    I want to buy a Canon F1 Body in working condition. Cosmetics are not a concern. I am on vacation so my internet browsing will be sporadic. However, I will get back to you.
    Thank.

    You need to be more specific - original F-1/F-1n... or newer F-1N? (The newer one is the model with the hot shoe on the prism, the older ones don't have a hot shoe built in.)

    I considered KEH as I have only had good experiences with them. I figured I'd give it a shot here first. I found an F1 through an APUG member, so barring the unexpected, this is finished.

    I may have what you're looking for.
    I'm running a test roll through it now.

    F1-N hybrid shutter

    Not strictly true Dennis the new F1 shutter is a part electronic, part mechanical hybrid one that even without batteries will fully operate at all speeds from 1/125 up, so if the the battery fails you just remove it, and use a separate meter, only the slow speeds are electronically controlled..
