Hasselblad has been synonymous with photography since its earliest days. But it was Victor Hasselblad's invention of first the 1000 and then the 500 series in the 1950's that turned a camera into an icon. Here in a small, robust, rectangular box was an unrivalled combination of camera reliability and image quality. Such was the lead that it had over its competitors it became the choice for NASA's space programme. Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin's shots of Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon, were taken with a Hasselblad 500EL/70.

The same relentless pursuit of excellence motivates Hasselblad in the digital age. Today they are the authors of the world's most advanced medium format digital system and the owners of a truly global brand. Photographers who want to excel in their craft can now get their hands on a Hasselblad in 75 countries.

Photovalue & 3XM

Since 1981, Photovalue has been providing professional photographers in the UK and Ireland with high quality slip in photo folders and strut mounts. We manufacture over 12 million mounts every year at our manufacturing plant in Dublin, Ireland.

We are committed and dedicated to providing our customers with superior quality products and an unrivalled level of service, along with the promise of better value. This is the foundation upon which the business was originally founded.

www.photovalue.com


3XM is the brainchild of Ronan Ryle, Business Development Director of Photovalue Ltd. in Dublin, Ireland. He wanted to help photographers 'make more money' from their 'disc only' or 'shoot and burn' weddings.

Our name was born out of this initial idea with the three letters 'M' from the phrase staying put (3 x M). Since then, 3XM has evolved quite dramatically to what it is today where we strive to deliver on 'Your Selling Made Simple' for modern photographers. We will continue to adapt and grow based on feedback from the photography community.
