Really excited about this find, picked it up for $100.
Canon 188A Flash w/ Charger
Manual, and full case.
These are all FD lenses though; a minor set back but it should be fun to learn film. Yes, I'm one of those who never shot on film
That is a lot of equipment for little expenditure. Let me know about putting a battery in, and about lubricating the mirror if the camera requires that.
Just this month I received scans and prints by North Coast Photographic Services of Kodak Portra 160 film that I shot with my Canon FT. The prints look great at 18 inches. The scans are 17 million pixels at full color.
As I calculate the matter, fine grain film is capable of a high bit rate.

Enjoy your new toy, but remember it's gonna cost you 25 to 50 cents every time you press the shutter release.
I picked up an amazingly clean 95% mint Nikkormat EL, just like one I bought when I got out of high school, along with a Nikkor medium range zoom lens for a total of $70 on Ebay last year. Back in 1974 that same approximate setup cost me about $575. Adjusted for inflation, the stuff I bought last year would have cost about $25 in 1974 money.
Nice in the display case but I'm not about to spend money and deal with the hassles of film to actually USE it!
