I realize my question is about the New Canon F1, not the original F1 but I see that other people have discussed the newer camera here and I hope someone can help me.

I have a New Canon F1 that I have had since new but, being almost exclusively a large format photographer, I rarely use it or my T90. About ten years ago, I noticed that my Hi-Power NiCd Battery Pack FN was weak so I took it to International Camera in Chicago to have it re-celled. Unfortunately, I think they goofed because, after getting it back, it would only fire the camera at about 2-3 frames per second and the charger light would never go off as it should when the pack is fully charged. I picked up a Battery Pack FN about that time so I would always be able to use the motordrive even if I couldn't get my NiCd pack re-celled.

Anyway, I have just learned that Batteries Plus can probably re-cell my Hi-Powered NiCd pack. I'm going to take it to them but I want to make sure that the right batteries are used this time. I'm concerned that if they remove the batteries that International Camera put in the pack and replace them with the same type of battery, I will be right back where I started from. Apparently, the Hi-Power pack uses more powerful batteries because it will run more rolls of film and will also function at colder temperatures. So I would like to be able to tell Batteries Plus what the specs are for the proper batteries that should be installed in the pack. Does anyone know that the difference is between the NiCd Battery Pack FN batteries and those used in the Hi-Powered NiCd Battery Pack FN? Or, in other words, what type of batteries should I tell Batteries Pluse must be installed to get the pack up to proper specs.

I am looking for guidance (actually the manual) for the Canon Bulk 250 loader I recently purchased. The link to it on the F1 page of MIR web site has broken or is no longer available - do not want to use the loader/250 bulk back I have just want to know how it was to be used - must it be used in a film bag? since there is no cover for the reels that hold the bulk film and the sprockets are exposed thank you very much in advance -

I observe the exact same thing. Is it normal or is it really a calibration issue? Can somebody shed some light on this?
Thanks.

I've just bought an F-1N to replace my A-1. The camera is in good condition and works properly. Only, there is a slight decalibration in the aperture-indication in the FN-finder. There seems to be a half stop diffence between the aperture setting indicated in the viewfinder and the real aperture on the lens. This occurs with every lens I've tried. Is anybody familiar with this ?

Kind regards.

I have had my old F-1 (I have had since 1974) in storage for several years. I got it out yesterday and found that my aperture signal coupling lever was not working about 90% of the time. After moving it up and down with my finger many, many times it worked a little better. I assume that there is a return spring on the lever that is not working properly. Is there anything else I can do to get it to return better.

Thanks
