Canon FTb [270]

leave a comment »

Canon FTbAnother old camera. This is a Canon FTb, from the earl 1970’s. It is a completely manual camera, meaning that the photographer has to set both the shutter speed and the lens aperture. It has a light meter that moves a needle visible through the viewfinder. As the photographer adjust the shutter and aperture, another needle moved. A correct exposure setting was achieved when the needles lined up with each other.
