If I remember correctly the AE-1 was the first in this series from Canon that actually used batteries as it had an integrated light meter. The A-1 did not.
Batteries are cheap and almost always available anywhere unless you do some real exotic travel stuff where you really stay away from power for weeks . But the argument of 35mm film vs. digital is long over . I agree though that the AE-1 is a nice camera.

Yes the AE-1 uses a battery. I change mine about once a year.
I have no moneys to buy a real DSLR, so I will continue to claim that 35mm is better.

My HOLGA doesn't use batteries at all and it's the best. So go home with your AE-1

The debate has been run at other places that actually deal with photography on a different level multiple times and 35mm film lost when compared to a 35mm digital camera. Your S5 doesn't play there for two reasons: a) sensor size and b) glass in front of the sensor. Also film is on most cases cost prohibitive when quality is an issue. Drum scans run at least $15 a picture in cheap labs. So technical quality, digital has the advantage among other things. Feel I still prefer Tri-X out of any MF body. But I digress, it's a motorcycle forum

The biggest advantage of my AE-1 over any DSLR is that nobody wants to steal it.

not to mention that some of the best films and papers for 35mm shooting is being taken out of production. soon there will be no high quality 35mm film left to buy. the only time film wins out is in medium and large format shooting, but even then, with the new digital backs coming out, it's time is numbered as well.
