Canon AV-1 35mm Film SLR Camera with Promaster 80-200mm F/4.5 Zoom Lens and Battery - Fully Functional
Here we have a fully functional Canon AV-1 35mm film camera with a very nice Promaster MC Auto Zoom 80-200mm F/4.5 lens and a new battery installed. This camera is fully functional and ready to produce another lifetime of fantastic photos.
The Canon AV-1 is a part of the A-series, similar to the AE-1 and A-1. This camera shoots in aperture-priority auto-exposure mode, making it an excellent choice for people who are just starting out with SLR photography. The camera is extremely easy to use, but also capable of making exceptional photos on account of its use of the FD lens mount, which grants access to all of Canon's then-professional grade lenses.
Mechanically this lens and camera pair are perfect, and everything functions as it should. Viewfinder is clean and clear. Film compartment and battery compartment are clean and free of dirt or corrosion. Pressure plate and shutter curtain are in excellent condition. Mirror box is clean, and all knobs, dials, and switches actuate as they should.
Cosmetically there are some light scuffs and markings to the body of the camera. These can be easily seen in the photos in the listing.
The lens is in great shape with clear glass. Filter threads are unmarred, as is the lens mount. The glass elements are perfect, free of fungus, balsam separation, and scratches, and the aperture blades are snappy and oil free. The focus ring and aperture ring actuate as they should. In addition to this zoom lens, I suggest buying a standard prime lens, such as a 35mm or 50mm FD mount lens. These can be found in our lens section.
It will be shipped immediately and packaged securely to ensure safe delivery.
