Canon A1 Black

  • Canon A1 Black

    Late-production Canon A-1 film SLR in excellent, fully functional condition. This particular bundle comes with a scarce 1980 Winter Olympics branded Canon prime lens. 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 original and in good condition. Original finger grip is included.

    EXC. No major blemishes or dents, just minor brassing on the sides and near strap lugs and a couple of small shallow dents on the bottom - nothing that will distract from overall clean appearance. Bright and legible lettering on the dials. Focusing screen and viewfinder are pristine. Original leatherette is in very good condition. Battery door is intact.


    • Canon FD 50mm f/1.8 prime lens. Excellent functional condition, no scratches or fungus. Aperture is snappy and blades are oil-free. Focusing is smooth. The barrel of the lens shows typical wear for the age, no dents. Comes with a Tiffen UV filter and genuine Canon front cap branded with "Official camera of 1980 Winter Olympics' logo (moderate wear).
    • Colorful vintage camera strap, camera bag and body cap. Complete set of factory manuals for the camera and lens. Unused roll of film (expired, use at your own risk) and a fresh battery for the camera.
