Good image quality
The A-1 is a great mix of auto and manual. It has excellent metering and it picks the right aperture and shutter speed automatically, just like a modern digital camera. Personally, I like focusing on my own, since I've missed more shots with auto-focus then I ever have with manual focus. Great camera, and great value.

Canon A-1 SLR Camera Body
Camera arrived well-packed and protected... no camera damage in spite of one corner of the cardboard carton being crushed. Camera appears almost new. Everything seems to function properly. I've not yet run the first roll of film through it, so can't comment yet on image quality. So far... very happy with the purchase.

From the future, back!
I received one of these as a high school graduation present, and loved it then. I evolved into a digital amateur photographer over time! I had been missing the technical challenges of manual and lightly automated photography. Similarly there is something about film photography that appeals to the kinetic doer in me. The AE-1 is a fine, no compromise camera that lets me make use of Canon's excellent and highly varied FD and FL interchangeable lens system (plus with an adapter I can attach these lenses to my Canon EOS 50D digital camera). My new AE-1, like my old one is right sized, ergonomic, easy to use and with a bright viewfinder. This camera is sturdy, reliable, maintainable, durable and versatile. Also one can find a used AE-1 at a good price, along with the award winning FD lenses. I use 14 FD lenses, one FL lens and both Canon's 199A flash and 299T flash. My photographic results are excellent! I anticipate years of service with my NEW, old AE-1.

The F-1: Canon's Best Manual Focus Film Camera
First of all, I should point out that the photo that popped up when I clicked on "review" is for the original, 1st generation Canon F-1. This is a fantastic camera, one of Canon's best of all time, but the update that Canon came out with in 1976, commonly referred to as the "F-1n" is even better. There are a few significant differences between the two. The F-1n's improvements include: a plastic tip was added to the film winder, making it a bit more ergonomic. The film winder itself has a shortened throw --- from 180 degrees to 139 degrees. The meter-on/battery-check button was spring loaded in the battery check position so as to avoid inadvertent power drain. The film ASA (now ISO) was increased from 1600 to 3200. And a memo holder was added to the back. There are probably other improvements I'm not thinking of, but suffice it to say that the F-1n represents a refinement of an outstanding camera and, really, either one that you end up with will serve you well. The easiest way to tell them apart when you're perusing the eBay listings is to look for the plastic tip on the film advance lever. It sits up proud of the top cover deck, whereas the old-style, all-metal lever, lays flat against it. I guess I should also note that the photo being displayed now is different from what it was when I originally wrote this review. This camera is the F-1n, which you can tell by looking at the film advance lever. This one has the plastic tip. My love affair with the Canon F-1 began in 1983. I had been a Canon user for about a year and was just beginning to become interested in the craft of photography. I decided that the electronic wonders, such as the A-1, which I owned at the time, were a hindrance more than advantage, so I bought a well-used, original-edition F-1 at a camera show, and from that point forward, never looked back. The Canon F-1 is a true system camera. It features interchangeable prism finders, focusing screens, motor drive options, film back options, and other items that can be useful to a pro photographer. It has a rubberized titanium shutter that is just about indestructible. Shutter speeds are all mechanical and range from 1 second to 1/2000, plus B. Flash synch is at 1/60. Because of its interchangeable finders, the F-1 has no hot-shoe for the flash, but it does have the standard PC connector. Instead of a hot shoe, Canon made various adapters that slide over the film rewind crank, which make a connection with flash contacts there. Canon made at least three different flash adapters, and one finder illuminator that use this accessory slot. The Canon F-1 is well known for the dead-on accuracy of its meter. The meter uses the classic match-needle metering method. Bring together the two needles for shutter speed and aperture and you have correct exposure. The metering system that Canon employed with the F-1 is simple, yet very useful. Only the central 12% of the viewfinder area is metered. This area is shown by a rectangle inscribed into the focusing screen. I say it is very useful because the F-1 will not respond at all to extraneous light sources unless they fall within this central rectangle. So what that means is, if you have a situation where there is a bright light source, say a reflection off a shiny surface for example, which might cause the camera to underexpose the image -- with the F-1, as long as this light source is not located within the central rectangle, it will not affect the meter. This is hugely important for folks like me who shoot slides almost exclusively -- because slides don't have the exposure latitude that print film does. In this day of dwindling use of film, the F-1 is to be treasured. It is one of the best of all time.
I like how much I paid for it. Fair for what I got. I have a different definition of sounds good on all speeds and the intensity of the shutter squeal, but over all it's cosmetically great! Very happy with the purchase
