AE1-Program Operation : LUSENET : Canon FD : One Thread

You folks were great with my first question, so I have a second. I've downloaded the AE1-P manual, but can find no explanation for the "exposure preview" button. It's separate from the depth of field preview, and seems to show no new information in the viewfinder. What does it do?

It does the same thing as depressing the shutter release half way.

There are online manuals available.

For a real manual try Craig Camera ( He sells lots of manuals.

For a copy of the manual, try Canon or Manuals2Go (he does a lots of manuals business on eBay, I forget the email address).

If I'm not too late here, I had the same dilema and just called Canon and asked for a manual. They charged me $7.00 for a photo copied manual and I received in about 2 weeks. Sorry I don't have the number, but I think I found it on their website.
