Hello all,

I am looking for an AE Finder for my new f1. Eye level finders and speed finders are easy to pick up but I can't find an ae finder on it's own. If anyone has one that they wish to part with please contact me.

After a couple of years of using digital cameras for web and desktop publishing, I recently used my F1 ( 1980 Lake Placid edition with F Winder) and fell in love with it again. A real camera... works beautifully of course... had the film processed on CD so I have the best of both world. digital convenienence and real camera quality. These Sonys digitals aren't going to see much use now on...

Before that, I was tempted to get one of the new (and expensive )digitals, but instead I just ordered a New F1 ( 1984 olympics edition ) with AE finder and AE Motor FN from KEH ( I also found that site here...).

I also have an AE1 ( graduation present in 76 )...

A big huge thank you to Leefoo for this wonderful site. Very Very well done, and the amount of information is just unbelievable ! Sites like this help keep those great cameras alive. THANK YOU !

I can't wait to receive that New F1, should come in handy 2 weeks from now at the US GP @ Indy...

Eduardo, I would skip finding the charger since the rechargable batteries are dying due to age. Personally, I gave up on the Ni-cd Pack FN a couple years ago. I got the F-1N double AA battery powerpack, which also has the 2 release buttons, just like your Ni-cd version. I recently sold my charger 120v charger on ebay for $35. There is also a 220v version.

Can anyone recommend a reliable Canon service center in Sydney/Australia? My precious F1-N's need a cleanup/lubrication job.

I just bought a Mint, New In The Box, F-1N with eyelevel finder. The protective plastic card is still on the film pressure plate. The F-1N Instructions~manual , Lenses brochure , Matching # & unfilled out Warantee Card , Repair Locations list , and sealed premuim strap in the bag. Nice to see this old classic can still be found in New~In~The~Box~condition. Build code dates it to October 1989. Shutter speeds are right on. This is an awsome 13 year old time capsule. Not for sale... Just thought I'd share. Lindy

How can one differentiate between a Canon F-1 and a Canon new F-1 camera?
