Question about Canon EOS-AE-1 35mm SLR Camera
I'm a first year photography student at Northumbria University, and I recently bought an A1 Canon from Smokey Joes in Newcastle. Anyway, every time I use this camera it goes to about 14 out of a 36 exposure film and the button stops working. The film is then not moving, the shutter button failing to work. In desperation last time I tried fiddling with the buttons to no avail. I then wound the 14 photos I took to save them, but was VERY disappointed I couldn't finish my shoot. Someone please help.

Get a dummy film and put it in the camera , make shure that the film is fully loaded on to the take up spool and test it all the way through, It sounds like the film is coming off the take up spool. I have repaired a lot of these A1's and they don't suffer from this problem. yours Tim 01689 818009..
