Perfectly imperfect film camera failures
I bought the 35mm film camera I owned in high school. My first roll of film was an interesting failure
A shot of yours truly holding the Canon AT-1, manufactured in the early 1980s. This is the camera of my youth.I recently acquired a used 35mm Canon AT-1 from eBay. I bought this particular model of camera as a result of nostalgia because it’s the one my parents gave me for photography classes in high school. The Canon AT-1 is a lesser-known manual version of the super-popular Canon AE-1. Unfortunately, the one I owned in high school was stolen decades ago . . . and while the newly acquired one is in beautiful cosmetic condition, its mechanical performance is imperfect.
There seems to be a shutter malfunction, possibly combined with a light leak.
