Canon A-1 The Canon A-1 is an advanced level, interchangeable lens, 35 mm film, single-lens reflex (SLR) camera. It was manufactured by Canon Camera K. K. (today Canon Incorporated) in Japan from April 1978 to 1985. It used a horizontal cloth-curtain focal plane shutter with a speed range of 30 to 1/1000th second plus bulb and flash X-sync of 1/60th second. It had dimensions of 92 mm height, 141 mm width, 48 mm depth and 620 g weight. Unlike most SLRs of the time, it was available in only one color; all black. The introductory US list price for the body plus Canon FD 50 mm f/1.4 SSC lens was $625. Note that while the list price was $625, this camera generally sold for 30 to 40% which is roughly $375 to $435. The A-1 is a historically significant camera. It was the first SLR to offer an electronically controlled programmed autoexposure mode. Instead of the photographer picking a shutter speed to freeze or blur motion and choosing a lens aperture f-stop to control depth of field (focus), the A-1 had a microprocessor computer programmed to automatically select a compromise exposure from light meter input. Virtually all cameras today have some sort of program mode or modes. Features The A-1 accepts any lens with the Canon FD breech lock mount (introduced in 1971) or Canon New FD pseudo-bayonet mount (sometimes called the FDn mount, introduced 1979). This excludes all of Canon's EF bayonet mount autofocus lenses (introduced 1987). During the late 1970s and 1980s, there were approximately 55 Canon FD lenses available for purchase. They ranged from a Fisheye 7.5mm f/5.6 to an FD 800mm f/5.6 telephoto, and included lenses with maximum apertures to f/1.2 and a line of L-series lenses of exceptional quality. Accessories for the A-1 included the Canon Motor Drive MA (automatic film advance up to 5 frames per second), the Canon Databack A (sequential numbering or date stamping on the film), and the Canon Speedlight 155A (guide number 56/17 (feet/meters) at ASA/ISO 100) and Canon Speedlight 199A (guide number 98/30 (feet/meters) at ASA/ISO 100) electronic flashes. The A-1 was a battery powered (one 4LR44 or PX-28) microprocessor controlled manual focus SLR with manual exposure control or shutter priority, aperture priority or programmed autoexposure. A fifth mode is "stopped down AE," in which the aperture is closed and alterable by the photographer and the camera selects the shutter speed based on the actual light reading. This differs from aperture priority in which the aperture is not closed until a photograph is taken and the shutter speed is calculated based on the light measured through the fully open aperture. Stopped down AE is therefore useful if you are concerned about depth of field & focus or if you are concerned about the accuracy of exposure. It was the first SLR to have all four of the now standard PASM exposure modes. It had a viewfinder exposure information system using a six digit, seven segment per digit, red alphanumeric LED display on the bottom of the viewfinder to indicate the readings of the built-in centerweighted, silicon photocell light meter. The focusing screen also had Canon's standard split image rangefinder and microprism collar focusing aids. Design History Beginning with the amateur level Canon AE-1 of 1976, there was a complete overhaul of the entire Canon SLR line. The 1970s and 1980s were an era of intense competition between the major SLR brands: Canon, Nikon, Minolta, Pentax and Olympus. Between circa 1975 to 1985, there was a dramatic shift away from heavy all-metal manual mechanical camera bodies to much more compact bodies with integrated circuit (IC) electronic automation. In addition, because of rapid advances in electronics, the brands continually leap frogged each other with models having new or more automatic features, and less expensive components and assembly. The industry was trying to expand out from the saturated high-end professional market and appeal to the large mass of low-end amateur photographers itching to move up from compact automatic leaf shutter rangefinder cameras to the more "glamorous" SLR but were intimidated by the need to learn all the gritty details of operating a traditional SLR. Although Canon Camera K. K. had been making fine quality 35 mm cameras for decades, it had always been overshadowed by archrival Nippon Kokagu K. K. and their Nikon cameras. While Canonets easily led in the amateur compact fixed-lens rangefinder market (where Nikons did not compete), Canon SLRs had far less cachet than Nikon SLRs. Because of its unrivaled reputation for worksmanship, assembly quality, tight tolerances and material build, Nikon held a stranglehold on the prestigious professional SLR market that competitors could not break and amateur Nikon SLRs basked in their glow. The A-1 was the high technology standard bearer of the landmark Canon amateur level A-series SLRs. The other members of the A-series were the Canon AE-1 (released 197Canon series - day 2
There was a 'Kuching ICT fair 2008' being held on one of the building (a parking lot actually) at level 5. They show and sell a variety of computer accessories and equipment such as laptop, thumb drive, desktop, and some camera. I got my hand on 3 of canon famous model including the canon 40D. Either way, some people may argue with me but i prefer my father NIkon D60 over those 450D and 1000D, they feel light and cheap, not to mention the surface of the 1000D which is a bit to plasticky. My father didn't stop comparing his 'Nikon' camera agaisn't those canon entry level camera. I am not talking about performance here, just the 'feels' of it. The performance of both of the canon entry level offering is way better in term of focusing and easy assess to changing the ISO or WB, where as in D60, numerous button presses is require. But, it was the other way around with the 40D, overall, i already try this camera the pass 4 month and i have to say it feels really lighter than the size it shows. If i want to buy a canon camera, i would buy the 40D but i am not that picky so any camera would do really. (^^) If i would go for a canon, the 40D will be my choice, the focus response and also the large viewfinder prove more of a satisfying than either the D80 or D90. It isn't unfair to compare Nikon entry level camera agaisnt Canon Mid-range camera, but 40D is really something. I have try the D300 for a while and 40D prove to be much lighter and less gimmicky than the D300. Cheaper as well... (^^) And this is not to do a brandwars between any camera brand, i hate brandwars and this is my opinion though (^^) Taken at the Kuching ICT fair 2008, Sarawak. - Nikon D60 with kit lens on wide angle perspective.
