ArcBody lenses - a special lens series for shift applications
To fully exploit the extensive shift facility of the Hasselblad ArcBody, its system includes a special lens series characterized by large image circles. The series consists of three lenses of 35, 45 and 75 mm focal lengths, designed and produced for Hasselblad by Rodenstock, Germany.
The lenses have virtually no colour fringing and the distortion is extemely low. All lens elements are multi-coated to provide superb image contrast and colour saturation. Used with the dedicated Centre filter the illumination is even at all shift positions. All ArcBody lenses have the same front bayonet diameter enabling use of the same Centre filter and Filter holder.The built-in leaf shutters have a speed range of 1 to 1/500 s, with flash synchronization at all shutter speeds.
The Hasselblad lens bayonet provides rapid and secure mounting and changing of lenses.
