Canon AE-1 Chrome 35mm Camera Body Description

Details

The Canon AE-1 is a 35mm film SLR camera that has enjoyed tremendous popularity since it's original release in 1976.  The AE-1 is nothing short of a landmark camera, being one of the the first truly affordable SLR cameras to offer the benefit of AutoExposure capabilities.  The optional convenience of AE-1's Shutter Priority AE exposure mode made photographing action easier than was previously possible.  The success of the AE-1's excellent feature set and controls have secured it's place as a classic iconic photographic tool.  The AE-1 is a real treat for photography enthusiasts, collectors, and students to use; the beautiful industrial design is a delight to hold and it's manual aspects encourage deliberate thoughtful practice of the craft.

In 1981 Canon introduced a follow up, the nearly identical AE-1 Program with a few additional features.
