Canon AE-1 Program

Includes camera body and Canon 50mm f/1.8


Camera has new seals, bumper and we lubricated the shutter gear.



Released in 1981, the Canon AE-1 Program is an updated version of Canon's famously popular AE-1 camera from 1976.  The AE-1 Program has the same classic Canon design and capabilities as the original AE-1 but with some nice extra features.  Set to the eponymous 'Program' mode, the camera can automatically set both aperture and shutter speed so a user just has to focus and shoot.  Unlike it's predecessor, the AE-1 Program also accepts Canon's higher end Motor Drive MA and features user inter-changeable focusing screens.
