“Canon has made three different cameras called F-1. ”

Written on: 30/03/2003 by Jeff. (1 review written)

Canon has made three different cameras called F-1.

The F-1 and F-1n made from 1971-76 and 1976-81 are almost identical. Complete manual control (shutter, aperture, focus, depth of field preview, mirror lockup), mechanical shutter 1-1/1000, battery used for meter only. Battery is the discontinued Mercury cell PX625.

Have to agree with the review haveing used the old F1 then the new F1 since it first came out and it has never failed to this day, a camera that if dropped down a flight of steps would no doubt still work a truely proffesional work horse, a camera built to this quality today would be out of the price range of all but a very select few, if someone owns a nice F1 it's seldom they part with them I still regard this camera the best canon ever made.

with canon going to auto focus, there is many high quailty FD lenses now on the market to use with these cameras.
<br>
<br>a 100mm 2.8 and 17mm 3.5 cost myself just under US $100.
<br>
<br>less extotics such as 135mm, 200mm, 28mm are now at give away prices.
<br>
<br>it is still very heavy gear, but the results are worth it.
