Hasselblad 500 EL is a system camera this means that almost everything is interchangeable: lens, prism/finder, and film back.
In 1964 Hasselblad started production of a motorized camera, the 500 EL. Apart from the housing that incorporates the motor drive and the NiCd-batteries this camera is similar in appearance and operation to theHasselblad 500 C and uses the same magazines, lenses and viewfinders.
The body is in V-system 500 series, uses only leaf-shutter lenses. There are various Carl Zeiss made C, CB, CFi/CFE series as Distagon, Planar, Biogon, Sonnar type lenses, with various focal lenghts, with Compurshutter for 500 series.
Hasselblad was the company that first developed the professional medium format modular SLR. Perhaps the most famous use of the Hasselblad camera was during the Apollo program missions when man first landed on the Moon. Almost all of the still photographs taken during these missions used modified Hasselblad cameras. Hasselblad’s traditional V-System cameras remain widely used by professional and serious amateur photographers. One reason is a reputation for long service life and quality of available lenses.
