In 1973, if you forked out more than 1000 USD, you could have been a proud owner of a 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.
