Taking a step back !

I had mentioned it a few weeks back that I was seriously thinking of getting a film camera and after a few initial thoughts, I finally got myself a Canon AE1 Program along with a Canon f1.4 FD Lens...

No longer in production ( for obvious reasons) the Canon AE1-Program was introduced in 1981 and has been one of the more successful cameras Canon has in its kitty !

I have bought it to click some B/W film and do more street photography... Call me strange or crazy or whatever, I am pretty happy that I got it !


  1. enjoy ...enjoy...enjoy.....look forward to seeing the prints.. :))

    some of the most pleasurable gifts are those we gift ourselves with our own hard earned money....

  2. beautiful..........one of the best canon ever produced.....good choice

  3. kuch photos generate karo

  4. All the best mr photgrapher..hope to see some great works soon!!

  5. Hope to see some more fab work from your latest purchase. I still have and use my old film cameras, only film of choice and good printers are very hard to get by now.

  6. 1981!
    I really can't leave any intelligent comment before reading up on AE1! :D

    We'll be awaiting AE1's work!

    most of my gifts are such pleasurable only :) my car, my camera, my watches, and whatever that I see around myself :) all of them remind of the effort that went into getting them and make me really happy :)

    @ Jas
    yea, 1981.... I think it will take me a while before I can talk anything intelligent about this camera and what it does... but it for sure will teach me a few basics that I am missing !
