The CANON Av-1 is Canon Ae-1’s little brother. It is built in a very similar way to the legendary Canon Ae-1 but instead of being shutter priority is a fully aperture priority camera. This is actually the better type of semi-auto as it lets you decide or your depth of field (Bokeh or no Bokeh?) which is great when shooting portraits. For the rest it takes all the amazing canon lenses and is actually a little bit lighter than the AE-1. Holding the AV-1 actually feels a bit better than the Ae-1 too as it has a built in hand grip that makes it feel a bit like the A-1. When shooting this camera you get 3 settings; A, which is your aperture priority mode, B for long exposures and a mechanical back up and flash sync speed going at 1/60.
