The Canon T50, introduced in March 1983 and discontinued in December 1989, was the first in Canon's new T series of 35mm single lens reflex cameras compatible with Canon's FD lens mount.
The T50 used a new shutter design. Canon's previous A series cameras used a horizontally travelling cloth shutter, while the T50 (and subsequent T series models) used a vertically travelling metal blade shutter which allowed for faster shutter speeds and higher flash X-sync speeds. Only a modest increase was seen in the T50; more would be available in subsequent cameras.
Only Program AE (Auto Exposure) mode was available on the T50, in line with its role as a simple beginner's camera. A couple of years earlier, Konica had tried a similar approach with their FP-1
This camera is in good vintage condition, mechanically tested and appears to be in working order. Comes mounted with RMC Tokina 28mm f 2.8 lens.

We do our best to thoroughly test and describe the condition of every item we sell.
