I read online that there are different focusing screens for the Canon A1.

My friend and I both have an A1 but with different screens.
Mine is the one with the split image and his without.

I actually prefer his screen - without the split image.

My question is, are these 2 screens using different methods of focusing or is my friend's screen is the same as mine just without the split image?

Thanks is advance!
