Canon A-series another camera P O R N post

  1. I had a good friend who was a binge alcoholic but finally cured himself with the help of AA.

    I am a binge camera collector, but there seems to be no Camera Collector's Anonymous :oops:

    Anyhow here are some of the fruits of my short-term gathering of some Canon A-series cameras.

    The original AE-1 was a fine camera, but my only copy won't work, but here it is

    There was also a shutter speed-priority camera called the AV-1, but it is less flexible than the others and I've never got one.

    The AE-1P that followed looks like the AE-1 with a 'P' added, but it is more different than the outward similarity suggests


    Its full name is Canon AE-1 Program, and the program capability was advanced for its day

    There was a focus confirmation version called the Canon AL1, which I have recently posted on here,

    The queen of the line, however, was the Canon A-1 which was used as a second camera (or even a first one) by many professional photographers.

    These are really nice cameras to use, if you want to shoot film and don't want or need Autofocus.

  2. You should also mention the AT-1 which is plain old match needle manual body. Personally I eschewed AF and ran with a Canon T90 when I was a student, with good eyesight, back in the 90’s and stayed with FD until the mid ‘00s. During that spell the AT-1 was a nice, basic back up.
