Phase One Digital backs with Hasselblad 200 Series camera bodies.

Last updated: 04-01-2016

Problem

Are Phase One digital backs compatible with Hasselblad 200 series camera bodies?

Solution

Phase One backs will work on a Hasselbad 200 series body with a special workaround. The shutterwheel on the body needs to be set to "C" in order to disable the built-in shutter. Only C, CB, CF, CFA, or CFi lenses can be used. These lenses have a built-in shutter. This way the camera will operate like the Hasselblad 500 series cameras. The FE lenses have no shutter build-in.

The CF lenses work on the Hasselbad 200 series camera bodies in the following way: the focal plane shutter must be locked open on the body and the leaf shutter in the CF lens is used just like on a V body. 

Phase One backs designed for Mechanical Hasselblad (V-series) are compatible but with the following limitations. 

  • 201 F - Does not work with FE Lenses. Use C, CB, CF, CFA, or CFi lenses
  • 202 FA - Not recommended
  • 203 FE - Does not work with FE Lenses. Use C, CB, CF, CFA, or CFi lenses
  • 205 FCC - Does not work with FE Lenses. Use C, CB, CF, CFA, or CFi lenses


For information on the use of your Hasselblad 200 series camera with the lenses mentioned above please refer to the documentation that came with your Hasselblad camera.

The 2000 series are simply older versions of the 200 series.
