Well I got my Canon A-1 SLR rig back this week!! :hello1:
My son was up in Michigan and picked it up from my
older son who used it in college.I sold it to him cause I
lost my job in 2004.Now I got it back as a xmas present!!
The A-1 was the most coveted camera of the 1980`s.
I had a Canon AE-1 I used every weekend.But this was my
sisters rig and she NEVER used it.It is near pristine.I was totally
surprized when she offered it to me for sale.I drooled over it for years!
It has a Canon FD 75-200mm 1:4 zoom lens with macro-
a Canon FD 50mm 1:4 lens-Canon Speedlite 199A-Canon Power Winder-
a german made bracket for hands free use-numerous filters-
a reverse ring for macro-2x close up screw on filter etc.
Also have a nice light weight Velbon aluminum tripod.
It has all the original paperwork which she never sent in!!
Rather then prints made, I can just have images put on CD.
User guide in paper and on CD!! So you know what Ill be
doing this 4 day weekend!! Refreshing my creative memory!!!
Look-out Dahlia here I come!!! :)

Ahhh checked it out a bit.
It is color enhancement and multi exposure.
I have a ton of filters and always wanted to use
gel filters too (high end $$$ large format).
Yes they do give them a little help now!
Im going to look into it more as it is
very interesting.Thanks Jan!!

Dont be offended buddy Pidge!
I just meant that the old cameras are more difficult
and require a bit more creativity to get the same
results as automatic/digital.
I would love a digital camera but its too pricey.
Someday I will have one.
Theres always ebay or the pawn shops!! LOL.
