WORKING BLACK CANON F-1 PRO 35mm SLR FILM CAMERA - SERVICE/SPARES

THIS EARLY BLACK CANON F-1 PRO 35mm SLR FILM CAMERA FROM THE 1970s COMES IN WELL USED BUT SEMI-WORKING CONDITION.

THE BODYWORK SHOWS SIGNS OF WEAR WITH A COUPLE OF SMALL DINGS TO THE PRISM AND VIEWFINDER AND SOME BRASSING TO THE PAINTWORK. THERE IS NO CORROSION HOWEVER AND THE LEATHERETTE IS FAIRLY CLEAN AND COMPLETE . INSIDE THE LIGHT SEALS ARE IN POOR SHAPE. A COVER IS MISSING TO WHAT I BELIEVE IS THE DOOR THAT ACCEPTS A 'SERVO EE FINDER'

THE SHUTTER IS WORKING BUT ACCURACY IS NOT TESTED AND THE MIRROR STAYS UP AT THE SLOWER SPEEDS. THE LIGHT METER IS ACTIVE WHEN A BATTERY IS IN PLACE BUT THE DISPLAY IN THE VIEWFINDER IS VERY MURKY. THE ON/OFF SWITCH IS VERY STIFF. THE VIEWFINDER ITSELF IS CLEAR TO LOOK THROUGH.

IT COMES WITH A NICE CANON FD f1.8/50mm S.C. LENS (serial no.688238) WHICH LOOKS CLEAN AND SCRATCH AND FUNGUS FREE. LIKE ALL OLD LENSES THERE IS A LITTLE DUST IN THERE WHICH WOULD NOT IMPACT ON USE. THE FOCUSSING MOVEMENT IS SMOOTH AND THE DIAPHRAGM IS STOPPING DOWN BUT HAS A TOUCH OF OIL IN THERE.

IT COMES WITH ITS WELL WORN ORIGINAL CASE AND STRAP.

AN INTERESTING CAMERA NEEDING A SERVICE OR RESTORATION AND ALSO GOOD FOR SPARE PARTS?

IT IS HEAVY.

THANKS FOR LOOKING.
