General Comments
The Canon A1 was my first 35mm SLR, I had the AE-1 Program which meant all I had to do was focus and shoot. The camera was amazing, I wish now I had kept it. The controls were really easy to use and the pictures were the clearest sharpest images I've ever seen. The control wheel on the top of the camera allowed selection of Full Program, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority Or Full Manual.
The film advance lever worked smoothly and I could use ANY ASA Film from 12 to 3200. A 'Stop-Down' leaver allowed you to preview depth-of-field and a built-in 'Self-Timer' allowed you to get into your own pics. You could use any of the available "A" series lenses which allowed 'Automatic' Aperture control. and many different flash units for any budget or need.
A great camera!!
