The Canon New F-1 which was released in late 1981 replaced the original F-1 which made its appearance in 1971. This latest F-1 was a radical step forward for Canon’s professional camera as it incorporated many features into the camera that were previously only available as an accessory. The 1985 Los Angeles Olympics model followed in line with previous Olympic editions – 1976 Montreal and the 1980 Lake Placid.

Canon New F-1 (or F-1N)

Sometimes a well-used camera can feel just right in your hands – no worries about keeping it mint – just focus on getting the shot. This one has certainly earned its keep and rewarded me with its lovely patina. Showin’ a little brass!
