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.

Classic multi-mode manual focus SLR
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.

    Posted by Trevor Butler on 27th Jul 2023

    Just excellent. I couldn't gotten a better camera to introduce me to film cameras, nor a better site to get one in such an excellent condition.

    This product shipped a few hours after I ordered it. I'm not sure if that's standard for this company, but I very much appreciated it. I got it within a few days, and it was in very good condition, as promised. Extremely professional company! I plan to use y'all a lot more in the future!

    Small business, big help

    Posted by Joe G. on 17th Oct 2015

    I ordered this camera about a month ago and received it just as it was described, but accidentally received the incorrect lens. I addressed this and was replied to promptly. They helped me completely without any difficulty, no run around or any kind of trouble. For a smaller business they work really hard to keep their customers satisfied even if they are all the way out in Texas. I gave four stars because the lens adjustment was a little stiff, and because of the mixup, but I fixed it and they fixed the mixup asap. Good company, good people.

    This was a great purchase. I'm so glad that it was actually legit. A lot of these old film cameras don't usually work especially if you get ten off some website but this one was in great condition, definitely glad I used this website.

    Quality Product at a Great Price

    Posted by Unknown on 10th Feb 2015

    I love this camera. It is mechanically sound, as advertized. The light meter works. The lens was a little dirty but cleaned up well. I've taken some great shots with it so far. I'm very happy. Overall Experience 1-5 Stars: **** Ease of transaction: ***** Shipping time: **** Shipment Tracking/Communication: ** Product Quality: ***** Product Information on site: *****
