    For sale is a Canon EOS 3 body in excellent+ condition. The exterior shows some very light signs of minimal use (the owner switched to digital soon after purchasing) and all electronics and mechanics are working as new. Missing the little rubber cap which covers the PC sync plug. This has the eye control focus mechanism which tracks where you're looking and switches the focus points accordingly. A fantastic camera built for professionals. Comes with original box, and neck strap.

    Asking $160

    IDK, considering this doesn't have a PB-1 or 2 or BP-2 it seems like a fair deal.

    NO
    That is about the price they go for on eBay without the battery pack. I have been watching for a while now. And I didn't have $160 for this G.A.S. attack. This time.........:D :D :D :cool:

    I still have to print it, of course!

    5x7?
    6x9?
    8x12?
    I also have some postcard paper, which is double weight RC, a little smaller than 4x6.

    Camera is in hand, and I shot my first roll last night (T-Max 400, Kings/Canadiens). Calibrated the ECF, dialed in all my usual custom functions, and got a spare battery. ($14...ouch!) Thanks. Your print will be printed this coming week.

    What struck me most of all is how light the camera is. Interesting to be shooting film through a 35mm SLR that weighs so little. Feels "funny". However, this will be a "special application" camera for me, so it is not like I have to really get used to it.

    You can get those batteries (2cr5) for around 4-5.00 usd shipped off ebay.

    Or get a battery grip that allows you to switch between the 2cr5 and 4 AA's. I think that grip is the BP-E1.

    Yes, Battery Pack BP-E1 (14,4oz with 4 AA's); or heavier Power Drive Booster E1 or E2 (~26oz with 8 AA's).
    These grips are also compatible with Eos 1 and 1N.
