Guest's review of Canon A1

“I bought my A1 in 1982, and it was a superb choice....”

Written on: 03/01/2011

I bought my A1 in 1982, and it was a superb choice. The quality of my photos won me many a prize at our local Agricultural Show. Having my aperture and speed displayed in the viewfinder allowed me to compose without moving from the subject. Adding exchangeable lenses expanded my subject choice in natural history shots. I still use my A1, but have added a Rebel and a D60 (with Image Stabilizer on my bigger lenses) for added performance.

Hello. I still own the A1 Black from new, I refused to get rid of it even though the Digital age took over, like many, I purchased a digital camera (pocket edition) but over the years have found the downloading, sorting, filing, printing, etc a time consuming chore. The Digital is ok for immediate action when required for eg accident, proof of this or that, but I have gone back to Film, and have just purchased a Minolta Dynax 5 because of its excellent reviews. But the Canon A1 Black is a stunning and beautifully built Camera that still commands respect. Glad you still kept yours. Kind regards. Melvyn.
