This successor to the ever so popular Canon AE-1 was released in 1981. Its main goal was to offer consumers the ease of automatic exposure, which was offered by the pro-sumer A1 but for a more affordable price. The Canon AE-1 Program features manual, shutter priority & fully automatic exposure modes making it highly versatile. 

Not only does the AE-1 Program add an automatic exposure mode, some minor changes were made to the design as well. Similar to the A-1, the AE-1 Program features a little hand grip which not only improves ergonomics but also protects the battery door. And if you're familiar with the AE-1's, that's definitely a nice thing to have!


This AE-1 Program comes in very good shape with little wear. All functions were tested and everything is well within tolerance. New seals were installed. A great addition to any shooters arsenal.
