I have gone digital! My film cameras are going on the block.
This is a Canon F1N, the later of the "F" series professional 35mm camera line. It accepts the Canon FD manual focus lenses and features a titanium shutter, interchangeable prisms and focusing screens.
This one has the automatic exposure (AE ) finder, which is removable, (so you can focus with a loupe if desired) and also a rare "AI" focusing screen designed specifically for astrophotography.
From the Canon documentation:
Well suited for applications requiring high magnifications such as photomicrography and astrophotography. The screen features a 5mm-diameter center spot with cross-hair reticle in a fine matte field. To focus, move your eye from left to right. Pinpoint focus is attained when the hairs remain in the same position on the subject.
The original microprism focusing screen is also included as well as a Canon FD "T" adapter.
Excellent condition, $375 shipped. Paypal preferred.
