A quick question. Is there an adapter to mount and EF mount to the Canon F-1 FD mount?

Just like to try to add a reviving breath to the F1-n - as a very latecomer! For most of my working life, I used Pentaxes, got wooed to chop them in for an early Canon EOS digital, lost a fortune on a caseful of good glass including three Px A-star lenses,two LX bodies, drives etc and then found that the performance from the digital camera and new AF lenses to go with it were far from what I'd hoped for. So, I decided to go back old-fashioned and have collected a load of old heavy metal (Blad, Leica, Rollei, many Spotties+LX-MX, RB67 and so on). I came across an F1n in mint condition, cheap as chips, and bagged some lenses ditto. Last December, took it with me on a shoot in France, banged off some film . . . and was truly awed. Image quality (400 ASA film) after scanning was as sharp and crisp as I can get - lenses are out-resolving the 16mp sensor on the digital. Colour range and subtleties of film are way beyond dig however you tweak settings. We've all been conned rotten by the Emperor's New Cameras. I'm now a F1-ing nut!

I recently found a Canon servo EE finder that looks to be in good condition, but I have no way to test it; is there somewhere in the Los Angeles area that I could take it to be tested?

Thanks for any help

For sale to a good home: F1n body, motor drive FN and Hi-Speed MD FD with nicad pack and charger, FD lenses (17mm all the way up to 800mm mirror including 300 f2.8L and f4, plus 85mm f1.2L), finders (AE and Speed Finder) and accessories for collectors/active photographers. I have an extra focusing screen for the F1n as well as a T-90 with matching 300 series flash - all excellent condition.

Serious inquiries only please. Will consider trades for other Canon gear (but not for shares of your rich uncle's diamond mine in Kenya, thanks anyway).


PS: great to see such a large group of happy Canon F1 users!

I just got one of my dream cameras, a 1980 Lake Placid F1n, the camera is in incredible condition except, the EE slot door is broken and was covered with a piece of electric tape. If anyone has a parts camera or the door, I would like to buy them so I can return my F1 to it's original condition.

I am looking for the connecting cord that connects the MF grip to the MF motor drive when using the film chamber 250 on the Canon F-1. Please contact me via email if you have one for sale.
