*ITEM: CANON AV1 35mm Camera With Lens Vintage 1979 Needs Work
*YEAR: 1979 thru 1981
*MATERIAL: Cast metal
*LENS TYPE: CPC Auto Zoom 20 - 85mm, 1:35 - 45
*LENS CONDITION: I'm not a camera expert but have processed a few for sale. The lens looks good and crisp through the view port and adjusts well. The only thing I don't understand is the fish eye doesn't trigger when I took the lens off the camera and flicked the lever. There are two levers and one flicks with no results and the other is frozen in place and will not move. The camera this lens is on is all electric and nothing works without a fresh battery. I did not put a fresh batter in to test this camera and lens so both will be sold "As-Is". Definitely expect to get work done on this camera and lens.
*CONDITION: Not tested, Needs Work. This camera has to have a battery for anything to work and the battery in it is dead. I did not purchase a new one. I was told this camera will work with a new battery but with the cost of the battery plus other costs the gain would be to slim so I will advertise this camera as a parts camera with absolutely no refunds.
: The view port is crisp viewing with a few minor specs.
: When the lens was off the mirror was intacted and moved freely with my finger.
: The film winder moves freely and when pulled up unlocks the film compartment door.
: Other than that I can't say what's working and what's not working.
* Good camera for someone as a repair project if it isn't working when a new battery is installed.
*A picture that can be magnified to full screen will be sent upon request.
