The release of Canon T 50 marked the final end of series A, and the commencement of the series T.
Compared to the standard appliances A, all or almost changes on T 50. The bayonet remains however the same one. The bodies of the series T will use FD lens.
The first visible change is that of material. T 50 is primarily manufactured out of polycarbonate and glass fiber. The body is thus much lighter than those of the former generation. It weighs nothing any more but 540 grams with the batteries. The general color of the plastic is gray blue. An embossing improves the catch in hand, because the plastic is slipping.
This camera is usable only in programs mode or manually with for only speed, in this case, the 1/60ème of second. It is the camera which chooses the couple speed/aperture when the program mode is selected and that the lens is positioned in A. fast speeds are privileged to avoid the blurs.
If the automatism is unbolted on the lens, speed rocks automatically at the 1/60, because there is no selector speed. Only the rotation of the ring of aperture of the lens allows an action then… very limited.
In the viewfinder, the P, in program mode starts to flicker if speed does below the 1/60. If the cuts-off of cell are overflowed, the P starts to flicker quickly. The M which flickers indicates that position A is unbolted. A small flash of lighting ignites in green when the flash Speedlite 244 T is charged.
The camerat is equipped with a 10 second self-timer, with a sound witness, and of a battery tester.
Speeds of the shutter go from 2 seconds to the 1/1000 second. These speeds are “invisible” for the user. The leaves of the shutter are out of synthetic matter, with vertical translation.
The advance of film is motorized. The loading of film is automatic, but rewinding remains manual. The position on the first exposure, during the loading of film is done by a pressure on the shutter release.
The supply is provided by two AA batteries.
T 50 is delivered with a zoom 35-70 macro f/3,5-4,5.
T 50 and its zoom were sold the same price as a AE-1 program with a 1,8/50 mm.
The customers concerned are that of the users the compact ones, who are satisfied to centre and press on a button.
