Canon A-1 + Canon FD 50mm F1,8— 135 kit

€40 / week  
no deposit

The Canon A-1 (1978)

The A-1 brought the ruckus when it was introduced. Professionals were amazed at the automated features that Canon had crammed into what looks like a AE-1. Shutter and aperture priority made it so that you really just had to focus and press the shutter release. In fact, you can’t really take a full manual shot on this one, it’s that easy to use.

Purists and tea-drinkers complained about this camera bringing about the end of “the art of photography”. Let’s not get into that. 

Just like when it came out, it’s a good way to introduce new amateur photographers into taking pictures. A true no-brainer, ideal for those “analog photography” facebook folder moments.
