This top-of-the-line 35mm SLR was released by Canon in 1978. Not only does it have both shutter and aperture priority AE modes, it also features a fully automatic Program mode. While this makes it similar to it's nephew like the Canon AE-1 and AE-1 Program, it definitely offers quite a bit more functionality.

Coupled with a great metering system, LED read-out in the viewfinder and a wide range of beautiful FD lenses it's one of the most versatile cameras of it's time. A great user for those starting out as well as experienced shooters who want to take advantage of all its different functions.


This fully tested Canon A-1 comes with new light seals and warranty. This example is a perfect user camera and has definitely seen some use previously. Despite its cosmetic condition, this Canon A-1 was fully tested, passed all our checks and is performing perfectly. Of course new light seals were also installed.
