Canon AE-1 Program 35mm Manual Focus Film Camera - Lens - Flash Combo
- stock arriving soon
The Canon AE-1 Program is a 35 mm single-lens reflex camera that uses Canon's FD mount lenses. It was introduced in 1981 as the successor to the Canon AE-1, five years after that camera's introduction. The major difference was the addition of the Program AE mode first seen in the A-1. This mode sets both the shutter speed and aperture automatically-albeit with a slight bias towards the shutter speed setting. The user focuses the camera and then presses the shutter button. For those desiring more control, the AE-1's shutter priority auto-exposure and full manual modes are still available. Like the A-1, the AE-1 Program has a right-hand "action grip" on the front of the camera. It also supports the A-1's Motor Drive MA; this requires another electrical contact on the base plate. The AE-1's Power Winder A, and a new, faster Power Winder A2, are also supported. The viewfinder uses LEDs to show information to the user.
Comes with a flash as well as either a 50mm or a more flexible zoom lens Supports both automatic as well as totally manual mode Compatible with all Canon FD-mount manual focus lenses powered by one 4SR44, PX28A, A544, K28A, V34PX, 4LR44, or L544 alkaline batteries
