CANON A1 - The First Automatic Camera

 

The Canon A1 was the first automatic camera. Looking at the controls for aperture and shutter speed on the body it can be quite confusing what to do. As someone described to me - this is a camera that was set up for shutter priority and then aperture priority was shoehorned in. When you think of this it all kinda falls into place. It maybe a pioneer, but it's a mess of a camera.
