    good condition is ~$400, if the shutter is fine $250 is a steal

    So buy it. :dunno:

    My friend has a 1V-HS (I don't know where the dash goes) It's nice. He said he got it for like $300.

  16. I would tell him 150, he might go for it or he might meet you somewhere in between.
    You can find new Canon 35mm bodies at some walmarts for cheap!

    $120 and no more, it looks good but it has been kept in bad conditions. Shit is too dirty. Make sure it takes good photos before you purchase if possible

    Not a Canon user but what makes the EOS3 such a high priced camera, used? Is it a semi pro body?

    2nd from the top, 100% viewfinder, 7fps with motor drive, 45 point AF, supposedly the best AF built yet, eye control AF, sturdy body etc.

    the 1vhs had more features (prints info on the lead of the film that corresponds to data saved inthe camera you can download to see the exif of film :noes: ), faster AF, more ergonomic design, but no eye controlled focus. It was also 2x+ the price new, at $2k with the motor drive.

    I bought one a few years ago with 2 grips and some extras for 900
