On a vintage SLR Canon AE1, how do I change the 100 ASA to 400 ASA for the faster film.?

I tried to turn it,you know, that bigger serrated wheel around the 2-1000 numbered ring,and under the film advance lever - but the green numbers inside the little ASA box do not move at all. Is there a button I am supposed to press at the same time? I wondered if that is why the interior light meter is rather stuck or always goes up and down but lands on 28 instead of getting up to the 56 (middle) that I am aiming to hit! happy for any thoughts that might help me operate this camera with success! Thanks for your time, in advance! Thanks to Dr. Iblis THAT was what did it! A million thanks !! AA+++ I wish I could bake you a pie!! blessings to all People Helping People!!


try pulling the dial up before turning.

You have to lift the outer ring to change it. If you do not have the manual, you can find it here... http://butkus.org/chinon/canon/canon_ae- 1/canon_ae-1.htm and it will answer a lot of questions that you may have.

It is pretty clear what cameras those are. All but one are 35 mm SLR's and of them two are Canon's, one is a Nikon and the other is a Miranda. One is a small rangefinder which appears to be made by Olympus and without interchangeable lenses. You should be more interested in finding the newest version of a 35 mm SLR, like Nikon or Canon which also supports dSLR's Miranda is a dead end. No dSLR bodies can use Miranda lenses.

There is a large second-hand market in 'manual' SLRs, and models such as the Canon AE-1 and early Nikons offer ... A moderate wide-angle lens, either 35 mm or 28 mm, offers many advantages when taking pictures ofplants or other objects found in confined spaces.

    Canon 40D -- What I like... What I don't like

    I was a long time owner of the Canon 10D which I quickly outgrew. Then, I upgraded to the 20D and have been using it for the past few years. I didn't think the 30D was a big enough step forward to warrant the upgrade. Going from the 20D to the 40D is a big leap forward.Unboxing the 40D is about the same as the other two DSLRs I've owned. Manuals in both spanish and english, plus software for MAC and PC. I got the "body only" package as I already own the 28-135mm lens. That lens is just **ok.** and I really didn't want a 2nd copy. The battery is the bp511A so I can use the already charged one from my 20D. The strap is the same as the 20D. The compact flash memory is the same as well, so I didn't need to buy any new accessories to upgrade.The first thing you will notice is the big display on the back. It's very nice compared to the one on the 20D. Although, I'm constantly afraid that my titanium rimmed glasses will scratch the screen. The screen is so... 5/5 A.

    The Most Camera For Your Money

    The Canon 40D is the most camera for the money that Canon has ever provided. The highlights:- The new improvded Autofocus: Yes, it's still 9 point, and I was skeptical about how improved it would actually be, but having used in the field on several photo shoots, I was able to compare it directly to my Canon 5D, and the AF on the 40D was noticeably more accurate & sensitive to subtle differences within the Depth of Field. The new system performs especially well with my 135mm 2.0L, and my 70-200mm 2.8L IS. But this is what is advertised about it (i.e. better performance with lens w/ Maximum apertures of 2.8 and greater).- The 3.0" LCD: Once again, comparing this to my 5D, which has a 2.5" display, the color reproduction is noticeably more accurate. Initially I thought that the colors were being captured differently by the camera, but when I realized they were very similar once I looked at them on the computer, it became apparent the difference was in the display... 5/5 The Camera Eye "rfishjr" (Bowie, Maryland USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Canon EOS 40D 10.1MP Digital SLR Camera (Body Only) (Electronics) The Canon 40D is the most camera for the money that Canon has ever provided.

    Compared to the Digital Rebel...

    I own the Digital Rebel (300D) and last week I bought this Pro1 for my wife. So after a week of intensive use and testing (we are both professionnal wedding photographers) here are the pros and cons, some of them compared to the rebel:PROS:- 8 MP- L "pro" lens, really delivers crisper and sharper images than the bundled EF-S of my rebel, but I still prefer my EF 50mm f/1.4 USM- 28-200mm equivalent is everything we could ask for weddings, we usually stay in the 28-80 range anyway because of flash range limitations- the built-in flash is reliable, fast and strong- lots of functions and modes, + 2 custom settings- very small, *ideal* for a woman's hands, yet again I'm used to the rebel plus the battery grip so...- 1 compartment for CF card and battery- incredibly bright, big and clear LCD, very useful- flip over LCD panel- good battery bundled (1350 mAh versus 1100 for the rebel)- also bundled: 64MB CF,... 4/5 Abel Robineau "Professional Photographer" (Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic) - See all my reviews, May 2, 2004

    Not *quite* as good as I expected...

