After Hasselblad introduced the original 1600 F in 1948, it became evident that the focal-plane shutter was the weak link in the design. With the 1000 F introduced in 1952, Hasselblad redesigned the shutter, with a top speed of 1/1000 sec. rather than the (perhaps over-ambitious) 1/1600 sec. of the original model. Where the standard lens of the 1600 F had been a Kodak Ektar, the 1000 F was also sold with a 80mm f/2.8 Tessar from Carl Zeiss, the beginning of a long association between the two firms. The original lens series also offered 135mm f/3.5 or 250mm f/5.6 Zeiss Sonnars.

This model was succeeded by the Hasselblad 500 C introduced in 1957—launching the leaf-shutter models which made Hasselblad the workhorse of professional photographers for decades to come. Hasselblad returned to making focal-plane shutter cameras with the Hasselblad 2000FC in 1977.
