Mark's Canon TX Page

1975-1979. I have two of these, both work. One was the first camera I bought at a thrift shop, the other a gift. Paid $43 for the body and 4 lenses. Was tagged at $50, and I got a senior discount. This started my decent into camera collecting insanity. They are fully manual cameras using Canon FD lenses. I replaced the light seals in the first. With an adapter I can use any of my M42 lenses on these. A little concerned about meter accuracy using hearing aid batteries, was meant for 635 mercury. I'm using hearing aid batteries in an O-ring. Maybe I'll do the mod to use 1.5v alkaline button cells. Metering is center weighted averaging. Bought light seal foam from Amazon, this was the first camera I re-sealed, was easy.
