Canon Booster T Finder

A classic Canon accessory.
Here is a very nice early version of this important accessory from Canon for the original Canon F-1.

Canon Booster T Finder for the Canon F-1
– Mint in Box w/ Leather Case,
Connecting Cord, New Battery, Prism Cover
– Fully Tested – 1 Owner

The Booster T Finder, interchangeable with the
F-1 pentagonal prism section reads precise
exposures with its electronic timer under
extremely dim lighting conditions. It is
effective for photomicrography, macro-
photography, and when shooting indoors
or night scenes where timed exposures
are necessary.

It will complete as pictured. The leather case
is in near-perfect condition as is the finder
itself. The Canon connecting cord 6V 2B is
also in excellent condition and is the correct
cord for the finder. The finder is powered
by an easy-to-find A544 6V alkaline battery
which I’ve included.

This finder was a key part of my Canon F-1 collection
that I’m now downsizing.

The case is in exceptionally nice condition.
Mint condition.
The battery test indicates all is up and running.
The Booster T Finder replaces the eye-level pentaprism finder on the Canon F-1.
Shown here with the standard eye-level finder removed from the original F-1.

If you’re interested in adding this interesting F-1 accessory to your own Canon collection then pop on over to my online shop at http://www.ccstudio2380.com where I’m having a nice sale on everything at 10% off for a limited time. Thanks for stopping by, Chris

A gem from Canon – 1972

The Canon F-1 was released in 1971 and represented Canon’s first professional level 35mm single-lens reflex camera. This beautiful set is from 1972 and features a Canon FD 50mm f1.4 lens.

Complete kit including the correct first edition instruction booklet.
Chrome nose Canon lenses are my favorite.
Early models do not have the film reminder slot on the rear of the film door. Early serial numbers in the 1xxxxx range are your assurances that it’s an early model.

Chasing an early model Canon F-1 has become a bit harder as these cameras are now over 50 years old. Finding one with an original chrome-nosed Canon lens is even harder but certainly worth the effort. Thanks for stopping by! – Chris

A special kitty

Candy

I have pictures scattered in different places around the house and studio and sometimes I find an image or two that I forgot I had. This was or very sweet kitty, Candy. We found her in the early 1980s as an abandoned kitten barely alive so we took her in. She grew to be a sweetheart of a cat with some of the softest fur and cutest meow. She was blind in one eye although it’s hard to see which one it was in this pic. Here she’s pictured around 1995. Canon F-1 on Kodak color negative film.

Public School No. 1 building, Fernandina Beach, Amelia Island, Florida. This grand building is home to the county office for the Nassau County School Board.

The image above was taken with my Canon EOS R full-frame mirrorless camera and Canon EF 16-35mm zoom lens late in the afternoon. In the image below taken about mid-day, I used my ca.1964 Yashica Mat EM twin-lens reflex film camera which shoots a 6x6cm square image on 120 roll film.

I enjoy photographing the many historic buildings in and around the Fernandina Beach Historic District using different cameras and formats. Thanks for stopping by! – Chris
