I have a AE Finder FN on my New Canon F1, but it doesn't show the 2000 speed in the finder when in AV mode. Anyone can help? Thanks Mario

Kind of confusing ? Perhaps. The Canon F-1n (1976) was a update from the original Canonn F-1 (see: http://www.mir.com.my/rb/photography/hardwares/classics/canonf1/html/f1n.htm). The Canon New F-1 was introduced in 1981 as the second generation professional SLR with the "F-1" designation). Although both share the same model name but most system accessories are NOT compatible with one another (EXCEPT in the case of FD(n) lenses - both systems can be used - only differed by the process of lense mounting/romoval). Both series are classic !

Could someone please give me a novice some insite into the the differences in the meter sensitivity areas of the various focusing screens (explain in laymans terms what i can expect the differences to be in average metering vs partial metering vs spot metering) the main use of my f-1n is to shoot sports photos with 400 f2.8 and 300 f2.8 and 135 f2 lens at events trying to avoid using flash. Fuji 800 or 1600 pushed to 3200 when needed to catch enough light to freeze motion. explanitions and advice welcome Thanks Dennis

Hello, F-1 and F-1n mechanical screens are not interchangable with F-1N electronic screens or visa~versa. You will find mechanical F-1 screens are easy to locate on ebay for less than $20 for the 2 common versions: A and E. Why are A and E so common? Because the original 1971 issue F-1 was outfitted with A and the E screen came with the 1976 issue F-1n. One a related note: The 1981 electronic issue F-1N standard finder model came wirh AE sceeen and 1981 electronic issue F-1N with AE finder came with with PE screen.

I have an old F-1 (n) and a damaged focusing screen. Do the New F-1 screens work?

Hi Grant, I have not handled the 76 Olympics issue personally but have followed several on ebay over the years. I am curious about the Montreal Logo, Is it just painted on or is it embossed into the brass too. I picked up briefly an in the box 84 LA F-1N issue and was surprised the shoulder logo was only painted on. The last Montreal I saw sell sold for $460 with the limited olympics box too. It was a solid 9 condition wise and had a 6 month function warantee too. Usually the sellers of these are out of Canada, the cameras' homemarket. Thanks, Lindy

I have a 1976 Morntreal Olympic Edition F1 1.4, as well as a 1972 black body FtB. Any idea as to what the value on these would be, obciously as collector items? I still love them both for straight manual photography. Both are in very good condition. Thankyou.
