If you are a photography enthusiast, you might be interested in learning how to use off-camera flash with the Hasselblad 500cm. This is a classic medium format film camera that has a different shutter mechanism than most modern digital cameras. In this article, DistPhoto will explain how the Hasselblad 500cm works with off-camera flash and give you some tips on how to achieve stunning results.

The Hasselblad 500cm has a leaf shutter, which means that the shutter blades are located inside the lens. This allows it to sync you to 1/ 500th of a second, unlike modern cameras that have a focal plane shutter and a maximum sync speed of around 1/200th of a second. This means that you can use off-camera flash in bright daylight and still control the ambient light with your shutter speed.
