Canon 814 autozoom

4. Film use can be monitored on the rear of the camera in feet. When the film reaches the end of its length, the motor will make a distinctly different noise. Insert a new film cartridge.

5. The camera is turned off when the dial switch indicates OFF.” The camera is turned on in the run position when the dial switch indicates “R” The camera is turned on and in the constantly running position when the dial switch indicates “RCRL”.
