    I think it comes down to flash usage. If you use a lot of flash, then I would say the 1v is the way to go for it's better E-TTL flashing algorithm, which makes for better and repeatable flashing performance. The 1v is Canon's best film body, and since used prices are reasonable, why consider any other EOS body?
    Coming back home to my film roots. Canon EOS-3 SLR, Canon EOS 1V SLR, 580ex flash, and 5D DSLR shooter. Prime lens only shooter.

    If I use flash, it's either a Norman portable or studio strobes. Maybe I'd think of going Lumedyne or Quantum, if I had really good E-TTL, but I'm not using a lot of on-camera flash in general.

    So I finally got around to making this purchase--EOS 1-N RS for $295 + 15 shipping off eBay, including a spare battery pack and remote switch 60 T3.

    Looking forward to putting some Tri-X behind my Zeiss 85/1.4 Planar ZE.

    Congrats! I really enjoy my 1N-RS. If you do use flash with it, a bonus is that you can see the picture the moment the flash fires while usually with an SLR the mirror is up of course. The 1N-RS still a lot cheaper than a 1V for some reason and I like the pellicle mirror, dust hasn't been an issue at all.

    I need a T3 remote. For some reason I thought it was N3 but I was wrong...

    Does your battery pack still charge or did you mean the 8-AA cell pack? That's all I have since every NiCad E1 I've come across won't hold a charge, too old and NiCads were never that good to begin with.

    It's the 8-AA cell pack. It's possible to recell old Ni-Cd packs, but it's just easier to deal with AA rechargeables, I think.

    I used to have the Ni-Cd Pack FN for my New F-1 motor drive, because it seemed insane to lug a camera with 12 AAs around in it, but eventually the pack wouldn't hold a charge, so I sold it to someone who wanted to take the trouble to recell it, and haven't regretted the move to the AA pack, which actually gets a better frame rate than the Ni-Cd pack on the New F-1 (5 fps vs. 4.5 fps), not that I really need the extra 0.5 fps, but the camera feels more responsive even in single frame mode.

    Recelling NiCad sounds like more trouble than it's worth.

    On the F1 12 AAs is a lot, you have to lug even more if you have the EE finder too! I love the Canon FD and FL stuff too though I've actually put my motor drives away, when I'm shooting those cameras I like to wind the film myself, focus myself, set the exposure myself. I save the drives and auto exposure for EOS usually.

    Speaking of responsive, the RS is amazing for that, can't beat 6 milliseconds! It is great to see the actual moment too so you know you got the shot you wanted when shooting action.

    My 1N-RS arrived and all seems to be working properly. First impression--It's bigger than I expected and despite all the ergonomics, I intuitively like the feel of my New F-1 better, but I guess using a camera for 27 years or so will do that to you. Preferring manual focus exclusively, the New F-1 screens seem more suited to the task than the stock RS screen, but the focus confirmation on the RS seems to function properly at least for iffy focus situations. I found the manual online, and it didn't seem to hard to figure out all the functions, which were a bit mysterious at first, but at least there aren't as many of them as on my Canon of the sort that's off-topic for APUG.

    I like the pellicle mirror design, no mirror blackout, quick reaction time, and the option of high shutter speeds and 1/250 s flash sync speed (I know, no big deal anymore, but most of my cameras sync at much lower speeds).

    I fed it my last roll of K64, and I'll give myself a week to shoot it, so I can get it to Dwayne's in time.

    One more vote for the EOS 3. It has all the important parts of the performance of the 1V, and the price is right (usually under $200). Is isn't a brick outhouse like the 1's - only a cinderblock one. It is newer than the 1N-RS, and easier to use over all, IMO. The 1 series is great, but the way I see it, there is only one real reason to get the 1N-RS, and that is for its unique feature. If that will be of no use to you (and possibly be a detriment, e.g. light loss), then I would not get the camera. If you want a camera with a pellicle mirror, I'd just get a Pellix QL. Personally, I do not believe the mirror shake thing makes a bit of difference unless on a tripod anyhow, and I'd rather not have that light loss.

    I'll toss a vote in for the Elan 7Ne, I shoot one and love it, it's the 35mm companion for my digital Rebel. I suppose one day I will upgrade to a 1-series but so far I am impressed with my 7Ne. I love it to pieces.

    I had the 1N-RS out today--strange sensation to be holding a 35mm SLR and not feel any mirror movement, and the film advance is very rapid and quiet.
