Canon Ft QL 35mm SLR Film Camera with Canon FL 50mm F/1.8 Fast Prime Lens, Lens Cap and Battery


Here we have a Canon FT QL with Canon FL 50mm F/1.8 fast prime lens. This camera comes with a Canon lens cap. It is fully functional and ready to produce another lifetime of fantastic photos.

It comes with a new battery installed.

The camera is mechanically excellent. Everything functions as it should. The film compartment, pressure plate, mirror box, battery compartment, focusing screen, pentaprism, and viewfinder are all clean (with only minimal dust commensurate to a camera of this vintage). The dials, knobs, and levers all actuate exactly as they should. The light meter is fully functional, and all shutter speeds are accurate.

The gorgeous lens is similarly excellent. The glass elements are free of fungus, balsam separation, cleaning marks, scratches, or other optical aberrations. The aperture blades are oil free and actuate beautifully. The focus ring spins with nice weight, and the aperture ring clicks with mechanical precision. The ultra fast aperture of F/1.8 makes it a fantastic lens for low light shooting, and for producing excellent bokeh (or shallow depth of field) - perfect for portraits and subject isolation. Stopped down the lens becomes extremely sharp.

The Canon FT QL is the enthusiast level camera from the era of the F1. Similar impeccable build quality to the professional F1, it lacks some features of that professional camera while retaining much of the F1's functionality and performance.

It has a very capable shutter that works from speeds of 1/1000th of a second down to 1 second (and bulb mode). The light meter operates via a stopped-down TTL system, which enables extremely precise metering. The Quickload system works perfectly.

This camera is perfect for anyone, from the new student to the highly-advanced photographer. It can do everything any shooter will ask of it.

This camera and lens will be shipped immediately and packaged securely to ensure safe delivery.
