Given a Canon 35mm - FT with a FL 55mm 1:1.2 lens - rare/desirable/clunker ?
I sent a cyanotype off to my older bother in the UK recently and he liked it so much he sent our ol' grandfathers camera down to me ...
I usually shoot Medium, large or 16mm format film - so 35mm cameras are a bit of a mystery...
its a Canon FT QL - which seems pretty plain (similar in functionality to a Spotmatic) but it did come attached to a bulky fast lens - a FL 55mm 1:1.2
Is this a desirable camera ?
I naturally am very pleased with it, as it has been used also by my father throughout the years so it has that kind of sentimental value you cant buy - I hope to use it for more candid street photography where its lower profile will help - ... also looking forward to to the lower DOF as I usually shoot wides in the larger formats I cant be so selective as I could with the 1.2
just interested in finding outs its worth to others ... :)
