    Hi everyone, I need some infos.

    I've got a Hasselblad 503 CX equipped with the Planar 80 2.8. At the moment, I'm planning a reportage with this camera. The point is... focusing through the viewfinder is driving me insane.

    How can I avoid this ? I mean... Do you thing I need a metering prism ?

    If so, which one ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Question is how much do you want to spend and is metering important? The ultimate is probably the spendy PME45, but for film cameras the PM90 or PME 90 is a very nice unit. The PM5 is fairly light weight and maybe in the $350 range.

    Good luck. T

    The PME45 can be picked up for a reasonable price if you are VERY lucky, through London's Aperture. Their list of current Hassy stuff is available through the link below.
