How you express yourself
depends upon your camera.

REMEMBER."-Michigan Boy



Today almost everybody is getting into photography.
And it's not the snapshot variety People are doing
sports stories, nature stories, portraits-you may
even have a friend who's doing photographs through
a microscope. Or a telescope.
You also know that everybody has his own idea
about which camera is best. That's why it's important
for you to know about the Canon F-1. Because it's the
system camera that's fast becoming the favorite of
professionals. And the new status symbol among
photography enthusiasts.

The whole F-1 system includes over 40 lenses and
200 accessories. It's capable of doing virtually
everything in photography So whatever idea you
have for a picture, the F-1 has the equipment to make
sure you get it.
Because it was conceived from the beginning as a
system, it works as a system. All the elements are
quickly and easily interchangeable. No matter which
lens or accessory you use with the F-1 body you won't
have the feeling that something has been
"tacked on."
What's more the F-1 is comfortable to handle.
Years of research went into the design of the F-1 body
and placement of controls so your fingers fall
naturally into place. You'll appreciate this comfort
when you're on assignment. It's also an important
thing to keep in mind if you're investing in a camera
you plan to keep a long time.
Canon has been in the optics industry over 37
years. We make microscope equipment amateur and
professional movie cameras and TV lenses. It's this
experience that helps make our still cameras the best
selling cameras in Japan. In America, it's just a matter
of time.
See your dealer for more information. He Il also
