Still part of the A-1 fam, The Canon AT-1 is similar to the popular Canon AE-1. Let’s say they could be sisters). This 35mm is different from its sibling because it is the only one in its family to have all manual metering and exposure.

The Canon AT-1 and AE-1 share their parent’s same classic design and nearly all other features and both cameras can use the same accessories.
