Canon AE-1 Program 35mm SLR Camera FD Canon Lens 50 mm 1:1.8 Lens With Black Strap
Description: This is a Canon AE-1 Program 35 mm SLR camera. The camera uses Canon's FD mount lenses. It was introduced in 1981 having the capability to set both the shutter speed and aperture automatically. It also retains full manual mode if needed. The camera comes equipped with an original Canon lens FD 50 mm 1:1.8 and has a black shoulder strap (the strap is not an original Canon strap but rather a replacement). The lens does not have a cover but has a protective Deitz UV 52 mm filter screwed on. The body of the camera is black with silver top and bottom. The camera takes a 4LR44 6V battery, which is not included in this sale. Since we did not have the battery we did not test the camera but were told by the original owner that it is in good working condition. The camera is clean inside and out and the lens appears to be clean and free of fungal growth. Please carefully review the photos presented as they are part and parcel f our description.

Distinguishing Characteristics - Most Interesting About The Piece: This is a great camera which takes beautiful photos easily. We do have one we use and we are very happy with it. All in all a nice and great camera which would make a nice addition to your collection.
Condition: The camera is clean and appears to be all there with the exception of right-hand "action grip" on the front of the camera, which is no longer there. Since the camera came without the battery, we were unable to test it, but since it came directly from the home of the previous owner and looks clean and complete, we are assuming that it is in good working condition. The body has some minor scratches especially in the silver area on the bottom of the camera, which can be seen in the photos, but these are nothing to worry about. The lens is intact, scratch free and appear to be clean. The camera comes without the necessary two 4LR44 6V battery. The strap associated with the camera is not the original Canon strap but rather a replacement. Also the lens does not have its original Canon lens cover. However, it has a protective Deitz UV 52 mm filter screwed on. Please see photos for additional condition information.
