The AF-1 can be easily taken out for quick shooting when needed, the camera was nicknamed “Nuretemo-Pikaso” or “wet flash.” The AF-1 has a unique focusing system. The user needs to press and hold the ‘focus lock’ button with the left thumb, aim at the subject with the central box, press the shutter release button then finally release the ‘focus look’ button to activate the shutter. It’s a quirky way to click the shutter but any shooter can memorize the process with enough practice.
The AF-1 can produce clean and crisp images with the right lighting conditions. Its 35mm f/2.8 aperture Zuiko lens is sharp and wide enough to cover landscape shots and candid life stills. Colors are vivid and details are also pronounced.
We did not test the camera with film, only with battery, and all mechanics seem to work properly. Will ship with brand new battery included. You can see photos taken with this kind of camera here:
Any additional questions please ask, and we can send further photos if needed. If charged too much after checking with the post office, will always refund any additional postage paid.
