Canon F1 lake placid 1980 Olympics details

This Canon F-1 body was developed for endurance and extreme temperatures back in 1971. The operating manual states the body was built to withstand temperatures of -30C and 60C. You can still feel this durability when holding the camera today. It feels like a tool that wants to be used. The reason for this is because it had to compete with other high end cameras made by the competitor Nikon. The F-1 was Canon’s answer to the very popular Nikon F and F2.

Furthermore there are two types of Canon F-1. This is the newer version only recognizable by the lack of self timer handle on the front of the camera. However, it does still have this feature!

Because of the durability and quality of there FD-mount lenses many of them are still on the market today. This makes it easy for analoge Canon shooters to change styles by switching lenses, all this for a very decent price. This enables the user of the Canon F-1 to be as versatile in shooting as they desire.

We recommend this body to someone who has a little bit more experience shooting film.
