The Canon AT-1 is the simplest camera in the Canon A-series of 35mm FD-mount SLR cameras (which also include the AE-1, AV-1, and AE-1 Program). The AT-1 feature match-needle metering manual exposure and manual focus powered by a 28A/4LR44 6v battery (available as an option). Also included is a Canon FD 50mm f1.8 lens.

Condition notes
Both the camera and the included Canon FD 50mm f1.8 lens are in very good cosmetic condition (see photos) and excellent working order. We film-tested this camera and it produced sharp, correctly exposed negatives.
