Canon FT Classic Japanese SLR Camera
Has a FD Tokina 35-70mm Zoom a few spots of mould but will still work
Untested with a film but looks to be a good user
FT is arguably the flagship model of the entire FL-Mount family and is packed with features. Perhaps the most noticeable fixture on the front apart from the lens is the beautiful multipurpose lever located under the “FT” badge. When pushed towards the lens, the lever functions as a depth of field preview button which can then be locked into place by sliding the switch at its base to the “L” position (note that depth of field preview can also be activated on the lens itself rotating the first ring after the mount lock from “A” to “M”). When pushed in the other direction, the lever becomes a self-timer. On the other side of the lens mount is a mirror lock-up switch and a flash sync socket underneath.
On the user’s left-hand side of the camera is circular compartment for the battery which powers the FT’s metering system. Adjacent to it on the top plate is the film rewind knob with a “check battery” switch at its base. On the other side of the cold shoe above the viewfinder is a dial that sets both film speed (ISO 25 to 1600) and shutter speed (1-1/1000 seconds, Bulb, and X: a flash sync speed of 1/60). Next to the dial is the shutter button with threaded socket for a cable release and a shutter lock switch at its base. On the very right of the top plate is the film advance lever with a frame counter above it. On the bottom plate is the film rewind release button, a standard tripod socket, and the release switch for the film door.
