The V System
The V System – how it got called later on with the development of the H System aimed to be a small flexible and easily hand-holdable medium-format camera with interchangeable bodies, lenses, viewfinders, winders and film magazines.
Due to problems with the focal plane shutters in the 1600 F and 1000 F, the manual leaf shutter-based 6×6 camera Hasselblad 500C got into development.
The Hasselblad 500C came into production in 1957 and was produced until 1970. In 1970 it gave way to the Hasselblad 500C/M which was produced until 1994.
