Canon New F1 High Speed Motor Drive Camera

Designed specifically for press photographers that covered the 1984 L.A. Olympic Games as Canon was the official Sponsor. This camera is equipped with all the sophisticated functions of the standard Canon New F-1 body chassis plus a new power film driving function. The addition of the ultra-rapid film driving function gives the new camera a shooting speed of 14 frames-per-second, which makes it the fastest camera with sequential shooting speed in the world in 35mm photography. Moreover, the High Speed Motor Drive Camera is guaranteed to be reliable under all conditions. It is thus a perfect camera for action-oriented professional photography. This camera was not produced in high quantity as it was a special application camera model (some said probably only a hundred of this have been made).

Actually, along with this High Speed Motor Drive camera, Canon also introduced a limited edition of a standard version of the Canon New F1 as L.A. Olympic Model with a companion AE Finder for camera enthusiasts, it does not have a high speed motor drive nor other accessories.

Technical Highlights:-

1. Fastest Sequential Shooting Speed in the World. 4 shooting speeds are possible, from single-frame to the maximum speed of 14 fps. The desired speed is selected by moving the mode selector.
2. Built-in High Performance Exposure Meter. For the first time in a 35 mm SLR camera of this type, the high performance exposure meter newly designed for this camera is built-in. The photographer is thus able to catch the subject at the height of the action.
3. Blackoutless Pellicle Mirror. Most SLR cameras have a fully reflecting mirror, but this camera uses an ultra-thin pellicie mirror. The pellicle mirror is a semi conductive mirror which lets 40% of the light pass through to the film, and directs the remaining 60% to the viewfinder. This type of mirror allows the photographer to see the subject the whole time the picture is being taken.
4. Electromagnetic-Controlled Horizontal Travel Blade Shutter. The shutter of the High Speed Motor Drive Camera has five blades per curtain, all composed of titanium. It is the first of its kind in the world and its performance is guaranteed, even in low temperatures. This camera's extremely fast shooting speed of 14 frames-per second is made possible by its revolutionary shutter design.
5. Interchangeable Focusing Screens. The metering sensitivity pattern can be changed by replacing the focusing screen. Three types of metering are available: selective area, center-weighted average, and spot.
6. Other Features. Other special features include: Quick, smooth film loading, automatic stop, exposure compensation, and a detachable power source.
