Your new Hasselblad HC lens represents the outstanding result of over fifty years of
continuous refinements and improvements. The entire HC lens line, including all lenses,
optics and related user software, has been designed to maintain Hasselblad’s leading
global position in modern medium format imaging.
This booklet will explain some of the factors that make your purchase decision one you
will not regret. Naturally, it is the quality of the images that you take with your new lens
that will provide the final proof!
H-system lenses
Hasselblad has produced the best medium format cameras in the world for over fifty
years now. We have been able to reach and maintain this high standard thanks to the
meticulous attention to detail we apply to each and every Hasselblad product. Attention
that is focused on ensuring the highest possible quality. And when we say attention to
detail, we mean to all details, from start to finish, covering all aspects of design and
production. Just as with all previous Hasselblad products, when designing the H-system
lenses, we have utilized the knowledge we have gained over the years by working with
the world’s top lens manufacturers, such as Carl Zeiss, Fuji, Kodak, Rodenstock and
Schneider. The result is the best lens line available to photographers today.
All H-system lenses are engineered to ensure optimal performance and image quality,
whether shooting film or digital. Hasselblad closely monitors production quality to ensure
that our extremely high specifications are met. H-system lenses have very accurate
electronic shutter mechanisms that deliver sync flash at all speeds and a multi-coating
treatment that results in efficient stray light elimination. An integral focus drive motor,
instant access to manual focus without switching between manual and autofocus, and
other functions add to the list of features. In order to ensure their reliability and durability year after year, Hasselblad lenses use metal, not plastic, wherever possible. In short,
they are professional level lenses designed for professional level photographers.
In the long run, however, these are merely technical details. The true test of any lens
is image quality. To objectively define image quality demands that we carry out certain
types of measurement. This also means that when comparing lenses, regardless of
make, that we must use the same types of measurement, otherwise any comparisons
are meaningless. As the saying goes, you can’t compare apples with oranges.
So, in order to simplify matters, we use objective measurements, such as MTF curves,
for example. We still, however, must take into account certain subjective aspects, such
as the quality of the blurred or out-of-focus areas of the image – the bokeh – for example.
Subjective aspects are a matter of personal taste, but objective measurements are not.
This booklet, therefore, discusses how we at Hasselblad view these scientific measurements and the other related aspects that combine to produce the legendary Hasselblad
image quality.
The advantage of a larger sensor
When using film, there was a great quality advantage in using a larger format as it required less magnification than smaller formats to reproduce any given size image. Simply
put, film grain was enlarged less and was therefore less visible in the final image. This
advantage is still relevant for digital capture, and for exactly the same reasons. It makes
sense, then, that modern professional format lens design is based on the same requirements. It also means that the same advantages of larger format lens design remain.
To take just one example, since larger format lenses use smaller apertures to produce
the same depth of field as compared to smaller formats, you can get optimum quality
at such settings much more often. Basically, a larger format enables easier design of
extremely high quality lenses.
If you choose, however, to disregard all the practical and mechanical advantages and
aspects of Hasselblad lenses, then the proof comes down to the technical data. To
compare the technical aspects of larger format lenses with ‘35mm’ lenses demands a
common measurement system. Thankfully, such a system, Modulation Transfer Function
curves (MTF for short), does exist, but in order to be accurate, lenses must be measured
according to firmly established laws of physics that take into account the reality of a
given situation. Unfortunately, this isn’t always the way such measurements are carried
out and until there is a universal agreement regarding standards and praxis, simple MTF
comparisons can be, at best, confusing and, at worst, extremely misleading.
What is an MTF curve?
Simply put, it is a graph that shows how sharp the lens is at various points across the
image in relation to the level of detail in the subject. A simple MTF curve looks like this:
100
MTF [%]
80
60
40
20
0
0
10
20
30
Image position [mm]
Image centre
Image corner
The left side of the diagram represents the central part of the image and the right hand
side of the diagram represents the corner of the image. The higher up the diagram the
curve is, the more contrast–and thereby sharpness–can be seen. So, from this diagram
we see that the lens is very sharp near the central section of the image but drops away
as we move out towards the corners–the most common situation.
To expand on this idea, three different evaluations are made that represent three
levels of detail that could be present in any given subject. Standard practice (often
emulated digitally nowadays) has been to use sets of black and white lines that produce
patterns at specific lines per millimeter (lp/mm) measured at the image plane:
1mm
Example with
10 lp/mm
As the level of detail increases, the contrast decreases which in turn produces an apparent decrease in sharpness. So three curves now appear on the diagram, one for each
of the three patterns:
40 lp/mm
100
20 lp/mm
10 lp/mm
80
MTF [%]
1 mm

