Canon A1 Black

  • Canon A1 Black

    A very nice, clean Canon A-1 in fully functional condition, with 50mm prime lenses and other accessories. 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 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. Light seals and mirror guard are in very good condition. Original finger grip is included.

    EXC++. No major blemishes or dents, just minor scuffs on the bottom and a touch of brassing next to strap lugs - nothing serious. Bright and clean lettering on the dials. Focusing screen and viewfinder are bright with just a couple of tiny specs of dust (will not affect function). Original leatherette is in excellent condition. Battery door is intact.


    • Canon FD 50mm f/1.8 prime lens. EXC++ condition, no scratches or fungus. Aperture is snappy and blades are oil-free. Focusing is smooth. The barrel of the lens shows minimal wear, no dents. Comes with original Canon front cap featuring 1980 Winter Olympics logo and a Hoya Skylight filter.
    • FREE BONUS: Vivitar 2x teleconverter, with both caps and dedicated case. Great condition, untested.
    • Canon camera strap, factory manual for the camera, set of spot filters in a case, roll of film (expired, use at your own risk) and a fresh battery.
