    Don't drop the camera hard onto the door sill of a car. I dropped my AT-1 and now the meter doesn't work. A nice, fun camera though. Use a silver-oxide battery.

    I really enjoy my AT-1. I used to use my 50mm f/1.4 S.S.C. lens all of the time, but now I use my 35mm f/2 New most of the time when shooting 35mm film. I got the Canon power winder A2, and it is great for action shooting. Make sure to calibrate your meter (especially before shooting important slides). I took a few rolls of slides when I was first given this camera and found that my meter was slightly off (enough to ruin slides by overexposing them). Now, I get great exposures; however, I probably use my brain to calculate exposure rather than any light meter (that's what shooting hundreds of rolls of Kodachrome does to you). Have fun!
