I finally got a new used fully operational copy of a Canon F-1.
I bought one when I was a just a kid from my neighbor when he updated to a Canon A-1. I used it my last 2 years of HS, through college, and until I got out of the USAF. In college we had a photo club with a full darkroom. I shot a lot of college basketball and wrestling, and developed and printed my own B&W. I have no idea if any prints or negatives survived though. If they did I can't find them? Once I got out of the USAF I traded it on a Canon A-1 but I never took to that camera. I kind of gave up on photography until my Grandfather passed away and I was given his Nikon FTN kit. I've been back at photography ever since but gravitated to Canon EOS, both film and digital. I am working on assembling a developing kit and will resume doing my own B&W film, which I plan to scan.
It took me a while to find a good F-1, and it took me even longer to find a good motor drive MF, but I have what I need now and the only thing stopping me is me. Oh, and the pictures displayed were shot with an Olympus C-5050. I like to collect and use older gear be it camera gear or fishing gear. Use to destruction is my motto!
