    Was Canon's flagship in the heydays. Was roughly equivalent to a Nikon F3 at that time. Mechanical or electromechanical (can't remember), rugged pro body. With motor drive can go 10fps (faster than the 1V!). Has optional film spool magazine for you to shoot beyond 36 frames. Uses Canon FD lenses, which unfortunately has been discontinued, but still available (though not a lot) in the 2nd hand market. Not really worth buying now. Might as well get a Nikon F3 if all you want is a rugged, electromechanical body. At least you will have a bigger choice of lenses that way.

    Regards

    Most of the second hand camera shops still have it. Only a few hundred dollars, not like the price it use to command in its heyday.

    Cheers,
