How We Grade Our Cameras

We restore, test, and clean all of our cameras to ensure that despite its age, your Cute Camera works as well as it would have if purchased it in 1976. This means that you’ll be able to capture your soulmate’s smile, your puppy dog’s eyes, or the sunset of your last day at college – straight out of the box. 

VERY GOOD:

A "very good" body will have minimal signs of wear and tear. Examples include slight impurities like  worn leather or metal, signs of age on the bottom plate, and dull marks. 

GOOD:

A “good” body will also look nice but have some additional potential cosmetic wear such as spots with discoloration,  worn down metal or small scratches somewhere on the body.

AVERAGE:

An “average” body will be a more severe case of cosmetic wear like more extreme discoloration or worn down metal, exterior or interior black
specs, deeper scratches, or lines in the eye prism.

Amazing Canon A-1 camera and service

The Canon A-1 is an amazing camera, especially because I got it from Cute Camera Co in excellent condition. I’ll tell you this, they do not lie! With very minimal imperfections this camera was working perfectly, the lens focus’ well and all buttons click and press well. However they did not provide the PX28 battery although it was no biggie because I just bought one on my own but they are not easy to come by just keep that in mind. So I recommend this and Cute Camera Co do an amazing job.

I love my Canon A-1!

The camera I received is in great condition + arrived promptly. The only thing I wish is that I got a battery with my camera as I had to go out searching for the right one! Overall I love it, I’m so happy with the first roll I got back after using it, too <3
