The legendary Canon AE-1 was released in 1976 and was the first camera to be controlled by a microprocessor! With shutter speeds from 2s up to 1/1000s, an ISO range from 25 to 3200 and capable of fully manual controls, this was and still is a favorite of many. And definitely earns it's status of being one of the best beginner cameras out there. 

Millions of them were made and sold with the majority sporting a chrome finish and only a small amount in a beautiful black enamel finish. Definitely not as often found!


This beautiful black example comes in great condition. We don't come across many of these in such good shape anymore. Shutters speeds and exposure meter are well within specification and new light seals were also installed.
