The Hasselblad SWC is an all-manual mechanical camera with a permanently attached super wide-angle lens and a removable viewfinder. It has a 91º angle of view roughly similar to a 21mm lens on a 35mm camera.
The 38mm f/4.5 Biogon lens is exceptional for its complete lack of distortion, lack of mechanical vignetting and high performance even wide-open. These three factors have made it a favorite of aerial and satellite mapping and surveillance, where it can be used wide-open for the shortest exposures. Its lack of distortion is needed for accurate mapping and photogrammetry.
