Coming later this month, the WRS-HV lens plate allows you to mount lenses from the Hasselblad-500 series, in combination with the WRS series camera.

This combination will work with those digital backs that have an electronic shutter option, which works as a shutterless digital back, such as the PhaseOne IQ3-100 and the new IQ-4 series.


The aperture of the lenses can be set manually. The WRS-HV does not cock or fire the lens’ leaf shutter.
The practical use of lenses may be limited to those that have enough image circle coverage for the used digital back when using shifts.

The availability of Hasselblad lenses of the 500 series goes back a long time and this also gives you the opportunity to use particular old style legacy lenses, as well as very long focal lengths without the extreme physical extension of symmetric LF lenses.

 

Hasselblad lens not included.
