    Hi,

    I just bought the Canon AE-1 and noticed that the self-timer light is on, constantly. It's not as bright but more soft. Even if it's on lock mode. Is this normal?

    If anyone can answer this question, I appreciate it.

    Not normal.

    Left of the shutter button is a lever (that hides the self-timer light) and you can flip that from the "L" (lock) position to the "A" (normal shooting) position, or forward to the "S" (self-timer) position. The light should be off in all positions.

    If the lever is in the "S" (self-timer) position and you wind the camera (film advance) to be ready for a shot, then press the shutter button and the self-timer light should begin blinking ... 10 seconds later it should take the shot.
