    FS: Canon F-1N bodies, FD lenses, accessories

    I've been holding onto all this gear for pure nostalgia, but it's time to let it go to someone who'll use it.

    The Canon F-1N (final iteration of the F-1) is an amazingly flexible camera system platform, with a ton of interchangeable options and accessories. The user can swap - in the field - prism finders, focus screens, power winders, remote releases, flash adapters, etc. And the range of FD (and FL) mount lenses available for the F-1N may not yet have been surpassed by the EOS mount offerings. The F-1N is a workhorse camera, built to withstand professional-level abuse and keep going, and you could literally drive nails with it before it would stop working.

    Here's what I have left to sell:

    F-1N camera bodies x2 -- $100, $75
    These are in well-used condition, with plenty of character (brassing, nicks, etc.). One has a dent in the prism housing (no functional effect) so cheaper.
    I haven't used these cameras in several years, so I cannot vouch for the accuracy of their shutter speeds, and the film advances could probably benefit from a drop of lubrication, but they're in good operational shape. (I put a battery into each camera and verified that the shutter fires and the meter is responsive.)
    Each body comes with the standard eye-level prism finder (match-needle metering, manual exposure), and the very useful PE focus screen (selective-area metering, split/microprism focusing). They take a 6-volt battery (PX28, PX28L, A544, 4SR44, 4LR44) -- not included.
    First buyer get an old battery with a bit of juice in it to verify the camera works.

    AE Power Winder FN -- $50
    Single advance or continuous at 2 fps, runs off 4 AA batteries, provides grip and vertical shutter release. Adds shutter-priority AE to the camera, as well.
    Excellent condition with instruction manual.

    Wireless Controller LC-1 -- $75
    Just what it sounds like: You mount the receiver on the camera's flash shoe, plug it into the power winder or motor drive, and use the wireless remote to trigger the shutter. Great for no-look selfies of you playing with the kids/pets!
    The kit includes a mounting bracket, in case the camera's flash shoe is occupied (or you've installed a prism finder that doesn't have a flash shoe). Remote takes 2 AA batteries, receiver takes a 9-volt battery.
    Like-new condition in leatherette slipcase.

    Speedlite 299T flash -- $50
    Electronic flash with zoom head (28mm/35mm/85mm), takes 4 AA batteries.
    Like-new condition in box with instruction manual and leatherette slipcase. (Box shows some wear.)

    50mm f/1.4 SSC lens in FD "breech lock" mount -- $100
    The 50/1.4 SSC is a classic Canon SLR lens -- sharp, contrasty, rich color rendering -- and built like a tank.
    This lens is in beautiful condition, optically and mechanically: Clean glass (a bit of dust), smooth focus, solid aperture clicks, clean diaphragm blades, smooth/solid mounting action.
    Cosmetics are very good, with one small area of paint rubbed off near the mounting ring, and the knurling on the mounting ring scuffed. Otherwise, the lens is in really nice condition, with just a bit of normal surface wear.
    Includes original front and rear caps.

    35mm f/2 lens in FDn "bayonet" mount -- $100
    This is the fastest 35mm lens in the FD lineup, and another Canon classic.
    This lens is in beautiful mechanical and cosmetic condition: Smooth and positive focus, aperture and mounting action, and clean diaphragm blades.
    Optically, the lens has light-to-moderate haze, but is otherwise excellent, without scratches or other issues. It should be still a good shooter, and if someone wants to have it cleaned, it'll be a really great shooter.
    Includes original front and rear caps.

    BS-52 lens hoods x2 -- $10 each
    These plastic hoods bayonet onto any FD lens with a 52mm filter ring. They're intended for the 50mm (standard) lenses (FDn 50/1.2, 50/1.2L, 50/1.4, 50/1.8); but they'll also work on some of the longer lenses (85/1.8, 100/2.8, 135/2.8). And they're reversible on the lens, for convenient storage.
    The hoods are in user condition -- i.e., they fit a little bit loosely. This eventually happens to all the FD plastic bayonet mount hoods, with typical use. I like to put a bit of gaffer's tape on the friction bearings, and then they fit better than new.

    BW-52A lens hood -- $10
    This is the plastic bayonet hood for the FDn 35/2 lens; but it also works on the 35/2.8, as well as any of the lenses mentioned above for the BS-52 hoods.
    Same condition as the BS-52 hoods -- works, but fits a bit loosely, easily fixed with a little piece of gaffer's tape.

    C-72 lens cap -- $5
    This is the snap-on cap for any of the FD lenses with 72mm filter ring, including: 17/4, 20/2.8, 24/1.4L, 85/1.2L, 135/2, 200/2.8, 20-35/3.5 zoom, 24-35/3.5 zoom, 35-105/3.5 zoom etc.
    Excellent condition.
