Hasselblad Lunar Surface SWC
Facing the moon
In the Spring of 1967, a strong partnership led NASA and Hasselblad to build the camera, that would be used to take photographs on the Moon.
The result was a SWC equipped with a big frame finder, stronger shutter and larger release button, a big film winder, a magazine catch and a lightweight magazine altered to take 200 pictures on 70 mm perforated film.
Unfortunately, this lunar SWC was abandoned: NASA preferred to choose, following astronauts advices, a Hasselblad 500 EL, easier to use on the surface of the Moon because of space suits limiting astronauts movements. Only around 25 SWC Lunar Surface have been made.
The offered camera is in almost mint condition and in good working order, with Biogon 4.5/38mm no.4241459, special ultra-light 70mm magazine Lunar Mission no. UV400523 (NASA number P/N SEB 33100082-S/N 889) - rare opportunity to buy a piece of space history!