    I'm a fairly inexperienced camera user, and this is my second digital. My previous camera was a Canon Powershot A80, which did everything exactly as expected, and is great for the money.I waited excitedly for months to get my hands on this camera, and, as a whole, the camera is exceptional. Image quality is great. It's also very responsive, and super easy to use (for a manual cam). You just can't beat the swivel LCD screen, (super) macro mode, and 8mp resolution.There are, however, some things which should be mentioned:-High noise at ISO over 200 (camera does 50/100/200/400)-Autofocus very sluggish, making it hard to catch action shots-Made to hold with right hand, in which it fits nicely. On the left side, however, there is no "comfortable" spot to hold the camera. Not ergonomically correct. Even bizarre. I usually just "rest" it on my hand.-No AF assist light for focusing in low light/night time situations. This is... 4/5 M.

    The best of the 8 megapixel digicams

    The Powershot Pro1 is the best all-around 8 megapixel digicam. It is compact (unlike the Olympus 8080, Sony F828, and Konica Minolta A2); has a fast 28-200 lens (Olympus only goes to 140mm equivalent, Nikon doesn't allow wide angle); and allows for fine adjustment of focal length (Olympus and Nikon use a crude zoom lever that makes it difficult to zoom exactly as you want to). An additional important point is that the Powershot can actually be used in RAW mode: the Olympus, Sony, and Nikon cameras lock-up for a while after taking a picture in RAW mode (this means the camera is not usable for up to 12 seconds after a RAW picture is taken).Perhaps the closest competitor to the Powershot Pro1 is the Konica Minolta A2, but the A2 has an old lens design that lacks the resolution of the Powershot Pro1, and the A2 is much bigger, lacks the high resolution LCD screen on the Pro1, and has limited movement of its LCD screen. The A2 has a very high resolution viewfinder, but with a good... 5/5 0, May 27, 2004

    Works, but could be better . . .

    I purchased this adapter in the hopes it would allow me to use my FD glass on my EOS 5D until I could afford equivalent EF lenses. I used it with my FD 50mm f1.4, FD 135mm f2.5 SC lenses and did some experimenting with a 400mm f6.3 T-Mount lens.Here are some of my conclusions:1) The adapter's lens diameter is too small for a full frame camera like the 5D. This leads to vignetting which would be a problem if you try to use the image out to the edge. It was not as noticeable with the 135mm lens as it was with the 50mm or 400mm. Note that this may not be an issue with crop sensor cameras. I wonder if the this problem could be fixed by increasing the adapter's lens diameter.2) The experiment with the 400mm lens was to remove the adapter's lens and use it as an extension tube to improve the close focus of that particular lens.

    Mark III vs. Mark IV

    I had the Mark IV on order with Amazon since Canon's product announcement on October 20th of 2009. Since my local camera shop received the unit on Monday January 4, 2010 and Amazon still listed it as "Not Yet Received" I purchased mine from the local retailer despite the additional $464 in sales tax.I have been a Mark III shooter since June of 2007. For my professional work, my primary subject matter is live theatrical performance which includes acting as well as dancing ranging from ballet to traditional Tango to the very fast paced ballroom, specifically shooting Burn the Floor, which is just completing their Broadway run this month. Live performance shooting has many of the same elements of sports photography, except the lighting is much lower and at times more severe due to stage lighting. My Mark III performed well in most instances although I did have occasions where the autofocus did not perform as well as I had hoped. But to be fair, I cannot say with 100%... 5/5 Mark Kitaoka (Pacifica, CA United States) - See all my reviews, January 7, 2010

    A huge step up from the mk III

    (Edited to fix my poor grammar and reword a few things to be more clear)The 1D mk III was my first 1-series body. Before that I had, in reverse order, a 5D, a 20D, and 300D. Each step along the way was nicer and nicer. I couldn't imagine a better camera than my 1D mk III, but now I have it.Over time (mostly through reading about the camera) I learned that my mk III had poor autofocus. I had an early version with the defect, but also because the mk III apparently did not live up to the autofocus of the 1D mk IIn. I had the defect fixed, and my auto focus was better, but still not as good, or so I had read, as the mk IIn autofocus. I can attest that I certainly felt frustrated with the mk III autofocus on a regular basis.I haven't been to a sporting event yet, so I can't speak to that kind of focusing, but in good light with a stationary subject my gut feeling is that, yes, focusing is better in the mk IV than it was in the mk III.

    Canon hits one out of the park

    I have been a Canon shooter for a while now but seriously considered jumping to Nikon with the release of the D3. I stuck it out with my 1D3 which, despite the negative reviews, performed exceptionally well for me.When the D3S released it was all I could do to resist hitting the "buy" button. I wanted to see what the 1D4 specs looked like before I made my mind up to either stay with Canon or do like many other Canon pro body shooters and make the switch to Nikon.The 1D4 released and I liked the specs, so I bought the camera. I was one of the first in the US to get my hands on a 1D4, I received mine at the end of January when the first few bodies landed. I've been shooting with it for a month now and I can say, it's an amazing body.AF:The autofocus system is noticeably superior to the 1D3's, which was outstanding to begin with.

