The Canon AE-1 Program is one of the most popular cameras of all time, and for very good reason: it is a spectacular camera.

Picking up where the original AE-1 (1976) and A-1 (1978) left off, the AE-1 program is a high point in all of photography's history.

The AE-1 Program is so highly regarded because it represents a high point of camera development. The AE-1 has every feature needed for great photos and none of the junk features that have been added in the past couple of decades that makes most modern cameras unusable unless you carry — and read — a 300-page manual.

With the AE-1 Program, load film, compose, focus, and shoot. There are no menus, no custom functions, no WB settings, no settings banks, no raw or JPG, no nothing except great pictures.

Not only is the AE-1 Program a joy to use and makes great pictures, it has a huge, bright finder. Its finder is one of the largest, clearest and brightest finders ever made. Its finder is bigger than the finder of the Canon 5D Mark II, and much bigger and brighter than the finder of the Nikon D3X. I find the AE-1 Program's finder, with the 50mm f/1.8 lens, is brighter than the D3 or D3X with a 50mm f/1.4 lens. Hold one up to each eye at the same time (vertically) and you'll be amazed.

Exposure control is a dream. Set A on the lens and PROGRAM on the body, and just shoot. You'll see red aperture LEDs in the finder, arranged in an analog fashion one on top of the other, which is far more meaningful than the in-place digital displays of other cameras. With the AE-1 P, you can see exposure out of the corner of your eye based on the position of the lit LED (there is a custom LED for each full stop from f/1 to f/32).

Another great reason to shoot the AE-1 Program is the great range of FD lenses available inexpensively. For instance, the extraordinary FD 24mm f/1.4 L, FD 50mm f/1.2L and FD 85mm f/1.2 L sell used for tiny fractions of what today's EOS EF AF lenses cost. You can pick up this trio for less than a single new EF 24mm f/1.4 L II. FD lenses have been obsolete since the introduction of Canon's first AF EOS camera, the EOS 650, in March 1987.
