Summary: A part of nostalgia. In building a film setup this Canon T70 fits the bill as my basic picture box. The wealth of information from experienced users means instead of taking chances I can follow a path with predictable results. Now the test will be can I put the digital down and enjoy the process film provides.
Summary: The Canon T-70 is an affordable camera for those who are new to the world of SLR camera's. It has a 3 modes (very good for a camera of this age) Program (Fully automatic) Program Wide (Good for landscapes and wide angle shots) Program Tele (good for portraits and close up shots. It is also good for those who want to shoot using manual settings the camera also has a shutter speed mode and if you want a full manual experience you can turn the aperture setting on the lens...
It's a nice camera and uses 2AA batteries which can be found everyehere!

Summary: The camera works fine with accurate metering. I've to use another lens FD 35-70mm zoom, which I've bought via eBay as the lens that came with the camera was broken possibly due to bad packaging and handling. It's an easy-to-use camera that can be handed over even to newbies and they'll still produce great images out of it.
Summary: I bought this to replace my T70 camera that spontaneously broke its battery latch. Camera body arrived promptly. Inserted batteries and did not get a snug closure but at least it clicked. I taped it hoping pressure from the batteries wouldn't break the catch like my own camera did. A little stiff, the camera operated fine after 2 or 3 images. Nothing wrong with prints. I accidentally used up my battery life and when I tried to replace them the battery catch came apart.

Summary: Moving from my Canon FT QL after 40 years of use and into the T 70 level of help with my pictures. Just getting started so little to report. However, the body and features are comfortable and appear quite durable.
Summary: Actually, this purchase included the T-70 camera body, two lenses and a flash. The camera body is in excellent condition and appears to function properly; I have not developed the film yet and won't know of any light leaks or exposure issues until I do so. I have another fully functional T-70 camera that I bought new in 1985 but the flash has been acting up and I wanted to get a back-up as well as get the telephoto lens that came with the ebay T-70 My overall rating was...
