I just got a canon ae-1 from a friend and want to use it as a studio camera since I have an elan 7ne on the way for everything else. I have a 430ex and want to know it it will work at all. I know that I am going to have to use it in manual mode with studio lighting, but I wonder if it will get any ttl metering since it has more then just 1 contact on the hot shoe. It would be nice for things like since it is a damned good film camera. I know you don't deal with film on here too much, or even cameras this old, but I thank all who can give any help.
