More Canon gear ... 5 at my thrift store and it's like brand new.
Cool brown case and it had the typical AE-1 "squeak", but I fixed that easily ... xpost


Nice catch and great job getting it back in service. I didn't realize they made these cases for these cameras!

Myself,I first care that it all functions as intended then I look for a keeper version.

yeah, pretty much. But I've already gotten some pretty nice deals because of marks (big and small) that wouldn't affect function in any way. I think I care much more about those in lenses than in bodies.

I agree since lenses will more directly influence your results and they also hold their value better.

Yeah, I have never seen one like this, brown with black piping, burgundy brown felt interior.

It's marked on the bottom of the wrap around cover " AE 1 ** ", then below "MADE IN TAIWAN", then "R.O.C. (A)* ...

* = a circle A
** = unreadable due to crackling, maybe " 75 " ???

I think I may have one very similar looking case - but much older camera, and I attribute the excellent condition of the camera because of it. I would definitely like to get some of this type of cases for some of my other cameras too.

I do not think that I have shown this one ... a light weight at only 767g according to my kitchen scale.

Merci Les for the link ... had not seen that page.

Took me a minute (or two) to figure a few things out. It's really full of quirks for a brick ...

Thanks ... I don't know if you noticed, but the camera came with the original cover for the hot shoe ! I am wondering if it was ever been used ...

OT: in the last Radcliffe movie, Horns, I've seen her girlfriend using a black Pentax camera, I assume it's a ME but I'm not that sure, anybody have a shot of the movie?

Don't know where you live, but I have many duplicates I need to trade away. Nearly all my cameras are fully serviceable, and many have been professionally serviced. Notice a Praktica IV that you have. I have two fully functioning and two that can't switch to the slow shutter speeds below 1/25.

Ok guys I completed my Pentaxian quest getting the last camera I didn't have:







Can anybody educate me to the Way of the LX? The accessories to have, not to have, do, don't do, problems, etc...? I'm relatively ignorant regarding this camera, while I had some info about the Nikon F2 and the Canon F-1N I don't know how it compares besides the fact it's tiny and perhaps my back will be happier to drag this camera around London...BTW I heard it has been changed through its long production run, is this one supposed to be an early or late model?

Looks good! Unfortunately I don’t own a LX so I can’t help you there.

This may help with determining if you have an early or late version:
