Hasselblad 67

hi
use Pentax 67 for street photography and landscape, but lately I would use it there with flash, and shutter lenses of the sheet, I do not like.

found one on ebay Pentax 67, adjusted to bring Hasselblad V lenses, that's interesting.

you guys would know which hassel lenses V covers the 67 format?

read that the planar 100 3.5, Sonnar 180 4 150 4 Sonnar covers the larger format of Pentax, some wide angle?

would like to know before buying a 67 adapt.


thank you

Unfortunately the Pentax 67 and 67II bodies that have been converted to take Hasselblad lenses cannot use the central (leaf) shutters, they only work with the Pentax focal plane shutter, the Hasselblad lens is completely passive, you focus and manually stop down the lens.

What a shame it would be great if it were possible to use the lens with its leaf shutter
and not only in F

Why not just go for one of the native 67 mount LS lenses?
I would not want to be without my 165LS for portrait work.

many comments on the 165 ls realize that it is an inferior soft lens
the lens 180 as the Zeiss 2.8 mm or even 2.8 to 165.

found in a local store to 200 usd, afraid purchase. and have smoother images compared to the other two.

I have not seen anyone modified a V lens to 6X7 in my Hasselblad day, but I always got dark corners on the images made from a Polaroid back (~62mmX62mm). Therefore I think the V lens image circle will not cover the entire 6X7 area. I also tried the V lenses on different 35mm film cameras with adapters, and the images were not as sharp as those taken on the Hasselblad bodies. May be the adapters did not provide the correct distance needed. This adater issue should be something for you to consider on the modified Pentax 67.

As itsdoable mentioned, the Pentax use focal plane shutter in the body but the V lenses use leaf shutter. That will require open up the Pentax shutter first, then fire the leaf shutter on the V lens every time to take a photo. Definitely not an easy operation for street photography.

Try using this lens, then get back to us with your results. It is one of the best lenses made for the 6x7. It's design type is German and its cross section is similar to the 180mm Elmarit-R lens for the Leica SLRs.

It is very interesting information, difficult to find something on the subject,
just a comment in the net photo of alleged lenses cover the 6x7 format.
these would be here

Hasselblad 40mm f / 4 Zeiss Distagon CFI IF (supposed to be very sharp, must remove "hood" to avoid vignetting on 67)
Zeiss Sonnar 100mm f / 3.5 (easily covers 6x7)
Zeiss 110/2
Zeiss 150 / 2.8 and f4

A unique experience with different lenses, was the Zeiss 180 .28 for Pentacon six
and worked in the hasselblad gora, would be uncomfortable synchronize each
since the two shutters.

I can only second the response above, it is a fine lens indeed and very well suited for portraiture.
I have yet to bump into a user disliking it.

Yes it is a little more fiddly to use initially thanks to the P67 focal plane shutter as opposed to say the hassy V system which is leaf shutter based, but it does not have an impact on its optical qualities.

reading the comments of you think I have a chance then to 165 ls ?


this at a reasonable price would not be too disappointed if it does not work out for this value.

It's been a few years since I shot the P-6x7.

The 165mm-LS and 90mm-LS were good lenses, you should not be afraid to try them. When I did use them, they integrated and worked well with the P-6x7 using a hand held meter. It was a little more difficult with the meter prism, as after you determined the exposure, you had to reset the FP shutter to 1/30th and set the correct shutter speed on the lens' leaf shutter.

Actually there is no easy way to do this, the only way to trigger the Hasselblad central shutter is to release the key at the back of the lens, which cannot be accessed when the len is mounted. Then you need a screw driver (or thin coin) to re-cock it. If you want to use the leaf shutters in the Hasselblad lenses, the best way is to get a V-body (which are relatively cheap now) or an H-body. But you will not get 6x7 format.

I will follow the advice of you and buy the 165 ls

when I put some testing here.


I gave up the purchase of 67 very modified work if we do not know which lens cover 6x7 image.

There is much to like with the 165mm f4 LS lens -- even for landscape use!
