programA / programPLUS

General Description

This camera was derived from the superA / superPROGRAM by removing Tv mode, TTL flash metering, and the viewfinder's LCD illumination. The top shutter speed was reduced from 1/2000 to 1/1000. In every other respect, the programA / programPLUS can be used just like a superA / super PROGRAM, and it can be combined with the same accessories (grip, flas units, winder, motor drive, backs etc.).
