Done it again ! Bought another flaming film camera. Not medium format this time but 35mm. Despite convincing myself I DO NOT NEED ONE OF THESE. Camera is a Canon F1 New with AE finder £250 also bought a winder FN for £60 these two items give the camera both shutter and arpeture priority. Even tho it will most likely be used on manual exposure. So much for convincing myself.

Sounds like a good purchase.

The F1 was Cannons rival to the market dominance of the Nikon F2 with the professional community back in the day.

Just like the F2 its a system camera with multiple interchangeable configurations.

The only thing I recall back in the day is that you need one particular winder and prism combination to shoot both shutter and aperture priority.

Oh and they brass up quite quickly due to the matt finish cannon applied to them.
