Canon A1 Black

  • Canon A1 Black

    Another Canon A-1 we have available - this one is in near-mint condition. One of the most advanced and full-featured Canon film cameras of its day, with a digital LED display for shutter speed and aperture and a full set of features. Robust camera, well regarded by advanced amateurs and semi-pro photographers, but user-friendly for a beginner. Full user manual is available at

    Shutter, self-timer and film transport work properly. Meter appears to respond properly to light, shutter and lens settings, but accuracy was not verified with film. Shutter is squeak-free. Light seals are original and in good condition, but can be replaced at buyer's request ($25 extra). Original finger grip and viewfinder cup are included.

    MINT-. No major blemishes or dents, just very few micro-scratches on the bottom plate. Bright and clean lettering on the dials. Focusing screen and viewfinder are scratch- and dust-free. Original leatherette is in excellent condition. Battery door is intact. Very clean camera.


    • Canon FD 50mm f/1.8 prime lens. Clean, no fungus or visible scratches on glass. Aperture is oil-free and snappy. Focusing is smooth. The barrel of the lens shows normal wear consistent with age, no dents. Genuine Canon front and rear caps, skylight filter and original factory box for the lens are included.
    • Vintage Canon camera strap and a fresh battery for the camera.
