    The EOS 3 is roughly the equivalent of the F100, but if you're willing to spend a bit more I'd say go for the 1N/1V to be honest, they are a half body camera as standard powered by a 2CR5 battery (housed in the removable grip), or you can buy the motordrive which lets you use 8 AAs and gives you the vertical grip too. This is (imo) more secure than the grip on the F100 as it replaces the standard handgrip too, instead of just screwing into the bottom.

    A good illustration is here:

    Chronologically and technologically speaking...

    F4 ~ EOS 1
    F5 ~ EOS 1N-HS
    F100 ~ EOS 3
    F6 ~ EOS 1V

    Trying to compare them feature-for-feature would be a waste of time. The F100 and EOS 3 were both great cameras, as was the Maxxum 7.

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    Not a fair comparison, the F6 and the EOS 1V are no match for each other.

    Equivalent in the line up then it would be the EOS-3 for sure. As far as Nikon or Canon is better? I am a Nikon kind of guy so I think the Nikon is better but then it's not fair at all. I would say take your pick.

    The EOS3 has no Nikon equivalent as Nikon never incorporated ECF - Eye Control Focus. Used it for years and one of the best features about it was that I could midroll rewind an unfinished roll, put it back in and advance to the next unused frame perfectly each and every time. Like the Nikon F100, the EOS3 doesn't have a 100% viewfinder.

    That would be awesome. But that's beyond the camera's capabilities as the camera has no idea which particular film cassette you're putting in, and so only advances to frame 1. Only APS was capable of this, on account of its magnetic stripe. No idea if it actually did this, however.

    Minolta Dynax 7 (probably 9 too) had the ability to wind to a specific frame, so you could basically juggle several films if you took care to note the last exposed frame on each container.

    Also, wireless flash triggering using the inbuilt flash was pretty spiffy.

    EOS 1V.
    None of these high-spec cameras are required for insightful, creative and conceptually well visualised photography and are best left to gear freaks to tinker with — particularly the silly, gimmicky "eye controlled focus" of the blighted EOS 3.

    I don't need anything other than my now very old EOS 1N.
