Canon 1014 for sale

This page is dedicated to the Canon Auto Zoom 1014 Looking for his more modern brother? Go here: Canon 1014 XLS.


If, in 1973, you were willing to fork out more than $1000 (about $5,500.00 in today's money), you would have been the proud owner of the brand-new Canon Auto Zoom 1014. This camera has an overlap system comprising a rewind system and variable shutter mechanism. And finally, a 10x f/1.4 zoom lens with a new zooming mechanism was developed with a filter diameter of 58 mm. Slow motion shooting? No problem with a whopping 54 fps. Continuous single frame shooting is also one of the many features of this great, retro camera.