Image height [mm]

To expand the idea even further, other properties inherent in all optics are also taken
into account. It involves the actual orientation of perceived patterns in regard to the
lens and thereby final image representation. Patterns that appear to be streaming out
from the center of the image are called ‘sagittal’ and patterns that appear to be at right
angles to the center are called ‘tangential’.
Tangential pattern

Examples of tangential
and sagittal type patterns
at the corners of the
image.
Image frame
Sagittal pattern
Sagittal pattern
Normally, tangential patterns are not as sharply defined as sagittal patterns and so require a separate curve to provide a fair representation of a real world situation. As both
tangential and sagittal valuations are taken from the same lp/mm pattern sets, they are
grouped together on the diagram for easier comparative analysis.
So now we have three sets of tangential/sagittal grouped curves. A tangential orientation normally causes less resolution than sagittal, and is often represented by a dashed
line or different color on the diagram.
100
Near the center and at 40 lp/mm,
there is virtually no difference in
the sharpness of tangential and
sagittal patterns.

Half way towards the edges of the
frame there is a slight difference.

Just at this point, this lens would
produce slightly better sharpness
of tangential patterns.
Image corner
How do you read MTF diagrams?
From the final diagram above you can see how at 10 lp/mm the orientation of patterns
in the image is not too significant for good perception of sharpness whereas for finer
details at 40 lp/mm, the orientation of patterns in an image plays a larger part. You can
also see that at a specific point on the 40 lp/mm curves a tangential orientated pattern
would actually produce a slightly sharper result than sagittal patterns.
Simply put, if there was a ‘perfect’ lens, then all six curves would be high and flat and
across the graph. Being able to read and understand the basics of MTF diagrams will
help you compare different lenses and of course aid you in predicting the optimum settings for specific situations.

Comparing formats
When comparing MTF diagrams representing different formats, cautious interpretation
should be used. To make a scientifically correct comparison, test patterns (measured in
lines per millimeter) would have to be 15, 30 and 60 lp/mm for 35mm format and 10, 20
and 40 lp/mm for the H System format to compensate for the difference in magnification. You therefore cannot directly compare the MTF diagrams for 35mm format to the
diagrams from a larger format using the same test diagrams!
The smaller format needs higher magnification to produce a given
image size compared to the larger format.
If you compare H-system lenses with 35mm lenses with the above in formation in
mind, you get the following MTF diagrams. Note that they are based on actual measured
data.

In this illustration an MTF chart is laid
over an image to help demonstrate the
relationship between curves and what they
represent in practice. In this case you should
expect exceptional sharpness in the center,
as indicated by the very high position of the
curves on the chart.
Towards the edge of the frame, and at
another aperture setting, the curves are
lower down on the chart, indicating a slight
decrease in sharpness compared to the center. Nevertheless, the sharpness remains
extremely good.
It should be emphasised, though, that this
difference is only noticeable under great
magnification and in most practical situations is very difficult to perceive.

In addition, an H-system file, being at least twice as large as a 35 DSLR file, will
sample an image with finer pitch as there are many more pixels. This means that the image reaching the H sensor, which is already of a higher quality because of the lenses, is
sampled with higher resolution and so provides a far superior image quality.
Comparing lenses, therefore, can involve a number of important factors; correctly
produced and interpreted MTF diagrams being just one part.
Conclusion
As mentioned before, there are subjective considerations to add the final equation.
Personal taste is impossible to quantify (how sharp should a portrait lens be?) so it’s also
down to each photographer to base their valuations on a balanced mix of scientifically correct data, practicalities that match specific requirements and aesthetic considerations.
Browse through this folder and you will certainly find another lens that would prove
very useful. Your Hasselblad dealer will be glad to demonstrate it for you and perhaps
arrange a test run. They are all extremely good; so expect tremendous results!
We wish you happy shooting with your new Hasselblad H lens!

