Canon A-1 35mm SLR + A-Series Auto Winder



Categories: , ,


This has been my go-to everyday camera since I got it. It’s got all the features you’d expect in a modern camera but in the build and design of its classic age. Along with quality Canon FD glass, reliable metering in PASM modes, modular capabilities with the power winder (included), it’s got it all. The A-1 was manufactured by Canon in Japan from April 1978 to 1985. It employs a horizontal cloth-curtain focal-plane shutter with a speed range of 30 to 1/1000 second plus bulb and flash synchronization speed of 1/60 second.

Key features: Aperture-priority auto exposure, full manual control, exceptionally bright viewfinder.
Compatibility: Canon FD lenses, A-Series Auto Winder (included).
Batteries:  A544/4LR44 6V cell
Condition: Beginnings of brass patina here and there but overall good. Bottom plate is dented/bowed slightly. The internal condition is excellent, brilliant viewfinder/focusing screen.
Included: Batteries, body cap, Canon strap, and Canon A-Series Auto Winder included.
