The Hasselblad 500 C/M would be my recommendation. It’s an easy camera to live and grow with in that you can adapt it to your shooting style and she can adapt it to hers. There are a plethora of different focusing screens, finders, lenses and other accessories that allow you to customize you shooting experience. I own three Rolleiflex twin lens cameras and I love them because they work for me. I prefer the waist-level finder and “standard” 80mm field of view. I like that the Rolleiflex is rugged and unique looking… But if you want versatility, reliability and superb quality, get a Hassleblad :-)