General
Information
 Rapid and accurate automatic focusing capability
 Central electronic shutter
 Instant manual focus override with natural friction
 Instant automatic-focus return capability
 Non-rotation of filter or accessory when focusing
 Non-rotation of lens barrel in automatic focusing mode
 Flash sync at shutter speeds from 32s to 1/800s
 Reversed lens shade serves as transportation protection
 Automatic detection of extension rings and converters
All H-system lenses have been specially formulated for the H system to produce the extremely high performance expected from Hasselblad to meet the demands from conventional and digital photography alike. In addition to extreme sharpness, the design also
incorporates a soft, pleasant looking boké (the visual quality of the out-of-focus areas
of the image). All lenses feature an electronically controlled central shutter designed to
extremely fine tolerances for supreme accuracy that also provides flash synchronization
with all speeds from 256s to 1/800s. All lenses have a very rapid automatic focus capability with instant manual override. To ensure reliable and fast autofocus in low contrast
and low light conditions, a focusing-assist light (on the grip) is automatically activated.
Aperture and shutter control is set via the control wheels on the camera grip.
As a general rule, lens shades should always be fitted to achieve optimum performance. Protective filters (UV/Sky) should also be considered at least when working
outdoors in harsh conditions.

Depress the lens release button and
keep it depressed while rotating the lens
counter-clockwise until it stops and lift it
out. Replace protective caps on the lens
immediately and on the camera body if
necessary.
If you try to rotate the lens before you
press the lens release button, it might
lock. In this case, rotate the lens clockwise
a little first and then re-attempt removal
with the correct procedure: button first,
then lens.

Front lens cap
4
Front lens caps are released for removal
and attachment by inserting a thumb and
index finger into the recesses and pinching
in the direction of the arrows.
Filters
5
Filters have a screw thread fitting (67/
77/95 mm, according to lens) and are
screwed clockwise into place. As there is
no rotation of the front section of the lens
when focus is changed, filters do not rotate
either. This is particularly useful when using polarizing or graduated filters where the
orientation is normally critical.
Lens shades
5, 6
All lenses are supplied with lens shades
that additionally provide extra protection
for transport and storage when mounted
in reverse. Lens shades have a bayonet
fitting and are turned clockwise into place
after ensuring the index on the lens shade
aligns with the index on the front of the
lens. When mounted in reverse, they are
attached by matching the indexes and turning counter-clockwise.
6
Shutter and aperture control
Both the shutter and aperture are electronically controlled and are adjusted by
the control wheels on the grip. There are no
separate manual setting rings on the lenses
or camera body. The settings−manual, automatic or programmed−are displayed both on
the grip LCD and in the viewfinder LCD.
7
Depth-of-field calculation
7
There are two distance scales (in feet and
metres) visible through the focus distance
window on the upper part of the lens barrel. There is also a central lens index mark
and a depth-of-field scale. The focusing
distance is read off the chosen scale from
the central lens index.
Depth-of-field can be calculated as follows:
1. Focus the lens as required.
2. Make an exposure reading (auto or
manual) and note the aperture setting.
3. Find the markings on either side of the
central index that correspond to the
chosen aperture.
4. From these two markings, read off on
the required lens distance scale the
two corresponding distances.
5. The depth-of-field (at that particular
aperture and focus setting) will be
the area included between these two
distances.
In the example given here, the focusing
distance is set at nearly 3 metres. At an
aperture of f/22, the depth-of-field would
therefore extend from just over 2 m to approximately 4.5 m.
8
Stop down / depth-of-field
8
A visual depth-of-field preview can be made
by depressing the STOP DOWN button
(when at the default setting) while viewing
the image on the viewfinder screen.
9
Infrared focus settings
9
As infrared rays form an image at a different plane to that formed by visible light,
the normal focus settings do not apply.
Proceed as follows in manual focus mode:
1. Focus the lens in the conventional
manner until satisfied.
2. Note the distance setting against the
central lens index.
3. Re-align this distance setting against
the infrared mark (coloured red) instead of the central lens index.
Alternatively if you have already calculated
the required distance, you can make a
manual distance setting by using the
distance scales together with the infrared
mark instead of the central lens index.
Focus in general
There are three focus modes: Automatic,
Manual and True Focus, all set on the camera grip. It is possible to combine some
of these modes to suit your preferred way
of working. Please see the H4D camera
manual for a full explanation.
Focus assist 10, 11, 12
As well as the conventional view on the
focusing screen to ensure a sharp image,
H cameras also feature LED focus assist
capability appearing as two arrowheads to
the right of the viewfinder display (except
for lenses with a maximum aperture of
f/6.7 or smaller). The arrowheads provide
confirmation of a precision focus setting
and are a useful aid when making a setting
with eyesight alone.
10
Lens focus setting too far beyond the distance of the subject
framed by the central section in
the viewfinder
11
Focus setting too close for the distance of the subject framed by the
central section in the viewfinder
12
Focus setting correct
13
Manual focus setting
When the left arrowhead alone appears it
means the focus setting is too far beyond
the chosen distance (the area framed within the central zone in the viewfinder) and
when the right arrowhead alone appears
it means the focus setting is too close.
Focus is correct when both arrowheads
appear together. If the focus cannot be
established, then both arrowheads flash.
Automatic focus setting
Focus is correct when both arrowheads are
visible together. Focus is incorrect if only
one arrowhead is visible. If the focus cannot be established, then both arrowheads
flash.
True Focus
13
All H4D camera models include the True
Focus feature that helps in improving focus
accuracy in certain situations; fashion
photography in particular. Please see the
H4D User Manual for full explanation and

