The Hasselblad V series is one of the most ergonomically satisfying cameras ever designed for medium format. They are lightweight, have interchangeable film backs, and a range of lenses that are very sharp even with the aperture wide open. This means that you can be selective about what you choose to have in focus, and what you can abandon to bokeh.



The mood or atmosphere of a photograph is as much down to relative contrast between the centre and the outside edges of the image as it is to focus control. With a pinhole camera the reduction in light entering the camera at extreme angles means that the border areas of the image are darker than the centre. Depth of field is continuous and so everything is slightly in focus in equal measure except where long exposures introduce motion blur.
