    "When the AE Power Winder FN or AE Motor Drive FN is attached to the New Canon F-1, a choice of shutter-priority AE or manual exposure is available according to the shooting situation and your personal preference."

    -So to get shutter priority metering you have to have have a external winder attached??
    Wtf is the AE Finder for then if the camera allready has aperture priority but requires the winder for Tv?

    Hmm, F1, F1n, F1N, so which one is the 84 Olympics model I just acquired? Are there different models of the 17mm lens that came attached to it? Bill Barber

    The winder on the New F-1 is supplying extra power to the camera to set the aperture automatically with shutter priority AE. The AE Finder FN has the metering control for aperture priority AE. If you have the standard finder, you don't have aperture priority AE.

    I have the AE finder and the motor drive, but personally, I've always used spot metering and manual exposure.

    '84 Olympics I would assume is the New F-1, because it was already in production for a couple of years by then, though there was an Olympics model of the F-1n as well, but must have been 1980. If the rewind knob is on top and there is a battery door on the front, then you've got a New F-1. If there is a self-timer/stop down lever on the face of the camera, then it would be an F-1n.

    According to the information I have read the F1n and the F1N were produced with one year overlapping. The F1n I have, according to the serial # (inside the film chamber) was produced in 1981. I think that was the same year that the F1N was produced also. You hear so much from different sources it is hard to confirm.

    The clues you have are:Matte black rather than glossy, Rewind switch on top of the camera, Auto exposure, and I believe it uses a PX-28 battery. It's a New F1 not F1N or F1n.
    The older models did not have any auto features unless you used the special prism and arm that fit in the side of the camera to give TV auto.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    If the shutter speed on a New F-1 is set to "A" and the lens' aperture ring is not on the green "A" setting, the F-1 will provide aperture preferred automatic exposure with any finder attached. However, the AE Finder FN is the only one which has a shutter speed scale in the viewfinder to tell you what speed has been selected. If a power winder or motor drive is attached, the New F-1 will provide shutter priority AE at the selected shutter speed if the lens' aperture ring is set to the green "A."

    With respect to the FD 17mm f/4 lens, there were three basic versions. The first one released in 1971 with the original F-1 has the breech lock ring and single coating. The second has the breech lock ring and SSC multi-coating. Canon did not make a lens hood for either of these. The third and last version had the New FD breech-bayonet lens mount and a bayonet mount for the BW-72 lens hood. All three versions are based on the same optical formula.

    Thank you all for answering my questions. At first I was a little dissapointed with the New-F1 but I am warming up to it.

    All the F-1 cameras are a little more "modular" than they need to be (like, on the original F-1, a flash shoe is an accessory), but I've been very happy with my New F-1 for over 25 years now.
