More Canon stuff!

DSC01888

Back when I had a much larger collection of Canon Olympic stuff.

I had acquired this photographer’s vest for the 1984 Summer Olympics held in Los Angeles. This vest was unused and still in its original sealed plastic bag.

I also acquired these cool pins to go with the vest.

Another one of those dream accessories that I finally got my hands on but let’s face it, very few people ever used these things outside of professional photographers.

This one was still new in its original box as delivered from the factory.

A thing of beauty and quite a bit of design went into this monster.

There’s a ton of Canon Olympic collectibles out there from simple lens caps to camera straps and bags. There are three Canon 35mm SLRs with Canon Olympic logos – 1976 Montreal, 1980 Lake Placid and 1984 Los Angeles.

Happy SUNday! – Photography by the pound!

Canon F1 with Montreal

My vintage 1978 Canon F-1. I’ve owned it since new and it’s pretty much traveled the world with me. From Japan to Australia, Hong Kong, South Korea, The Philippines, Thailand, Africa, Europe, Pakistan, Puerto Rico, The Bahamas, the US and most places in between.

4 pounds 6.2 ounces without film and batteries. That’s 1,991 grams of neck cramping weight!

Have a great day and thank goodness for my “tiny” digital cameras! – Chris
