Condition: Good

Experience the uniqueness of analog film photography with the Canon A-1 SLR camera. It is made for use with Canon FD bayonet-mount lenses. The camera features five exposure modes, viz., shutter-priority, aperture priority, programmed AE, stopped-down AE, and AE flash, along with a manual mode. It has a TTL central emphasis averaging meter by a silicon photocell, which offers a working range of EV 2 to 18. The camera's ISO sensitivity can reach up to 12800 and shutter speed up to 1/1000th of a second. This camera incorporates a fixed eye-level pentaprism viewfinder with a split-image microprism rangefinder. To advance the film, the camera uses a multi-slot take-up spool with a single-stroke lever that has a 120° throw and a 30° stand-off. The camera also includes a self-timer with LED, frame counter, battery check, exposure lock, and exposure memory, among other features.

Optics and Focus

The Canon A-1 camera comes with five exposure modes: shutter-priority, aperture priority, stopped-down AE, AE flash, and programmed AE that automatically decides the right setting by adjusting the shutter and aperture as per the lighting condition. You may also switch to the manual mode to meter the exposure as per your requirement. The ISO of the camera can be increased to 12800, which makes it easy to work in dim lighting. This camera has an electronic focal plane shutter with a shock and noise damper mechanism to reduce the sound generated by the shutter release. The shutter speed can be increased from 30 seconds to 1/1000th of second.

Sensor and Screen

A fixed eye-level viewfinder is incorporated into this Canon film camera that offers 0.83× magnification. This viewfinder offers a screen coverage of 93.5% on the vertical axis and 95.3% on the horizontal axis. The split-image rangefinder in the viewfinder comes in handy when focusing on an object. A diopter is fixed on the eyepiece, which is adjusted to the standard -1 m. An LED screen in the viewfinder displays the shutter speed, aperture, warnings on incorrect exposure, and flash-ready indication.

Image and Video

The Canon A-1 SLR camera is made for 35mm film rolls. The number of exposed frames is shown in the frame counter. Moreover, the counter resets itself if you open the camera back. The camera has a Canon power winder A and A2 as well as the motor drive MA to automatically load the next frame. You may adjust the motor drive speed at H for a maximum of 5 frames per second, L for 3.5 frames per seconds, and S for a single frame.

Other Features

The Canon A-1 SLR has a self-timer that can delay the shutter release by up to 10 seconds. You may check the battery with the help of the dedicated button that lights up the small LED bulb. You may keep useful information, such as film speed or location of the shoot as references in the memo holder. An external flash can be connected to the camera with the hot shoe. It synchronizes the shutter with the flash at up to 1/60th of a second. The camera uses a single 6V alkaline-manganese, silver-oxide or lithium battery.