    Decent Entry Level Camera

    My personal background: I've owned several Point & Shoot cameras, both digital and film, as well as an old SLR back when I was in high school. I'm a decent photographer and since I bought this camera in late August (now early November) I've shot probably around 400+ frames.If you want to shoot in manual mode, this camera works wonderfully. The only downsides I've found is a tendency to under expose by about 1/3 stop and the 1 fps maximum. If you don't need high speed photography and can learn to compensate for the exposure (or take your film to a lab that does) there isn't a reason to buy any other Rebel.If you use the various auto modes (landscape, portrait, etc.) you'll find the camera works pretty well. Using these modes I can hand the camera over to a family member and expect the photo to come out reasonably well.The only serious downfall to this kit is the lens. It is about as crummy as lenses come. The photos look fine at 4x6, but if you blow them up,... 4/5 Christopher Bibbs (Detroit, MI USA) - See all my reviews, November 5, 2003

    Great Camera for Everyone!

    I bought this camera in the summer of 2003 which was when I started my photography endeavor. This camera has been awesome for everything that I have done from practice portraiture, landscape, close up, and everything that I was able to thow at it. I still constantly use this camera as it still continues to intrigue me with its abilities.Many, and I say MANY people complain online about the lense that is given in the kit. For the work that I have done, and the work that most amature to "prosumer" photographers do, you will not be so extremely dissapointed about this lense. I do have the EF 50mm f/1.8, which is awesome!The Rebel GII is also extremely light to carry around, especially when compared to older manual type SLR's. Sure, its not as light as a point and shoot but its NOT a point and shoot, its a great SLR.

    One of the best wide angle primes at a bargain price.I

    I am using this lens on a Canon 5D Mark II. I have several zoom lenses in this range, but was looking for a fast, superwide prime. The choice would be this or the Canon 14L II. This is the same as the Samyang, rebranded.After receiving the lens, I ran some tests against 16-35 2.8, and sigma 12-24, and was floored. The corner to corner sharpness of this lens is fantastic. I peaks at around 5.6, but the corners at 2.8 are better than the other 2 lenses at f11. the microcontrast and color is very good. The barrel distortion is hefty, and complex with a mustache distortion, however, often not well visible in landscape, but visible in architectural images. It is correctable using a $25 program called ptlens, and there is also a profile for acr 6.1 out there, which works great. It is an absolute bargain. I purchased a focus confirmation chip for 14 from ebay, glued it on, and I get focus confirmation too.feb 2012 updateI have had this lens along side Nikon... 5/5 K.

    Sharpest lens I ever used, but check for issues

    This is the new version with the auto-exposure chip (only for Nikon mount) and UMC coating. My impressions:Pros:-Sharp, sharp, sharp. Even at f/2.8, this lens is sharp. At its sharpest aperture, f/5.6, it's sharp corner-to-corner on an APS-C camera.-Very good build quality. Solid weighty feel, brass mount, and smooth dampened focus ring.-By far the least expensive 14mm around.-No problems with auto-exposure or focus confirmation (including the electronic rangefinder function on newer Nikon bodies)-FX or DXCons:-Cheap rear cap fits a little loose. I swapped mine with a Nikon cap.-Has significant mustache-type barrel distortion in the middle of the frame. Not a lens for architectural photography. However, this can be mostly corrected in post-processing (with the $25 software PTLens, or user-created Lightroom profiles on the net).Some considerations:-Like some other ultra wide-angle lenses, the... 4/5 J.

    Excellent Value - the best in its class

    I purchased this lens several months ago to use on my Canon 5d mark 1 camera. This is by far the sharpest, most flare-and color fringing-resistant lens in its class. I owned the Nikon 14-24mm lens and this lowly lens beats the Nikon hands down on all counts, exept vignetting (easily correctable in Photoshop) and distortion - but get a PT Lens software, which has this lens correction pre-programmed in its database and distortion becomes a non-issue.Advantages:Solidly built, operates smoothly, light (under 450 grams), much more compact than Nikon 14-24mm, incredible resolution, color balance and color fringing resistance - simply crushes Nikon 14-24mm (my personal experience and comparison and also see independent reviews on the Net), no flare, even when shooting straight into the Sun.Disadvantages:Fully manual - no auto anything, including the aperture (not an issue for this ultra-wide lens and actually is an advantge, since it greatly... 5/5 Sanity Advocate (Houston, TX United States) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Great camera, one of the best low(er)-end DSLRs on the market

    My journey with DSLRs began back in 2003 with the original Digital Rebel. DSLRs changed my photography for the better like nothing else. Five years and some 25,000 shots later, it's still going strong. Along the way I upgraded to the Canon 30D, which is a fantastic camera as well. When the 40D was announced, I decided to wait until the 50D sometime in 2009, but wanted a newer backup/second body for my photography needs. So when the XSi/450D was announced, it sounded like a perfect fit for my needs.I got it from Amazon.com three days ago, and have given it a pretty good workout since then, having shot about 650 shots under a variety of shooting conditions and with a number of different Canon and third-party lenses. The following are my impressions.The build feels very good. The camera feels wonderfully light yet well built. I'm 6ft tall with average size hands, and the camera feels good in my hand. The battery grip, to me, defeats the purpose of having... 5/5 Hyun Yu - See all my reviews, April 23, 2008

    Wonderful digital camera!

