I am selling my Hasselblad H-38 housing and wanted to give you guys a chance at it before I put it on Ebay.
Will consider a REASONABLE offer.

Let me know if you have any questions or want to see more photos.

Thanks!

This is the H-38 underwater housing made for Hasselblad by Peterson / Gates. It fits the Hasselblad SWC/M with a CF lens. It was also made to fit the 903 SWC but will require a different base plate which is NOT included. The housing was manufactured by Gates Underwater Products whose housings are known to be some of the finest available.

This is my personal housing and I am the original owner. I have had it down to around 140 feet and it has always worked flawlessly. It has never had any leaks of any kind. It is in extremely good condition - not perfect but close to it. I have always been meticulous in maintaining it.

The kit includes:
- the front and rear halves of the housing
- the original dome port
- view finder
- gears for aperture, shutter speed, focus
- leak detector
- adapter for shutter / film advance
- base / mounting plate for
SWC/M with a CF lens
-
Proxar 2 closeup lens
- extra o-rings

It is ready to be used with Nikonos flash cables. The dome is extremely clean

I spoke to Lee Peterson at Marine Camera Distributors (the original designer) and he said that it can be easily modified to work with several different digital backs.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Hello,

I currently have a housing for Hasselblad 500 C/M that I use with a 50mm CT* and might be interested by yours.

I have a few questions:
- what is the weight of the housing plus dome? (without camera)
- how do you manage manual focus without viewfinder? Hyperfocal? (50 mm with f/5.6 or f/8 apertures has a relative shallow DOF at close focus)

Best regards,

abies

PS: any way to contact you?

I still have this housing available.

 

Price is $2,200.00

 

 This is the H-38 underwater housing made for Hasselblad by Peterson / Gates.  It fits the Hasselblad SWC/M with a CF lens.  The housing was manufactured by Gates Underwater Products whose housings are known to be of the highest quality available. 

Only about 60 of these housings were ever made.

This is my personal housing and I am the original owner.  I have had it down to around 140 feet and it has always worked flawlessly.  It has never had any leaks of any kind.  It is in excellent condition - not perfect, but close to it.  I have always been meticulous in maintaining  it.

The kit includes:
  -  the front and rear halves of the housing
  -  the original dome port
  -  view finder
  -  gears for aperture, shutter speed, focus - for Hasselblad SWC/M with a CF lens
  -  leak detector
  -  adapter for shutter / film advance
  -  base / mounting plate for SWC/M with a CF lens
  -  Proxar 2 closeup lens
  -  extra o-rings

It is ready to be used with Nikonos flash cables.  The dome is extremely clean

I spoke to Lee Peterson at Marine Camera Distributors (the original designer) and he said that a viewing window can be easily added to the back for use with digital backs and that it is awesome with Phase One digital backs.

Let me know if you have any questions.
