Five years after the original AE-1 was introduced, Canon brought out an excellent upgraded version in 1981, known as the AE-1 Program or AE-1P in short. The major difference was the addition of the Program AE mode which sets both the shutter speed and aperture automatically.
With it is a FD 35-105mm f3.5 zoom lens. This should get me started. Now I plan to look over the manual for the camera and buy a roll of film.
I have to admit… I’m just a little bit giddy. This should be fun.
