I checked here in chicago after reading this and the
repair place i use has bought a large quantity of
parts for hasselblad. if you can't find a place to
repair or whatever, your blad give them a call, (since
they receive 1000's of emails they don't bother w/that
but they do answer the fone.)
mid state camera repair 312-939-2272
