Item specifics



Greetings, you are bidding on this Vintage 35mm Canon AE-1 Camera with lens. Includes Everything you see in the pictures. Camera, Lens, Case & Filter . 

Camera Specs:
The Canon AE-1 is a manual focus SLR film camera with full-manual metering that allows you to have a correct setting for a perfect image. The shutter priority metering feature of this Canon 35 mm SLR camera lets you adjust the right amount of blur and get a professional quality image. With Split-image rangefinder, this Canon film camera divides the image into two and lets you adjust the picture for better focus. The Canon AE-1 camera has Speedlite flash that gives you a bright image even in dark environment. The eye-level viewfinder of this Canon 35 mm SLR camera provides you with an accurate view of your object. The rugged construction of this Canon film camera makes it extremely durable and tough.

The AE-1 has a Canon FD breech-lock lens mount and accepts any FD or New FD (FDn) lens. It is not compatible with Canon's later Canon EF lens mount, though adapters made by independent manufacturers can be found. Original FD lenses, introduced in 1971, did not rotate in the mounting process; instead, a locking ring at the base was turned to attach the lens. This was often criticised as being slower than the bayonet mounts of competing cameras.[2] The counter argument, though, was that as the lens/body mating surfaces did not rotate, there was no wear that could affect the critical distance from lens to film plane. In 1976, in addition to the AE-1, Canon also introduced the New FD series of lenses that rotate the whole lens barrel to lock. During the late 1970s, there were approximately 40 Canon FD lenses available for purchase. They ranged from a Fisheye FD 15 mm f/2.8 SSC to a FD 800 mm f/5.6 SSC.

Accessories for the AE-1 included the Canon Winder A (motorized single frame film advance up to 2 frames per second), the Canon Databack A (sequential numbering or date stamping on the film), and the Canon Speedlite 155A (guide number 56/17 (feet/meters) at ASA 100) and Canon Speedlite 177A (guide number 83/25 (feet/meters) at ASA 100) electronic flashes.

The AE-1 was a battery powered (one 4LR44 or PX-28) microprocessor-controlled manual focus SLR. It supported either manual exposure control or shutter priority auto exposure. The exposure control system consisted of a needle pointing along a vertical f-stop scale on the right side of the viewfinder to indicate the readings of the built-in light meter (center-weighted with a silicon photocell). The viewfinder used by the AE-1 was Canon’s standard split image rangefinder with microprism collar focusing aids.
As you can see from the pics, the case is pretty much toast, but the camera itself is great! Please let me know if you have any questions and good luck!
