Canon T70 – First Thoughts

Several month back, I acquired a Canon T70 with a 200mm lens. That focal length is way outside my comfort zone so I set about trying to find an inexpensive 50mm f/1.8 lens on eBay. After a couple months of waiting and no luck online, a work friend gave me an old Canon AE-1 with a 50mm lens which has the same lens mount as the T70, so we’re good to go.

The Canon T70 works in shutter priority, manual, and a couple different program modes. I prefer to shoot in aperture priority, so this camera took a bit of getting used to. It’s quite comfortable to hold and nice and loud when the shutter fires. I was actually quite surprised at the images this camera produced. Especially since they were all shot on a roll of Rollei CN 200 film, which I never really liked. Below are a bunch of test shots.
