Selling Leaf Valeo-22 Wi digital back. Camera Hasselblad SWC is not included.

Valeo-22 is old style back and still delivers exceptionally clean images. It has lowest standard ISO among digital backs which is ISO 25.
Due to this fact, it requires tripod for serious work or use on wide angle camera in handheld occasionally.
Good for landscape with extreme details and superb dynamic range, but not suitable for street or fashion photo :- )

Sensor is very clean and the back is working flawlessly.

This back is configured for Hasselblad ELX and SWC now, so it will work only for them.
If you intend to use 500C or ELD, need to change setting through S/W LeafCapture V8.4 which is only working on old Mac.
So if you don’t have LeafCapture 8.4, please assume the back is working only for Hasselblad SWC and ELX.

Included item
– Leaf Valeo-22 digital back (36 X 48mm, twice of full frame sensor, 22Mb)
– 30G portable disk pack (outside inscribed as 10G, but disk drive upgraded to 30G)
– 2 set of battery (2ea for each set, total 4ea)
– Battery charger
– Sync cable (lens to back)
– 1394 firewire (disk to back)
– Additional 3m long firewire cable (you can separate portable pack to install the back to tripod)
– HP IPAQ (WiView program installed)
– Charger for IPAQ

NOT included
– Hasselblad SWC camera
– Sensor cover**

* IPAQ handheld display device is included, thus you can review photo, histogram after shooting.
But be aware this is old style digital back. Display technology is not the same as modern stuff.
WiView is mostly useful for Histogram check, do not expect Pixel pipping enlarge view :- )

* IPAG battery is weak or medium at best, so need replacement battery if use in the field. (battery is plenty & cheap at Ebay)
My recommendation is not bothering about WiView, since it is old technology anyway
Leaf Valeo-22 is working exactly the same as Film back without WiView. Use exposure meter and develop the file when you return home. LightRoom is working fine.

** Sensor cover is not included
I attached this back to SWC couple of years ago and stayed as so until now. I can not find the back cover any longer, so assume it lost.
I will make special care to protect the sensor during transportation
