Canon TL 35mm SLR Film Camera with Canon FD 50mm F/1.4 Fast Prime Lens


Here we have an excellent condition Canon TL with Canon FD 50mm F/1.4 fast prime lens. This camera 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 lens is similarly excellent, with no mechanical damage. 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. Cosmetically the lens is in fantastic condition with minimal wear to the paintwork.

The Canon TL is an enthusiast level camera from the era of the F1. Similar impeccable build quality to the professional F1, it lacks some of the higher end features of that professional camera while still remaining a capable and well-made camera.

It has a very capable shutter that works from speeds of 1/500th of a second down to 1 second (and bulb mode). The light meter is coupled to both the lens aperture and shutter speed dial, which enables extremely precise metering.

This camera is perfect for anyone, from the new student to the highly-advanced photographer looking to reconnect with a classic machine.

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