Originally released in 1978, the Canon A1 is an advanced level SLR 35mm film camera. 

The A-1 accepts any lens with the Canon FD breech lock mount and 

offers an electronically controlled programmed autoexposure mode. 

Canon A-1 offers, manual exposure control, shutter priority, aperture priority & Program mode, being the first of it's kind to offer all 4 of the 'PASM' exposure modes. In Program mode, instead of the photographer picking a shutter speed to freeze or blur motion and choosing a lens aperture f-stop to control depth of field(focus), the photographer can rely on the A-1's microprocessor to automatically select a compromise exposure based on light meter input.

Care Instructions

Keep it Clean: Regularly clean your camera's body and lens using a soft, lint-free cloth. Avoid harsh chemicals; a gentle lens cleaner and a blower brush should suffice for the lens and sensor.

Store Properly: When not in use, store your camera in a dry, cool place. Consider a padded camera bag to protect it from dust, moisture, and bumps. Silica gel packets can help manage humidity.

Battery Care: Remove the battery if you're not planning to use the camera for an extended period. Store the battery in a cool, dry place to extend its lifespan.

Handle with Care: Avoid exposing your camera to extreme temperatures and conditions such as rain or sand unless it is specifically designed for such environments. Use a strap to secure the camera to your body to prevent accidental drops.
