Hi! First off, I'm new with film. I have always shot on video but now I want to try film. Super8 was the obvious choice. I don't have any hands on experience with analog photography or filming but I've read a lot of theory so I'm pretty familiar with the basics.

I recently bought a Canon 1014 Auto-Zoom but since I don't have a manual I'm having a bit of trouble with some of the controls.

The control at the left red arrow is for the type of transition you want in your film. I slided it to the left, but how do you get it back to the right? The button seems to made in a way so that you can only slide it to the left, not the right.

Then the silver button at the right red arrow. I pushed it in, but there seems to be no way to return it to the original position. And I'm not absolutely sure, but I think that, since I pushed that button, the variable shutter control is working very different than originally. Now, if I turn the control from zero to close, it's clicking all the time, and I can only turn the control back to zero if I push in the 'fade-in' button. I think this is because it's set to a 'crossover' transition. But I don't know how to change this.

So basically my question is:
How do I get these two switches back to their original position?

Of if anyone knows where to find a manual for my camera (not the xls) that would be a great help to.

Thanks.

Have you tried running the camera? Things should snap back into place after running it for about 10-15 seconds.

Thanks for your reply. I don't have film yet so I was just pushing buttons without rolling the camera :rolleyes:

The buttons have snapped back after running the camera for a few seconds!

But does anyone know what the function of the silver button is?

It's the lap dissolve cancellation button.

A friendly recommendation to steer clear of those controls - they have been known to jam permanently, (camera is 25+ years old and newer carts currently suffer from increased film jamming), and you can do more flexible dissolves in post.

Hi, one of my website visitors e-mailed me the 1014 AutoZoom Electronic manual. I have just uploaded it to the manuals section of my website www.super8.no/manuals.html

Wow, great work Bjarne! I already found your site two weeks back, but then the manual wasn't uploaded yet. Great site!

@Anthony, thank you for your help!

@Mitch, thanks for the recommendation. I was already planning to just shoot all the film just the way it is and then add al the transistions in post. I was just getting aquinted with the camera :) Sure glad it didn't permenently jam though. I won't touch those buttons again!

Btw, great to see there still is such a commited super-8 community!

Hi guys, almost 10 years later i have the exact same problem with the exact same camera, the only difference is that even after running the camera (with or without film) the button stays in the blue position.. What can i do about that? I shoot in two days..
