Canon A1 Black

  • Canon A1 Black

    Restored Canon A-1 in fully functional 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, film transport and and self-timer work properly. Meter appears to respond properly to light, shutter and lens settings, but accuracy was not verified with film. Shutter is squeak-free. Brand new seals and mirror guard installed for years of trouble-free operation. Original finger grip and viewfinder cup are included.

    Very good. No major blemishes or dents, just a few small dings on the bottom and micro-scratches throughout from normal use. Bright and clean lettering on the dials. Focusing screen and viewfinder are scratch-free, with just a couple of tiny specs of dust (no effect on function). Original leatherette is in very good condition with a few small areas of discoloration on the film door. Battery door intact.
