Updated review: Canon AE-1 Program

Canon leapfrogged the competition with its electronically controlled AE-1 in 1976 — and again in 1981 with the AE-1 Program, which added programmed autoexposure. See my updated review here.

    If you would like, I could fix the squeal for you. Just cover shipping to Alabama. ~$20 I would be happy to do it.

      Mike, thank you for the generous offer! But I passed my AE-1 on to another collector a few months ago.

    I often think about picking one of these up and giving it a try, but I have an A-1 and I am not sure that the AE-1 Program would offer up anything the A-1 doesn’t.

      I’ve not used an A-1 to be sure, but I’ll bet you’re fully right about that.
