About this item

The ideal, versatile camera for the professional or amateur location photographer who wants excellent exposures in the easiest way possible. The 203FE's aperture priority, selective metering system provides perfect exposures automatically - even with CFi/CFE/CF lenses. And automatic is about as easy as it comes.

The 203FE is a camera designed for that special breed of professional who routinely works with unpredictable available light, ever-changing shooting conditions, and fast-moving or elusive subjects: the location specialist. From its compact size and low weight to its precise metering, auto exposure, and flash metering systems, to its convenient motor-driven auto-bracketing capability and super-fast shutter speeds - every feature of the 203FE is designed to make your location portrait, wedding, industrial, wild-life/landscape, documentary, or sports assignments as easy and productive as possible. And since the whole point of using medium format on location is to get much larger, much higher quality images, you have access to the razor-sharp definition and rich color saturation produced by Hasselblad's world-renowned lenses.
