  • Canon A1 Black

    Clean, restored Canon A-1. Body of the camera is in excellent condition, no brassing or major scratches, just a couple of small dents on the bottom cover. Shutter fires accurately at all speeds, film transport, timer and meter all work properly. Mirror release mechanism was lubricated and shutter is squeak-free. Viewfinder and focusing screen are bright and clear - just a couple of tiny specs of dust - barely visible and will not affect your shooting. Original leatherette are in excellent shape. Light seals and mirror guard were just replaced with fresh foam for years of trouble-free shooting ($25 value). Internal mechanics of the camera were cleaned and lubricated. The camera is equipped with a original finger grip, viewfinder eyecup, Canon camera strap, factory manual and a fresh battery for the meter. In addition, Focal DA-2000 compact flash in excellent shape is included, which syncs and fires properly with the camera (needs two AA batteries for operation - not included). This camera comes with a Canon FD 50mm f/1.8 standard prime lens in excellent condition. The glass elements are free from scratches, but there is a minor amount of thin fungus inside. This will have no detrimental effect on the quality of images. Aperture is free from oil and functions properly. The barrel shows almost no signs of use, except one tiny chip in the plastic of the name ring. No dents, and filter threads are intact. The lens comes with genuine Canon front cap. Classic advanced film SLR, pleasure to shoot. dition.
