Hi, Folks. I could use some help. I have a fairly extensive FD system to dispose of to allow me to move into a new digital system. I am not trying to sell it here but could use some advice on establishing a value and what might be the best way to dispose of it. I live in a small community and local dealers have no interest in a film system as a trade-in. The following is a list of what I have. Please help. I live in Ontario, Canada. Camera Bodies F1-N Camera Body w/ Power Winder As new T-90 Camera Body As new
Lenses Accessories Flash 300 TL (2 available) + cables etc. Excellent + MORE

Found your site quite by accident. Foolishly I thought I was the only one to still love this camera as I do. I have two, both been through the wars pretty much the same as Dennis's - also dropped one right on the AE head, took the entire thing apart, tappped out the massive dent (brass body, what can I say), replace the little white plastic "window" on the front using a piece cut from a plastic millk bottle! And they're both going strong. A camera to beat all cameras indeed.

Dennis, I hope to be shooting film for a long time. The best thing about digital is that it is making the film cameras cheaper. There is just something irreplaceable about having the negative and print when you are done shooting. I have seen too many computers crash and there is nothing like going to the file and sifting through a stack of prints. I even still shoot polaroids W/a back and my F-1's.I agree with you on the toughness of the F-1, they are as solid as they come. I will carry one with me all winter and it never misses a beat, even in sub-zero temps. Long live the F-1. Smitty.

Mark, doing a quick scan of eBay ... I see that most Canon F-1N's are starting out at $250.00 on auction. The AE Finder will increase that price by $50.00 The AE Winder FN alone is worth at least $75.00

Testimony of the F-1N's durability: My F-1N is was purchased used in 1990. Over the years this camera has encountered dirt, rocks, and rain. I have dropped this camera many times as shown by the many dents in the body. I have even dropped the camera right on the AE head (there is a dent to show this). I have left this camera out in the rain ... once, and I continued to use it (after removing the battery) in mechanical shutter mode. All my lenses have dents ... most of the built in hoods stick a little because of this when attempting to extend them. This camera will never die.

Hi everyone! I am a long-time Canon user and life-long slide film shooter. My question: A member of a msg. bd. is selling a F-1N and AE winder for $325. Besides some brassing, it looks to be in great shape. Is that a good price? Thanks.

Smitty, nice to hear you are still shooting film. Thanks for the comment on the website. I used to manage a photo store and my wife managed the lab ... so I know about the printing but I am not that familiar with the exact numbers (ie what number represents what filter ... C Y M).

fotosmith, the letters (or numbers) printed on the back are produced from the photofinishing printing machine. These represent the filter levels that were applied to that print. "N"'s represent normal printing without filter change ... otherwise a +/- number will appear. Note: if you have many prints that do not look good and they have all "N"'s on the back ... tells me that the person that printed those pictures did not care to attempt colour correction (or you told them specifically not to).
