There was a upgrade of the F-1 in 1976. There are some improvement (13 in total) were made to the original version, most noticeable was a faster film advancng due to its film advance winding stroke was reduced from 180 to 139 and its ready position was widened from 15 to 30. Another key issue was its film speed range to adapt to wider film types available, which has been increased from ISO 2000 to ISO 3200. The PC terminal had a fastener to prevent the PC cord from disconnection.
