I once read on a responsible forum (maybe this one) that the AE-1 was more reliable and less prone to die than the more complex AE-1 PROGRAM. True? I bought a cheap AE-1 PROGRAM and when I press the shutter lightly the viewfinder exposure information reads properly, but when the shutter button is further pressed, instead of taking the exposure, the viewfinder leds just turn off and the camera dies. $10 is not much to lose, especially now that I have a 'parts' camera, but comments might interesting to glean from. Thanks.
