My trouble camera is a Canon 36395. Double stamped serial number plates were also produced number on both front and back of the neck plate in late 1957 to early 1959. If so, the guitar is a factory refinish, or had some other kind of factory work done. I bought a refurbed 7D from Canon back in Nov. Used for miscellaneous street photography, family photos, and to bang in the occasional nail. After you've adjusted it, you have to check the horizontal adjustment and reset it if necessary.
This internal code is also occasionally omitted based on reports from Canon owners. I'll probably buy a flash bulb unit for the retro charm, but it would be nice to be able to use an electronic flash when the bulbs run out. Even tho I've got 50Ds, I don't recall the details of firmware updates. Again, sometimes they used them and sometimes they didn't. Schneider Kreuznach Xenar 240mm f 4.
The only major cost-cutting change was a simpler viewfinder: no switchable magnifications, and with 35mm, 50mm and 100mm framelines all together in the same view. So if you use the white primer to cover the wood and make the body a consistent white color, you can use about half as much color paint for a uniform top color. James, if you will provide your serial number, I will see what I can find with regard to the date it was made. The warranty clearly states that the card and the bill of sale must be presented for warranty service. That would give you at least a range of dates to work with.
Therefore some guitars will still be original, even if they don't pass all the following specs. The use of a speculum dentist's mirror allows to read the number even if it is facing the camera's folding bed. All Canon professional products are manufactured to the highest quality standards that businesses and working professionals require. Also note that Fender did not always use Dupont paints for their guitars! What Did Fender Use after Lacquer in 1968? This system of serial numbers is unique to this model until about 1955 even though Fender went to a universal neckplate serial number system on all instruments in 1954, some old style Precision Bass serialized bridges were still left over and used until 1955. If you had real Canon gear for this market.
This occurs when the finish dries and sinks into the open pores of the wood, leaving a finish with many dimples. You have to cut your film leaders extra long to load them properly. After all, you're not gonna see the yellow on a custom color body, so what's the difference?. The name 'Canon' comes from the Buddhist deity Kwanon and early Canon cameras were actually spelled 'Kwanon' and the lenses were named 'Kyasapa' after another deity. If you want to attach a remote release, you need to use an adaptor.
If Fender had the time to use undercoat, they did. Canon techs do drop in here on the forum occasionally. Cleaning may help the haze, but there doesn't seem to be anything that can be done about the framelines -- they're silvered onto a glass plate and the silvering simply deteriorates with age. This was made possible by a gentleman who spent years collecting thousands of serial numbers for F-1s, and very generously shared his data with me when I wanted to undertake a similar project of my own. Sorry again about the misspelled hello. Used with kind permission of Jim Williams who wants to add the caveat that he wrote this while waiting for his dinner and this should not be considered to cover every minor variation between the models. So looks like I whined about nothing.
If Canon had managed to get projected framelines and increased the eye relief, this system would have been a huge success. Metal patch covers where slow speed would normally be. And this number is now placed on the body of the lens. If you have the date code, though, as Mark mentions, it's far easier. Hence most metallic finished bodies went through the whole production process, and got the yellow stain, Fullerblast, undercoated, and a clear coat. These large, stamped numbers sometimes denote a guitar as having some factory repair work, usually refinishing.
Mounted with the shown above, it's a compact and very tough camera. Also Desert Sand was also sometimes used as an undercoat. Fullerplast dries in 15 minutes, and is paintable in one hour. However, now we can age a lens based on the serial number alone. All they did was spray more color coats especially if a clear coat wasn't used.
