Question about Canon EOS-AE-1 35mm SLR Camera
The metering needle in the viewfinder does not move when i change the aperture setting on my ae1. this happens on both lenses i have for this camera and both worked fine previously. battery is brand new and the camera is in manual mode of course. the needle does move when the shutter speed is changed.
On that camera the needle is not supposed to move when the f-stop ring is turned. It should stay on whatever number it is on and you should set the ring manually to whatever the needle points to.
That camera was really not made to be easy to use in the manual mode. I guess Canon thought everyone would just use it in Auto.
