Dating a canon camera

Make sure that the lens is rangefinder-coupled: those for rangefinder use are coupled (with occasional exceptions as noted above); those for other uses are not.

The Canon AE-1 is a 35mm film SLR camera with shutter-priority automatic exposure and manual override, produced by Canon in Japan and produced between 1976-1984.

By using a microprocessor, Canon was able to simplify the design, and by using a highly automated production process, they were able to keep costs low.

There is a PC socket beside the lens, and a switch on the lens barrel for X- or M-flash sync.

There is a self-timer - set by a lever on the lens barrel.

Canon made other lenses for its rangefinder cameras that are not dealt with here: a 50/0.95 lens that requires an alternative mount, and a 135/2.5 and 200mm and longer lenses used with a mirror box that turns the camera into an SLR. Its minimum aperture is f/16, with six aperture blades.

It is rigid, and finished in black and silver with a scalloped black focusing ring.

Early models had no aperture scale but used two arrows to indicate over or under exposure.

These early models also had a limited 10-200ASA range (as did the first model with the aperture scale).

Its diameter is 58.6mm, length 30.5mm, and weight 200g; it has a 55mm filter thread. This was the last rangefinder lens that Canon would release.
