Canon AE-1 35mm Film Camera

$75.00

If you haven’t guessed yet, the camera is the Canon AE-1, which stands for Auto Exposure One, and is now one of the most popular cameras with which many have learned the basics of photography. It was my first real camera, and was the only camera I used for the first five years of my photographic education. As my skill set improved and my curiosity was piqued, I gradually moved away from the AE-1 in favor of other, more esoteric cameras—medium format and large format—and eventually digital.
