Canon A1 Black

  • Canon A1 Black

    Late-production Canon A-1 film SLR in excellent 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 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 brand new ($29 value). Original finger grip is included.

    EXC. No major blemishes or dents, just minor brassing on the sides and bottom and a couple of small scuffs on top - consistent with age and limited use. Bright and legible lettering on the dials. Focusing screen and viewfinder are dust-free. Original leatherette is in very good condition. Battery door is intact.


    • Canon FD 50mm f/1.8 prime lens. EXC condition, no scratches or fungus, just minor internal dust (normal, will not affect shooting in any way). Aperture is snappy and blades are oil-free. Focusing is smooth. The barrel of the lens shows minimal wear. Comes with genuine Canon front cap (fair shape but funcitonal) and Rolev 3+ Close-up lens.
    • Albinar ADG 2x Teleconverter lens, with both caps and original case. Clean, untested.
    • Vintage camera strap and a fresh battery for the camera.
