February 4th – Canon AE-1 Program

Canon AE-1 Program

Humble beginnings.

Like many, my first camera encounter was a Kodak Instamatic. However it wasn’t until the mid-1980’s when one of my siblings introduced me to SLR camera’s, and the Canon AE-1 Program.

The AE-1 Program was released in 1981, superseding the 6 year old AE-1. The major difference with this camera was the addition of the Program mode, which gave the camera control over shutter speed and aperture.

The AE-1 Program had several internal and external enhancements that made it more durable, or user-changeable options that made it more appealing to a growing consumer market.

Despite early enjoyment, I didn’t have the required patience for the camera, and seeing the results of kicking a footy was quicker.
