Canon AV-1 | 35mm Film Camera

How We Grade Our Cameras


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.

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

Ready to take some cool, artistic shots with a great film camera? This Canon AV-1 35mm may be the camera for you! The Canon AV-1 35mm vintage camera captures artsy shots during those special moments with your honey, your pet, or just you enjoying a sunset. 

This camera allows you to take your shots in “A” mode (aperture mode) which gives you control of the aperture and ISO, while the camera automatically adjusts the shutter speed to match, which gives you your best shot. It’s vintage magic!

This vintage Canon AV-1 camera can capture your partner's smile at just the right moment, the warm soft glow of the sun going down, or a cute animal you meet out in nature (sometimes with more ease than the ever-popular Canon AE-1 that only offers shutter-priority mode). 

With Aperture Mode, you are able to create beautifully artistic shots because you have more control over the depth of field effects. The image quality improves and so do your skills as an epic film photographer!

When it comes to the Canon AV-1 35mm film camera, you can’t go wrong. Don't forget to put on a camera strap before you walk out the door! (PS we sell straps too!)

By the way, protect your camera for 1-2 years with our protection plan. We cover all boo boos at no cost to you.
