I’ve been searching this baby for quite a while now and most places I find would charge me quite an expensive price for a poorly maintained body. Finally I found this near mint condition Canon AE-1. Some people ask me why am I going backwards instead of forward with the latest BIG megapixel camera and all, well it’s a pretty simple answer… I’m curious and I would love to dig down deeper into the roots of photography to actually know the difference (the not so obvious ones) and go through the pain of missing shots and having to spend money on film.
The camera built is awesome, really feels tough and quite heavy for its size. It’s fully metal I think? Not sure what material was use for its “metal” areas. For a camera that was made in 1971, this condition is awesome, not to mention the metering still works. Here are some pictures of the camera I would like to share with you guys out there. Oh yea.. I’ve finally made the mode to a full frame camera… just that it’s in analog format not digital…haha
