Canon FTb QL + FD 50 mm F/1.8 details

The Canon FTb QL is a 35mm single lens reflex camera that was loosely based on the professional Canon F1 body. Both the F1 and FTb Ql where launched at the same time in 1971. The QL was short for Quick Load, which refers to the new quick loading system implemented in the body. This did not only speed up the loading process but also made it possible to change film halfway through a roll. This makes the body a lot more versatile than its counterparts where once you load the film you are going to have to finish is before changing filmtype.

The cameras was designed for the more avid amateur photographer giving it all the newest specs of the time in a more affordable package. It has a shutter speed that goes up too 1/1000 of a second and can be fitted with the FD- as well as the FL mount lenses. There are many lenses out there for this body so whenever you want to change the lens that is fitted it is very easy to get something else.

The lens fitted to this body is a fast 50mm. The perfect all round lens suited for almost anything. Portraits, street shots and landscapes they can all be created with the 50mm. The large aperture makes sure that the camera has the possibility of creating amazing shallow depth of field as well as guaranteeing its usability in low light situations.

This camera is for anyone who wants to start shooting film and needs an entry level camera that is not going to fail them. Also because of the amount of lenses out there you will not get bored easily.
