Hey, I had a Canon F1N LA 1984 SLR for many years now and it still works perfectly well, and as soon as you hold it you can feel the solid build. Honestly if you do not have one of these cameras you should find someone who has and just ask to get a feel of it. You will be hooked. The build is much stronger then the modern digital SLR's but they are well have now taken over. 9I have one as well now). I can put my pics onto the ipod and then create a slidshow on the TV with music. I highly reccommend getting one good for photographers. Cost may put people off but you can get it for free just follow the link above. It really does work thats how i got my Ipod. Anyway gone off track here, the Canon even has titanum shutter blades, with titanium being the strongest metal around. Can hadel wide range of temps from -30 degrees to around +90 degrees (i think). Definatly if you going into the desert or any cold or hot country it would be better to take a good old manual SLR like the F1 then a digital. My friend had a digital that got damaged in the Dubai desert because of the sand, the F1 was fine!!

Sadly the film makers have taken a beating thow with Kodak (in the UK) cutting down its workforce in film production so the digital era has taken its toll on some firms. Although i'm sure there will always be good quality films avaible. But we have to face it that the digital camera is now the future and film SLR will probabily end up like the TLR or the Plate film. Anyway what are your views on the digital SLR's and their compatability with ipods, pda and laptops against the F1?

I am interested in selling my trusty F-1n with AE Motor Drive, FN and battery pack. I have the original instruction manuals for both the camera and the drive. Also included are extra focusing screen, strap, and I’ll even throw in a 50mm 1.2 lens if you are interested. The camera is well-used, but in good condition. There is some brassing, but the equipment has been well maintained. It was my “second camera” for the last twenty years. (for sentimental reasons, I’m keeping my even more well used “first camera”). The meter and shutter are in good working order. I checked them out in May. Please e-mail me at if you are interested, and I can send photos of the equipment.

Hi F1 fans, this is just to let you know that I got the match-needle display problem solved. Match-needle display was not visible on right side in the finder, because something blocked the light coming from the small milky window on top of the body next to the rewind knob. I have a good repair company in my home town Dortmund, Germany. I used them already for some fixes on lenses and A-1 body. This little something has been removed and now I see the match-needle clearly. Repair cost was about 100 US$, including cleaning, new foam at the hinge and test. Thanks to all who contributed to my search regarding this matter and good luck and good light for your F1 equipment ! Andreas

Hi, I have a Canon F1 Motor drive unit in mint condition including the external battery compartment to fit on the belt. I'm looking for the battery compartment (D) that slides on the clip underneath the drive. If anyone can supply this item then I will be very interested. Many thanks Rich

A couple of us here are trying to work out some of the details in the production of the Canon 35mm f2.8 Tilt & Shift lens and would appreciate any serial numbers and build codes you might be able to provide us. You can post them here or email them direct to me. If your worried about giving out your serial numbers just us X's for the last number or if your really paranoid the last two! The serial number is found on the under side of the aperture ring (look from the rear) The build code (which may be rubbed off) is in black ink stamped on the rear of the mounting ring. THANKS for any help you can provide. Mark W.
