I have recently purchased a Canon Sure Shot AF-7 which appears to be in excellent condition. However, when I do not have film in it the shutter, flash etc. works perfectly well but after loading the film the camera does not allow me to take more than 1 picture. Although after some experimenting I have discovered that I can take 1 picture, take the batteries out, put the batteries back in and then take another picture. I am unsure if this could be an issue with the batteries as the recommended batteries are AA Ni-cd batteries (not very common anymore) but I am using 2 AA rechargeable batteries.
Any idea what could be giving me this problem?
