Canon A-1 w/ Power Winder A (no lens)

Canon A-1 w/ Power Winder A

This is Canon's 'pro-sumer' model that represented the top of the line camera in the A Series introduced in 1978. All the mechanicals and electronics are functional. The body and lens are in excellent overall condition and show minimal signs of use, with some very minor but expected brassing on a few black-paint body edges.

The shutter speeds sound reasonably accurate at all settings to my ears, and the PC sync fires appropriately when the shutter is triggered - as does the self timer. The film and battery compartments are clean and clear, and release properly for use. Everything operates smoothly, and both the camera and winder are functional **.

The viewfinder and mirror are clear with minimal dust and no debris, and will certainly have no effect on overall functionality or the quality of your photos. Metering and exposure data display is bright and legible.

The OEM Canon Power Winder A is in excellent shape, and accepts 4 AA batteries for single or continuous frame shooting modes. It operates with Alkaline, standard Lithium, or rechargeable Lithium-Ion batteries.

The infamous 'Canon Squeal' noise prevalent on A Series cameras is slightly audible on occasion, but does not currently affect advancing the film or hinder the shutter. Repair guides are online for help with lubrication instructions.

You will receive the pictured and described camera body with strap, Canon Power Winder A, and a front body cap; as-pictured and as-described, with no other accessory items included, however I will send a new 4LR44 battery.

  • **NOTES ON FUNCTIONALITY: Fundamental testing was done on the body and winder to confirm mechanical and electrical operations, but the body and winder have not been 'film tested' nor are they offered or warranted to be 100% accurate for any measured operations or functionalities due to age and/or modern battery limitations. If your intent is to use the camera with film, it may require new light seals. Seal kits are cheap and easy for anyone to replace them on their own, and without the need for special tools.
  • NOTE: Given the current public health circumstances, I will only ship this item in 'Click-n-Ship' approved packaging with scheduled USPS carrier pickups. In this case, it will be a USPS Medium Flat Rate Priority Mail box, with fixed shipping cost to your address, and insured for the full purchase price.
