In September 2009, I was given this Canon AE-1 Program 35mm SLR with a 50mm prime lens. It’s actually the first film camera I have ever used, aside from disposable cameras in my childhood. I absolutely love the camera – it’s what started my interest in film photography. Now, I have a collection of lenses for the AE-1 and it is my “main” camera, except for when I’m in a hurry and need to shoot digital.
