Used 35mm SLR film camera appears to be in excellent working order BUT HAS NOT BEEN FILM-TESTED. Cosmetic appearance is excellent, albeit very minor wear to right side and lower right corner of camera back see last photo. Inside and out camera is clean; light meter, film advance and shutter, mirror, self-timer all work well, and shutter appears to be accurate but has not been calibrated. Shutter "squeaky", as Canon's A series cameras were prone to do.Camera also has a "Bulb" setting allowing long time exposures for night time photography. Canon brand eyecup and hot shoe protector included. Vintage woven camera strap in excellent condition, has three elastic rings sewn into its inside to hold extra film canisters. Includes Canon brand lens cap and protective Hoya Skylight filter attached. Lens moves smoothly throughout entire focus range. Lens and filter are super clean and free from scratches. No fungus and no haze in the lens. Aperture works smoothly and aperture leaves are clean, free from grease which may cause them to stick, as can happen when lenses haven't been properly cared for. Motor Drive MA tested and works in both single and continuous modes.
Data Back A battery indicator light works, but cannot confirm that this item works because the camera has not been film-tested. A-1 serial #271883 50mm 1.4 lens serial #1342177 Motor Drive serial #20886.
