Pick up your portfolio and
take a merciless look. If you're hit-
ting the mark creatively but not in
execution, take a look at Canon.-
The good things youVe
heard about Canon SLR's are true.
One of the best things about them
is our line of nearly forty lenses
from fisheye to super-telephoto,
including aspherics and our ex-
clusive fluorites. They represent
the optical state-of-the-art. This
means they have sharpness and
contrast and they don't have flare,
distortion or annoying aberra-
tions. Mechanically, they can't be
Our camera bodies are a
beautiful blend of form and func-
tion. They'll help you work surer
and faster because once you'Ve
run through the controls, opera-

tion is second nature. The meter-
ing system common to the F-1 and
FTb measures only the center
12% of the finder area, Consis-
tently. No matter what lens is in
place. Whether you're into the
Zone System or shoot from the
hip, you'll come to rely on it.
Best thing is, a Canon is
priced within easy reach. There's
no time like a Bicentennial year to
declare your photographic inde-
pendence and picture America
with a Canon. Your dealer will be
happy to show you the profes-
sional F-1, the remarkable FTb or
one of our other fine SLR's, the
electronic EF or solid TX. Visit him
