Camera has been fully tested as working. Comes with 90 day warranty.
The Canon A-1 shares many of the same characteristics and body design of the beloved AE-1 and AE-1 Program with a few additions. The most noteworthy features that set this model apart are the capability to select shutter speeds from 30 Sec up to 1/1000 sec and the ability to switch between Manual, Shutter Priority, and Time Value settings.
See below for technician evaluation:
Cosmetic condition: Very Good - In well above average condition for a vintage era item. With some marks and scratches in various places throughout the body, but nothing significant. There is brassing (in a nice vintage sort of way) on the top front corners of both sides on the top plate. Viewfinder is very clean with a couple of light specs that is only cosmetic and has no impact on image results.
Film transport gears: Excellent - No shutter squeal. Advance lever moves forward and advances film smoothly.
Shutter speeds: Excellent - Tested as accurate at all speeds.
Light Meter: Excellent - Working, tested against professional meter accurate in all lighting conditions.
Hotshoe: Excellent - Tested and firing. PC sync port was also tested and firing for connecting an off-shoe flash with a cable.
Seals and foam: Mirror, door hinge seals all replaced recently with fresh new foam.
Canon 50mm f/1.8 FD Lens: Excellent - Optics are clean and clear with no marks, scratches or haze.
Our goal is to provide an accurate, detailed description for each used item that we sell. We focus on testing the most important aspects related to the functionality. Please note that with older vintage items, a slight degree of imperfection is to be expected.
