    Canon EOS1n/V

    Hi all,

    I am trying to get my hands on a Canon EOS1n or V. eBay has a few, but before buying one there I thought I'd ask if anyone has any site recommendations or stores that sell them new (highly unlikely I know) or used.

    I'd also appreciate any help in how to check the quality of a used film model. Other than checking the sensor, what should I look at?

    Thanks in advance

    Thanks heaps! I must have forgotten to punch in the 1v on their site.

    How do you check how many rolls of film have gone through? Or do you just go on the seller's word?

    UMMMM, you are asking about a FILM camera, and then asking what to look at other than the SENSOR ???
