Canon 814 Auto Zoom Electronic problem
Posted 14 February 2006 - 03:04 PM
I'm entering the Straight 8 film festival and I wanted to upgrade from my old Yashica Electro 8 to a camera that would meter the 64T correctly (and have a nice lens) without spending a bundle.
Maybe I'll just make a movie about clouds.

i think single frame should be the same.
mine had same problem with batteries, i've done nothing and camera started to work... i think you can check batteries compartment.

360 x 18 / 220 = 29,45 ----> 1/30 sec.
Ian, I get the same result with the cable release. And the motorized zoom works (as well as the battery check) so it's not something quite as simple as the battery connections - but I'll double check. I'm planning on sending it out to be fixed - either to http://www.ijmincorporated.com, or to http://www.super8stuff.com
Anyone have suggestions on a good camera tech?

This is an easy fix. I have fixed this issue many times before. There are three possibilities.
Send it to Spectra or Pro 8 and pay out of your nose. Or send it to me and pay a fair amount. I have fixed over 600 Canon 814 A's D's , 1014's and others These are really very easy to work on, the problem is time and money. I purchased junk Canon Supers and Nikons to do one thing, open them up and see how they work. That and sending away for every Canon Super, Scoopic , Nikon R8, R10, Elmo 600 and 1000 series top line and a few Bauer as well. They are not cheap,$36 includes shipping for OTC in Britain. I;m in the U.S. I have a real job but my hobby (nightly) is fixing Super 8 and 16mm cameras.
Spectra and Pro8 are excellent at what they do but they have overhead. I have my shop in my home. I offer advice, or how to's for the simplest repairs.
Most folks and rightly so are too afraid of opening up their cams as they should be. But if you have the right tools, are patient and can follow directions many fixes can be done on your own.
