3) CANON EOS 1N RS - professional 35mm film camera. This is the rare one built with a pellicle mirror which means that there is no blackout during exposure since light travels through the mirror to the film and the mirror does not need to flip up during the exposure. This allows the camera to have an incredibly fast shooting rate of 10 frames per second when set on continuous high, great for sports and action shots. This camera is no lightweight since the body and motor drive are built as one unit. Camera body is in great shape but is missing the rubber eyecup. This camera sold new for $2700.00. It has been a great camera but I don't use it now that I have my digital bodies. Best offer gets it but I would like to get $500. Contact Jim Stoner 936-273-4388

This camera was bought because of a job I was taking with a newspaper.
I ended up not getting it, so it has been waiting for someone to
use it. It works great and comes with TWO lenses: The 18mm-35mm
and Canon Zoom lens EF, 75-300mm, f4-5.6 with image stabilizer.
This is a great camera. Contact Gabriel
