Canon AT-1 | 35mm Film Camera


Canon AT-1 35mm Film Camera with 50mm F1.8 Lens

Looking for your first (or second) film camera? The Canon AT-1 35mm is an amazing camera that can get you feeling comfortable with the basics of shooting film.

Still part of the A-1 fam, The Canon AT-1 is similar to the popular Canon AE-1. Let’s say they could be sisters).  This 35mm is different from its sibling because it is the only one in its family to have all manual metering and exposure. 

The Canon AT-1 hit the markets in 1976 and became incredibly popular in Japan because it turned out that many people preferred the more relaxed and manual AT-1 sister over the automatic AE-1. The Canon AT-1 and AE-1 share their parent’s same classic design and nearly all other features and both cameras can use the same accessories.

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. 


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. 


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.


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.