    This camera is impossible to beat at this price. I won't write a lengthy review, but, you can set this camera in fully automatic mode and hand it to a "point and shoot" person, and they will obtain fantastic results. For the amateur photographer, this has all of the bells and whistles, what I love is I can reset the camera rapidly for multiple shots of the same scene on very different settings. Married with a decent photo program on your computer, it is possible to achieve professional results.Many reviews say, get this with the stabilization lens.... I wholeheartedly agree... the extra $100 is a bargain price for this lens... It is almost (and I do say almost) like having a tripod. I set the camera for 1/10th second exposures with no support, and obtained steady pictures with it, slower than this, and the stabilization did not fully correct for any unsteadiness.We'd buy it again in a heartbeat, and I wish I could get one for everyone I know!!

    Great camera, amazing battery life, now the perfect price!

    I have had the XSi for about 3 months now and I am thouroughly impressed with it. This is my first DSLR and I was a little wary about going with a brand-new and untested camera, but I have always like Canon (I used an ELAN II in High School and I bought a SD600 about 2 years ago to take snapshots of my son). Overall, I have not been disappointed with the quality of the photos that the XSi produces. The IS lens works great and I have taken some pretty amazing photos (for me at least). I do have just a couple of issues, both good and bad, that I think those who are looking at buying this may want to know.Battery life -- Great battery life. I should say, AMAZING battery life. I have taken over 5000 photos and I have only had to charge the battery twice.Live View -- LiveView is not for beginners. It is not a replacement for your Point-and-Shoot. You can't use it in the AUTO mode (Green Square). This isn't that big of a deal for me, I prefer full manual myself, but... 4/5 J.

    Powerful Budget All-in-one

    I have used several printers, including several all-in-ones, over the years. The three main brands that I've owned include HP, Epson and Canon. They each have their own set of perks and qualities, and overall the functionality and quality of printers have steadily improved over the years. I am still slightly partial to HP printers overall, but this Canon printer definitely has many things going for it. Below are some of my main observations.**** Look and Build ****If you are looking for an all-in-one that will help you reduce the clutter in your office or home, then this one is definitely not for you. It weighs over 30 pounds and occupies a significant amount of desktop real estate. It is however a very solidly built and generally very reliable printer.**** Setup ****The setup was relatively straightforward and pain-free. However, some of the more advanced functions are a bit hard to figure out how to do. The user manual is not of much... 4/5 Dr. Bojan Tunguz (Indiana, USA) - See all my reviews, March 23, 2014

    This model does not have auto-duplex printing

    The MX472 printer, scanner, and fax work very well for light home-office use, and wireless connections to several laptops (Windows 7 and Windows 8) was a 30-second snap each, so no issues there. I didn't get to try it with an iPhone or iPad.My only and GREATEST issue is that for the price (currently close to $100) this printer does NOT support Auto-duplex printing (automatic two-sided printing). I gave it four stars instead of five because for not much more, you can get an automatic 2-sided printing model (see further below for recommended models). When first advertised, Amazon's description had a bullet point stating it had auto-duplex printing. This has fortunately been changed. "MANUAL" duplex printing is the ONLY "printer properties" option that comes up on the 472 model, so you have to go through the hassle of turning the paper around and manually re-inserting it in the bottom tray for it to print on the other side.

    Good basic transportation

    Customer Video Review Length:: 4:43 MinsCanon, HP, and Epson have all largely perfected ink jet printers and this one certainly represents the Canon brand well. It's inexpensive, easy to configure, and delivers adequate quality for those looking for a low-cost office printer with minimal print needs. It does text and graphics well but it's really not designed for photos and high volume output.The scanner has both a flatbed and auto documnent feeder but it is rather slow compared to more expensive devices. It supposedly offers duplex scanning but that option wasn't available on the Mac driver when I attempted to scan a document. Copying a document is very easy and there are separate buttons for monochrome and color copies. It also worked seamlessly with Apple's AirPrint protocol for zero configuration printing from an iPad and iPhone.The unit is rather bulky and gets bulkier when paper is loaded as it requires having a tray extended out from the printer at all times.
