Canon A1 (wrap around) by Yukio Miyamoto

£ 49.00

Canon A1 by Yukio Miyamoto

Launched in April 1978 the A1 was the first 35mm SLR to deliver electronic control through full autoexposure or shutter priority or aperture priority, manually stopped down shutter or full manual control. It triggered a frenzy of competitive innovation among the Japanese manufacturers that swamped European camera manufacture. It could be said the A1 ultimately delivered the dominant position Japanese firms hold in the digital image market to this day. The camera is rendered in 3D by Yukio at extraordinarily high resolution and reproduced at a combination of 720-1440dpi in full CMYK colour.

Our t-shirts are unique for being wholly made with CoolMax freshFX. CoolMax is a patented fibre designed to wick perspiration and accelerate moisture evaporation, keeping wearers cooler and drier. This wicking feature of the fabric is made possible by micro channels engineered into the profile of and surface of the fibre. These channels are cleverly dimensioned to exploit the surface tension and capillary action of water. Being physical properties of the fibre, these channels endure and do not significantly diminish with wear or washing.

Antimicrobial (freshFX) treatment stops the propagation of odour producing bacteria. This is achieved by embedding silver salt crystals into the structure of the fibre. FreshFX treatment like the wicking is permanent and does not leach out with everyday use. These characteristics ensure the shirts remain cool, dry and odour free regardless of what you might do in them. Performance of the fabric is guaranteed through a certified and monitored manufacturing process.
