Pop Photo: This is what a 14fps SLR looked like in 1984

Popular Photography reminds us that the EOS-1D X, announced earlier this week, isn't the first SLR from Canon to be capable of 14fps continuous shooting.

On the magazine's website they've published a quick look at the Canon New F-1 High Speed Motor Drive, a pro film camera introduced in 1984 that was capable of the same blazing speed and that could gobble up a roll of 36-exposure film in about 2.5 seconds.

The story also notes that Nikon produced their own similar 35mm body some years later, the 13.5fps F3H.

Both the Canon and Nikon film cameras featured fixed pellicle mirrors and were developed for used by photographers at the Olympics.
