Question about Canon EOS-AE-1 35mm SLR Camera

1 Answer

Shutter lags on first shot

The camera is in otherwise excellent condition however the first shot if I haven't used it in a couple days the shutter hangs open for several seconds. Once I run through a couple shots it seems to be fine but then the problem comes back but to a lesser degree if I don't take a picture in a while(10 min.)
Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

This seems to be a problem with the gears, it most likely just needs to be cleaned. and I would suggest taking it to a camera repair place, or sending it to one, as it can be harmful to your camera to clean it yourself!

Does the Velbon cx-300 fit most camera's


If your camera has a 1/4" thread socket on the baseplate, it can be fitted to the pan and tilt head in the illustration of this tripod provided by a Google search. The manual should give you definitive information if you are still not sure.
