    How is the condition of the shutter?

    The 1N is a pro body and was probably used by a pro...so the shutter has probably been tripped thousands & thousands of times. Although, the shutter on pro bodies is made to last longer than those on cheaper bodies.

    Have fun with it.

    My guess from looking at it is that it has never had film run through it... The clear plastic piece that they place over the pressure plate is still there and doesn't look like it's been taken off/put back on... Also, inside the back plate there is no sign of loading/unloading film. There is only slight wear on the camera body it'self... some on the back and one where the shutter release is. Oh, it just occured to me that if there's a scratch next to the shutter release then it must have had use... right?

    Also, if you have any idea what it would mean if there is a number "1" painted on the bottom in blue paint. Perhapse a show camera???

    The shutter curtain it'self is perfect... I see no scratches or wear on it.
    I will post photos of it later tonight.

    If you have any ideas/thoughts please say them!
    I am really impressed with this camera all in all, I've never had a professional body before... I don't think I've ever really used one... lol

    I'll be having a lot of fun... for the next 100 years! :lmao:
