Technical Details - Canon AE-1 program 35mm Film Camera
The Canon A-1 program is a multi-mode, user-friendly and reliable camera. It was a development of the ultra-successful Canon AE-1, offering the AE-1's automation plus Program AE and Aperture Priority auto exposure modes.
The A-1 program was the first camera to use digital computing technology. It is compatible with the full line of Canon FD-mount manual focus lenses.
- Full Program AE, Shutter Priority AE, Aperture Priority AE and Manual exposure control
- Wide metering range down to as low as EV -2 (f/1.4 @ 8 sec w/ISO 100)
- Rugged construction
Compatible with vast array of Canon FD-mount lenses
The Canon AE-1 Program is one of the most popular cameras of all time, and for very good reason: it is a spectacular camera.
Picking up where the original AE-1 (1976) and A-1 (1978) left off, the AE-1 program is a highpoint in all of photography's history.
The AE-1 Program is so highly regarded because it represents a high point of camera development. The AE-1 has every feature needed for great photos, and none of the junk features that have been added in the past couple of decades that makes most modern cameras unusable unless you carry — and read — a 300-page manual.
With the AE-1 Program, load film, compose, focus, and shoot. There are no menus, no custom functions, no WB settings, no settings banks, no raw or JPG, no nothing except great pictures.
Not only is the AE-1 Program a joy to use and makes great pictures, it has a huge, bright finder. Its finder is one of the largest, clearest and brightest finders ever made. Its finder is bigger than the finder of the Canon 5D Mark II, and much bigger and brighter than the finder of the Nikon D3X. I find the AE-1 Program's finder, with the 50mm f/1.8 lens, is brighter than the D3 or D3X with a 50mm f/1.4 lens. Hold one up to each eye at the same time (vertically) and you'll be amazed.