When using the lens shade, it becomes natural to place
the lens/camera combination down on a surface in the
correct manner, that is, in a horizontal orientation. Similarly, the lens on its own can placed vertically but still
in a safe orientation as in illustration (A). This virtually
avoids all risk of damage.
However, placing the lens or lens/camera combination
down in a vertical orientation on a surface as in illustration (B) − that is, resting on the front of the lens −
should be avoided at all times.

ATTACHING AND REMOVING THE CONVERTER
1/1
The converter is attached and removed in the same manner as a lens. It can be attached either to the lens first or
directly to the camera, whichever is preferred. It can also be used in combination with extension tubes,
though
it
should
www.hasselblad.com
be mounted between the camera body and extension tube or combination of tubes.
FOCUSING
The H1.7x Converter does not change the readings from the distance scale on the lens, so the near and far limits of
the focusing scale still apply. However, the depth-of-field scale no longer applies and should be disregarded. Depth-offield should be checked on the focusing screen using the depth-of-field button.
LIGHT METERING
Since the H1.7x Converter increases the focal length it also, according to the geometrical laws of optics, decreases
the aperture of the total optical lens/converter system. The TTL metering system takes this into account automatically
general purposes. However, for critical applications alternative exposure settings should be made.

many hasselblad photographers. designed for
the hCd28mm, hC35mm, hC50mm, hC80mm
and the hC100mm lenses it, in effect, adds five

HC80 + HTS 1.5 at f/11, 10 degrees tilt
Use Of shIfT
for perfect parallel vertical lines in
the image, the camera needs to be
parallel to the subject. Tilting the
whole camera would produce converging parallel lines. But by shifting
the lens parallel to the image plane,
you can raise or lower the view without tilting the camera. If the subject
is a building as in this example, the
camera should be placed level.
Camera positioned level. The roof of the building is outside the area
projected onto the sensor (HC28 + HTS).
The complete camera tilted upwards to include the top of the
building results in converging vertical lines in the image.
The camera positioned level again with an upward lens shift of
9 mm applied results in parallel verticals.
www.hasselblad.com
Use Of TILT
By tilting the lens in relation to the image plane, you can effectively tilt the plane of sharpness in the subject. depending on
your idea of the final image you can either use tilt to enlarge the
apparent depth of field or reduce it.
The full image
HCD28 + HTS 1.5 at f/11
No lens tilt produces some lack of sharpness in the foreground and background, partly due to insufficient depth of
field.
Lens tilted a few degrees to the right produces an image with perfect sharpness from the foreground to the background.
Lens tilted a few degrees to the left produces an image with an apparent shallow depth of field.
sTITChInG
The hTs 1.5 lends itself extremely well to automatic stitching
to create a panoramic image in super high quality. With most
subjects it will be impossible to detect any dividing line between
the separate images. The main reasons for this are:
• Thelensisshiftedsidewaysandthereforedoesnotproduce
any distortion of the subject
• TheDAClenscorrectionfordistortionandvignettingensures
perfect images that can easily be stitched together
The resulting image can be created in any high-end stitching
software, e.g. the “photomerge” function in adobe photoshop
Cs3 or later.
In the case of adobe photoshop Cs3, use the following procedure:
• openthethreeimages
• Gotomenu:“File-Automate-Photomerge”
• Clickon“addopenfiles”andcheck“interactivelayout”
• ClickOK
• In the preview that appears you can choose to modify the
layout, but in most cases there will be no need for any manual
interaction.
• Finally click OK and the final stiched image will be processed.
If the stitch is not perfect, you can modify the layer masks for
each layer.

place the camera on a tripod and aim it at a subject. Then set
the hTs 1.5 in the normal position with no tilt or shift. rotate
the hTs 1.5 with the controls facing up to allow for sideways
shift. Make the first exposure in the mid position. shift to both
end positions and make an exposure in each position. develop
the three images with daC turned on. Import the images into the
stitching software and follow the instructions.

Even at 100% it is almost impossible to see any stitch lines.
