It also solved the problem plaguing the 2000 series by using a relatively tough silk-cloth shutter curtain instead of fragile titanium foil.

Of course when it first came out, the 205TCC cost about 00....

2000 series: Hasselblad did not return to focal-plane shutters for another 20 years. The 2000FC had a titanium foil focal-plane shutter with a top-speed of 1/2000 sec.

At the same time, Hasselblad announced a new series of shutterless lenses, the F series.

The 'C' indicated the ompur in-lens leaf shutter mounted in a Zeiss lens. Studio and wedding photographers liked that you could flash synchronize at all speeds.

Unfortunately, the leaf-shutter design meant that the top shutterspeed was limited to 1/500 sec.

This was the highest-end model with metering built into the body (a first for Hasselblad).

The Hasselblad 200 series is a successful line of high-end, focal-plane, single-lens reflex (SLR) medium format cameras made by the Hasselbald Corporation of Sweden, using German-made Carl Zeiss lenses.

The 200 series (which includes the 201F, 202FA, 203FE, 205TCC, and 205FCC) and the older 2000 series are renowned for their excellent optics, compact size, and extraordinarily ridiculously high original retail price in Japan, Europe, and the United States.

Because the F (and later FE) lenses were more expensive and more limited than their C/CF/CFE counterparts, they had limited popularity and are rarer on the secondary market.

The 2000FC had the same problem of the 1600F/1000F, namely that ham-handed photographers had the unsettling problem of putting their thumbs through the fragile and expensive titanium-foil rear-shutter.
