Canon AE-1 Program 35mm Film SLR Camera with Canon FD 50mm F/1.4 Standard Fast Prime Lens, Lens Cap, Manual, and Battery
Here we have a fully functional Canon AE-1 Program camera with Canon FD 50mm F/1.4 standard fast prime lens and lens cap. The camera also comes with its original manual and a fresh battery.
This AE-1 Program is fully operational, and ready to produce another lifetime of fantastic photos.
Cosmetically nice with minor scratches and signs of use, it is mechanically perfect and everything functions as it should. The film compartment, pressure plate, mirror box, battery compartment, focusing screen, pentaprism, and viewfinder are all clean. The dials, knobs, and levers all actuate exactly as they should. The light meter is fully functional, and all shutter speeds are accurate.
The lens is similarly excellent, with no damage or mechanical issues. The glass elements are free of fungus, balsam separation, cleaning marks, scratches, or other optical aberrations. The aperture blades are oil free and actuate beautifully. The focus ring spins with nice weight, and the aperture ring clicks with mechanical precision.
This is one of Canon's very best manual focus lenses, with a super fast maximum aperture of F/1.4. This lens will produce amazing low-light images, and allow for easy shooting of street photography or similar styles of photography in which available light is the norm. Stop the lens down and it becomes incredibly crips and sharp.
The AE-1 Program is based on the previous AE-1, but it adds the ability to shoot in Program mode, a huge advantage over the older machine. It's a perfect choice for anyone, from the new student to the advanced photographer. It can do everything any shooter will ask of it.
