Whats your guys' favorite old EOS SLR for manual focus? I think mine was the old old 630, it had a great uncluttered viewfinder that felt really large, kind of like the Olympus OM-1.

The 1N and 1V I used to work with also had great viewfinders and with the EC-B split-screen installed manual focus was a total breeze.

I may look for another 630 just to use my Zeiss 50mm on film, I want to see how it renders :D

i hate all of my EOS cameras for MF.

if i ever use MF, i use my pentax 645 or nikkormat ftn.

Lol I know it's often an exercise in futility, but humor me, say one wanted an inexpensive eos body so they wouldn't have to buy into a new system ;)

I have an Elan 7N. It was one of the last film cameras that Canon made. I got mine on EBay in 2008 unused in original box for around $75. I think I bought the battery grip for $20.

The original Elan 7 was my first Canon SLR. :) good memories.

I've been fortunate to have owned some great EOS bodies over the years (a couple 3s, a 1N and a 1V) but the only one that had a large feeling VF was the 600 series. The 1s have a 100% VF but it's something like a .7x magnification. Where by comparison my old Pentax MX has a .98x magnification.

Hmmm... I seem to have a conundrum here... Which camera do I put this roll of film in? :lol:

Clean Canonet. QL 2.5 is NOT a common model, either.

That said, the AE-1 is simply a joy to shoot. I really don't care for rangefinders, I'm finding, especially when they're not any more compact than the SLR alternative.

The nice thing is, there's already a roll in the AE-1. I get to play with my new Canonet next week! :)

Just a few from my occupy project... love my all-manual cameras for personal stuff. These are 35mm but my fave is my Fuji GS645s by far.

My Canonet has never had a battery in it the exposures still turn out right, used that for a lot of these :cool:

yea masturbatory comment right there, I know
