Scanner Files: Canon T70/50mm FD f/1.4 S.S.C.

Recently reviewed the Canon T70 and two updates followed it. I liked it for its looks and even liked some automation features others may look down upon. But the first copy did not work. I returned it as one must, but I was bummed. Thought I had let it go but when a clean copy showed up at KEH I jumped on it and secured another 50mm FD f/1.4 S.S.C.

I really hoped this copy worked and I received my answer today when the negatives came back from my local camera shop.

7Artisans 50mm f/1.1

Success!

As I mentioned in that post I really enjoyed the Tv shutter speed mode with its “smart” setting, as described in my previous post, that could be the only setting I need most of the time if it works as billed. And it does. No matter if it is bright midday sun outside or dim inside lighting the T70 adjusted accordingly. Below are samples from the first roll of Lomography 400 and here is an ongoing gallery.
