The Canon AE-1 is a 35 mm single-lens reflex (SLR) film camera for use with interchangeable lenses.
electronically controlled, electromagnet horizontal cloth focal plane shutter, with a speed range of 2 to 1/1000 second plus Bulb and flash X-sync of 1/60th second.
The AE-1 has a Canon FD breech-lock lens mount and accepts any FD or New FD (FDn) lens.
It is not compatible with Canon's later Canon EF lens mount, though adapters made by independent manufacturers can be found.
The camera will also accept Canon's earlier FL-mount lenses through the use of stop-down metering.
It supports either manual exposure control or shutter priority auto exposure.
The exposure control system consists of a needle pointing along a vertical f-stop scale on the right side of the viewfinder to indicate the readings of the built-in light meter (centre-weighted with a silicon photocell).
The viewfinder used by the AE-1 is Canon's standard split image rangefinder with microprism collar focusing aids.
