Hasselblad Xpan with a 35mm F2.8 PC Nikkor – A Users’ Review. Cal Stewart

To cut to the chase, it is possible to shoot the Hasselblad Xpan with a 35mm f2.8 PC Nikkor, which will give you a wider field of view than with the standard 45mm lens. It’s a clunky set-up with a couple of issues, however it offers a lot of potential for great imagery. This review will discuss the advantages and drawbacks this set-up entails, my experience with it, and I’ll of course share some images that I have made using it.

Hasselblad X-Pan Review – Fulfilling a Vision – By Cal Stewart

It is probably easiest if I just come out and say it like this: The XPAN will forever hold a special place in my heart.

It’s been two years since I’ve owned it, and roughly 200 or so rolls later, I don’t have any plans to sell it. I have made some of my favourite images with it and have enjoyed shooting it tremendously. I will go into more details obviously, but if you wanted the short version, there it is. You can zone out and just look at the photos now if you wish.
