canon ae-1 program

35mm film SLR

Canon AE-1 Program with a 50mm f/1.8 lens and some film

This is a Canon AE-1 Program film SLR that I owned for a short time. It worked great in bright light, but either the spring or the light sensor wasn't calibrated right, so taking photos in darker places always gave photos too underexposed to be useful. But other than that, it worked and I used it. I just wasn't hipster enough to continue.

Here are some of my favorite photos I've taken with this camera:

Santa Clara, November 2012, Kodak Gold 200 Nunnery, November 2012, Portra 400 Antiques, November 2012, Portra 400 Santa Clara University, November 2012, Portra 400 Barstow, November 2012, Portra 400 I-15, November 2012, Portra 400 Book Club, January 2013, Fuji Pro 400
