The Canon A-1 was the first camera with all four exposure modes — Program, Aperture-Priority, Shutter-Priority, and Manual (PASM) — that we’re so familiar with today. The built-in meter enables faster shooting in scenarios in which it might not always be simple to quickly change settings for an appropriate exposure. In other scenarios, the built-in meter simply helps with accurate exposure when without a proper light meter.

The A-1 was also an extremely well-built camera with a more durable construction than the AE-1 that would come later at a more affordable price and with slightly fewer features, but improved controls.
