Inoperative Hasselblad 1000F reaching lofty heights

  1. I've been watching this listing with interest - admittedly at first as a potential buyer. However the bids have gotten just crazy with 9 hours to go. In all fairness the camera body, magazine, and finder are in excellent cosmetic shape. The lens has a dented filter ring and the shutter is jammed. Inoperative shutter is the primary failure point and cause of death for these early cameras especially if left unused. Checking Hasselblad shipping records, the lens and body were mated at the factory but the magazine is not original to the camera. Looking at the film advance knob, the tell-tale bulge under the leatherette at the center of the knob indicates the last tech to touch this camera was - to put it nicely - unfamiliar with these cameras. Will this set a new high water mark for inoperative 1000Fs.?

  2. And with only a Tessar lens!

    At least you (usually) get a decent Biometar lens with a non-working Pentacon 6.:rolleyes:
     
  3. ... and the Biometar is not only better, it's not radioactive!
