Canon T70 SLR 35mm Film Camera with Canon FD 50mm F/1.8 Fast Prime Lens - Fully Functional with Batteries


Here we have a very nice condition, fully functional Canon T70 SLR Multi Program Dual Metering System camera with an FD Canon 50mm F/1.8 fast prime lens. This camera comes with a lens cap, strap, and two new AA batteries.

The camera is fully operational and ready to produce another lifetime of fantastic photos.

The viewfinder is clean and clear, as is the focusing screen, film compartment, battery compartment, and shutter. All functions work as they should, and the camera is in great cosmetic condition. The metering and exposure system works perfectly.

The lens is in nice shape, mechanically and cosmetically. The glass is clean and free of dirt, markings, cleaning abrasions, fungus, balsam separation, and scratches. Filter threads are able to accept filters, though the front bezel is a bit scuffed. The lens mount is perfect, and the aperture blades are snappy and oil free. Aperture, and focus rings spin and click as they should, though the focus action isn't as smooth as it would be on an unused lens.

The Canon T70 is a 35mm FD-mount single-lens reflex camera introduced in April 1984 as the second in Canon's T series. The T70 begins with the concepts explored in 1983's T50, takes them further, and applies them to a more sophisticated camera. While the Program AE-only T50 is intended as a beginner's camera, the T70 gives the photographer a lot more control over the camera's operation while keeping the T-series philosophy of simplicity in control and operation intact.

Very technically advanced for its day, the T70 features numerous exposure modes and excellent dynamic metering. Motorized film loading and rewind add convenience, while compatibility with Canon's FD lens range assured fantastic glass options.

The T70 supports eight different exposure modes. These are:

-Program AE (autoexposure). In this standard mode, the camera judges the shutter speed and aperture for average photographic scenes.

-Wide Program AE. Here, the camera is biased towards choosing narrow apertures for greater depth of field, most often useful with wide-angle lenses.

-Tele Program AE. Here, the camera is biased towards choosing wider apertures for narrow depth of field and fast shutter speeds, most useful with telephoto lenses.

-Shutter-priority AE. Here, the user selects the shutter speed and the camera chooses the correct aperture.

-Programmed flash AE. This is designed to work with the Speedlite 277T dedicated flash unit.

-Electronic flash AE. For flash exposures with non-dedicated flash units.

-Manual. Here, the photographer chooses both aperture and shutter speed.

-Stopped-down AE. For use with older FL-mount lenses that do not support open-aperture metering. Also for use with macro photography attachments such as extension tubes and bellows, and for using non-Canon lenses with an adaptor. Cannot be selected with an FD lens attached.

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