Pimp My Camera: The Woodenized Canon F1

Pimp my camera


Patrick Ng has an old Canon F1n and decided to do some modding. After peeling of the fake leather parts from the camera he applied wood-like decay stickers. Nice effect, very vintage. Could be a working business idea. More pics on his homepage.

Canon produced the F1 between 1971 and 1976. It is generally considered Canon’s first truly professional SLR. If you want to know more about the Canon F1 have a look at Wikipedia. You can find the Canon F1 on eBay.

    It would be nice if a Canon blog site sees the difference between F1n (upper) and a F1 (lower), they are totally different cameras…

      not totally different, but thanks for your advice

  • For that perfect photo, pay attention to depth-of-field! Practice shooting photographs using differing apertures and note how the different settings affect your final image. A smaller depth-of-field is useful for focusing attention on a single element, such as a portrait shot of a person or pet. The background will appear blurry, making the subject stand out. A greater depth-of-field is great for landscapes, keeping the entire frame in focus and allowing the eye to take in the full effect.
