Canon AE1


The Canon AE-1 is an interchangeable lens, 35 mm film, single-lens reflex (SLR) camera. It was manufactured by Canon Camera K. K. (today Canon Incorporated) in Japan from April 1976 to 1984. It used an electronically-controlled, electromagnet horizontal cloth focal plane shutter of rather aged design (even for the day), with a speed range of 2 to 1/1000th second plus Bulb and flash X-sync of 1/60th second. The camera body was 87 mm tall, 141 mm wide, and 48 mm deep; it weighed 590 g. Most were black with chrome trim, but some were all black.
