It was only in 2016 that they introduced the Hasselblad X1D-50c, allowing medium format photography to be more compact. Hasselblad is a tour-de-force in the camera world, so it’s no wonder that photographers and camera collectors are constantly looking for a Hasselblad camera repair in Sydney.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes. Our Hasselblad repairs service includes lens repairs, maintenance, and replacements.
  • Replace the film with a different type. Sometimes, it’s the film that’s faulty, not the camera.
  • If the light leak always appears in the same spot or replacing the film doesn’t solve the issue, it’s likely there’s a problem with the dark side seal or a poorly fitted back. To determine which it is, point a flashlight at the back, sides, bottom, and top of the camera in a dark room and look through the lens to find where the light seeps through. If it’s the seal, you can fix the issue by plugging the leak with camera foam or black velvet.
  • If the issue is a poorly fitted back, however, we recommend taking your camera to a Hasselblad repair and service centre or licensed repair shop.
As we’ve found over many years working in the industry, Hasselblad repair centres (and camera repair centres in general) often don’t have experienced repair staff and/or don’t have the time for extensive repairs. Seeking a second opinion from a repair shop is a good idea, and we’d be happy to provide one.
It depends on the damage and the Hasselblad model. But generally, we’d say that considering some Hasselblad models cost upwards of $3,000, Hasselblad repairs will generally be cheaper.
While there are no Hasselblad camera repair and service centres in Sydney, there are many licensed repair shops to choose from. We, for example, have repaired a variety of Hasselblad film and digital cameras and can source replacement parts for your convenience.
Generally, yes. On the off chance the damage is too severe for us to fix, we can replace the shutter for you.
