Jonathon symbolized this hope
for many and that's what made
it so popular a year or so ago.

The canon. F-I.
Images are what it's all about
Photographic equipment can
be a trap. Sometimes, you can get
so involved with it that you lose
sight of your real purpose-
The Canon F-1 can help you
forget about equipment and
concentrate on images. It was
designed, and functions, as an
extension of your photographic
vision. It's responsive in a way that
you must experience to appreciate.
And since it was conceived as a
system camera, every part works
together with effortless smooth-
ness, from the more than 40 Canon
FD and FL lenses to the over 200
The heart of the camera is it's
central spot metering system.
With it you can use anyone's
exposure system, no matter how
critical, since.it only measures the
central 12% of the finder area-
regardless of the focal length used.
So if you're spending too much
time lately worrying about your
equipment, it's time you stopped,
and took a good look at the Canon
F-1 system, and Canon's other
fine cameras-the automatic,
electronic EF, the full-feature FTb,
and the TLb. If you're interested
in images, Canon's your camera.
