Canon T60

Discussion in 'Canon FD' started by brad_hutcheson, Aug 27, 1998.

  1. I just bought a T60 via eBay as a backup for my EOS, but I don't know much about it. It hasn't been delivered yet, but from what I have been able to find out from the Canon Camera Museum it looks like a fairly modern aperture priority/match needle manual camera. What I'm wondering about is the flash system. I have an aftermarket flash dedicated to A series cameras that will probably work, but I always liked the 277T, and wondered if the T series flashes would offer full dedication with it?

    <p>

    Does anyone have any experience with this camera?
     
  2. Never mind the flash question. I got the T-60 today, and the hot shoe doesn't have any dedicated contacts so I guess I'll just use my Vivitar 285HV. The only problem is that the flash is bigger than the camera. Does anyone know if this camera was actually made by Canon? It does say made in Japan on the bottom.
     
  3. The T60 was made for Canon by Cosina; it is mostly the same body as the Nikon FM10 and Olympus OM-2000, among others.
     
  4. Though I have owned my T60 for many years now (it must be 7 yrs now),
    I don't know much about the flash except that I use an Achiever 260T
    that I bought with the camara ($60). I honestly am not too familiar
    with the lingo of "A series", but I assume that this is a different
    mount for the flash.

    <p>

    Question: How much did you buy the T60 off of e-bay for? Though I
    LOVE the lightness of my T60, and it has an electronic light meter
    (with flashing red light), I am tired of having to carry my Achiever
    260T flash around. Eventhough I consider myself a beginnner, I would
    like to upgrade to a camara with a built in pop-flash.

    <p>

    I am wondering if I should keep this camara for travel (since it's so
    light) and buy a more advanced camara, or if I should sell it and buy
    a new more advanced one? I only have experience with this camara.
    What are the advantages/disadvantages of my situation? I figure if I
    can only get $50 for my camara then I should keep it considering that
    I paid a lot more than that and it's still in fantastic condition.

    <p>

    please advise.
    And if anyone has any questions about my flash experience, I would
    love to help out.
    Thanks
    Roberto
     
  5. Roberto,

    A pop-up falsh isn't much of an answer, no matter what the question
    is.

    They are low powered, they can be masked by larger lenses, and they
    are so close to the lens they can create red eye.
