The film can be wound in one easy stroke, or several smaller strokes. The frame counter is red at 1, 20 and It isn't red at 24; 24 is silver just like all the other numbers. It's numbered at every even number starting from 4 through 38 yes, 38 ; before that, it's marked at S and 1 with dots for ever other.

AE Lock? Just press a button. Focus before locking the exposure, because it takes a contortionist to hold the AEL button while focusing. Exposure compensation is via resetting the ASA dial as needed, which of course requires taking your eye from the finder. Use the AEL button for speed. It's right-on, especially with slides. I'm impressed; shoot Velvia 50 , and it works great in Program mode. There is no Matrix or evaluative system; you have to know how to compensate and use the exposure lock.

There is no spot or heavy center-weight for backlight; just get closer and lock the meter. It is big, bright and sharp. The split-image rangefinder is very advanced. It optimizes itself for any speed lens.

It doesn't black-out with slow lenses as they do on Nikon cameras. Faster lenses won't actually show their shallower depths-of-field. The guide number at ISO for the A flash is 56' or 17 meters. At ASA 25, it's 28' or 8. You'll see red aperture LEDs in the finder, arranged in an analog fashion one on top of the other, which is far more meaningful than the in-place digital displays of other cameras.

Another great reason to shoot the AE-1 Program is the great range of FD lenses available inexpensively.

I'm usually the only one excited by these old cameras, but the AE-1 Program is such a fantastic camera, even today, that some Leica dealers, like OC Camera , have a locked shelf full of nothing but AE-1 Programs for sale. They sell a lot of them, and why not? The New FD lenses are the all-black ones as seen in the photos here, while the older FD lenses are the ugly ones with the chrome breech-lock rings. Green means go.

Battery Check: Press the black button by the rewind crank and serial number. I left my camera ON "A" position for two years in the bag, and the battery is still fine.

The real reason to turn it off "L" position is to prevent drain if something presses the shutter in your bag. Canon AE-1 Program.

Canon AE-1 Program

With the AE-1 Program, you never miss a shot due to camera hiccups. With the Canon AE-1 Program, you can think about making great pictures instead of masturbating another camera's menu system.

Pardon my language, but if someone landed from Mars and saw someone looking down into their lap while rhythmically pressing something again and again and again, what else would it look like? A man from Mars would know that no Earthling would be dumb enough to use a camera that requires seven button pushes just to recall a settings bank with more settings he recorded earlier.

What do these displays on the Canon AE-1 mean?

There is only one dial on the AE-1P, its shutter-speed and mode dial. It is easy to flip it with one fingertip. The frame counter is red at 1, 20 and It isn't red at 24; 24 is silver just like all the other numbers. It's numbered at every even number starting from 4 through 38 yes, 38 ; before that, it's marked at S and 1 with dots for ever other.

Flash is primitive. The guide number at ISO for the A flash is 56' or 17 meters. At ASA 25, it's 28' or 8. I've left it at "A" for two years, and my battery is still fine.

The only two typical weaknesses are the film-door foam rubber turning to goo, and the lubrication of the aperture control gears drying up and the AE-1 Program making scary squealing sounds as it takes a picture.

The squealing is easy for a store to fix by spraying it with more lube, but that only makes it go away for a little while. You really want to have it disassembled, cleaned and relubricated properly instead of having more lube sprayed all around to make the squeal go away long enough to sell it to you.

Even if it squeals, it still works OK, even if it takes a moment for the picture to take after you press the shutter.

Each of them is very familiar with the AE-1 Program; heck, each of these guys could repair them in their sleep. The top and bottom covers are heavy chrome-plated plastic. It looks like metal because it is, and it's as light as plastic, because it is. The covers can take quite a beating and keep on working.

What do these displays on the Canon AE-1 mean?

Program means that the AE-1 Program's onboard computer is programmed with human intelligence to select the aperture and the shutter speed for you exactly as a seasoned professional photographer would for almost every situation. That's why the P mode is now more correctly called "Professional" mode.

With a computer replicating the exact settings of seasoned professionals, but about 30 times as fast, you can shoot better, faster, more accurately and longer than any of those pros could do manually. This makes it trivial to know the shutter speed.
