41 years... Two different cameras... Wow!
2

Wow... How's this for a "timeline" photo!!  1979 vs 2020...
My wife was going through a closet in one of the spare rooms and found an old, ancient, camera bag from decades ago. Inside is the equally old and ancient Canon AV-1 35mm SLR (film) camera w/ Canon FD 50mm f/1.8 manual focus lens.
I got it out, and to my surprise, it still worked and the shutter clicked and advanced! No film (obviously) but it is incredible that the old thing still works...
I put it next to the brand new Nikon D3500 w/ Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G lens to see the difference 41 years makes!
Any suggestions what to do with a 41 yr old Canon AV-1 35mm SLR camera (still works)???
