“Nicest old School Camera I've Owned”

Written on: 09/10/2016 by premis2 (1 review written)

Got mine new in 1984 in trade for a 1973 AMC Gremlin. Best trade I've made. Still have the A-1, I kinda doubt the Gremlin is still around.

The 6 exposure modes are great. Includes stop down metering. Great addition. I love the analogue controls ( I guess I'm just old school.) The camera is still in full operational condition after 32 years of ownership. I went with a digital SLR in 2004 so this A-1 has seen little use since.

I shot tens of thousands of color slides in the 20 years of ownership. Nearly all slides perfectly exposed.

Like most A series camera from Canon, mine has developed "mirror box sqwauk" but it does not effect operation.

I wont be returning to film any time soon, but still bring thje A-1 out for a Sunday stroll once in a while.
