CFV-50c – is engineered to work on almost every V camera made by Hasselblad since 1957.

Its release sees the Swedish company align old and new technology, directly targeting users of its discontinued V System cameras.

“We have experienced a substantial resurgence of interest in our iconic V cameras – users love the traditional ergonomics and the unique appearance,” says Hasselblad CEO Ian Rawcliffe, in a press statement. “Our research has shown that although we no longer manufacture V models, there is a big demand from our dedicated V System users who want to be able to continue to use their classic cameras but also desire access to our latest technology.

Hasselblad 500C by JESSE STRUYVELT

It's the entrance level SLR film Hasselblad as of today. From the outside it has almost the same looks as the 500C/M, 503CW/CX. It's sturdy, it's beautiful and expensive. I only shot one roll of Kodak Portra 400 with it, but I fell in love with the camera. There was no actual need to have it, it was just nice to have. Which is also the reason why it got sold after a while. It feels very natural to work with the camera which makes you automatically know how to hold and shoot it.
