Decay – The Wild Swans

This image was taken in 2014 using a Canon A1 and Lomo Redscale Film. I was at the original gig and you can find out more about the Wild Swans HERE. I really like the Canon A1 as it has some great lenses to go with it. As for Redscale film this is nothing new its just normal film reversed in the film canister. The poster is on a wall near the Static Gallery in Liverpool and it is still there minus a few more bits due to Decay!

CANON A1 (Wiki info)

The Canon A-1 is an advanced level single-lens reflex (SLR) 35 mm film camera for use with interchangeable lenses. It was manufactured by Canon Camera K. K. (today Canon Incorporated) in Japan from April 1978 to 1985. It employs a horizontal cloth-curtain focal-plane shutter with a speed range of 30 to 1/1000 second plus bulb and flash synchronization speed of 1/60 second. It has dimensions of 92 millimetres (3.6 in) height, 141 millimetres (5.6 in) width, 48 millimetres (1.9 in) depth and 620 grams (22 oz) weight. Unlike most SLRs of the time, it was available in only one color; all black. The introductory US list price for the body plus Canon FD 50 mm f/1.4 SSC lens was $625. While the list price was $625, the camera was generally sold with a 30–40% discount (roughly $375 to $435).
