The Hassy

Although photography today has mostly moved over to digital, there is still a love of the old school in the industry. Of film cameras, I would say Hasselblad‘s are some of the most beloved. Hasselblad medium-format cameras have been around for years, and actually, not until doing some research via Wikipedia had I realized that the majority of the still images taken during the Apollo space missions when we first landed on the moon, were made with Hasselblad cameras.

Of course there have been updates due to the transition to digital, with models being designed with the intent to use them with ditial backs.

For a different, and likley cheaper option, I came across a cardboard Hasselblad

pinhole camera via PetaPixel. Kelly Angood designed the pinhole model, which looks like a replica of Hasselblad camera. You can check out additional views of her pinhole model as well as images taken with it at her website. There is a also a Tumblr she’s created to gather images of other users the Hasselblad pinhole. I’m kind of interested in trying this out myself!
