Canon 514xl Inconsistent Speed Issue

Recommended Posts

Got a 514xl a while back and just shot one cartridge of 50D film as a test. So although the film results will tell the outcome, I wanna ask for anyone's knowledge regarding my problem.


Shot in 18fps and as I was shooting, the speed changed rapidly every now and then. Sometimes even so that the camera fully stopped(!) I made a little mark on the film to see if it advanced - which it did.

My question is, could this actually be somewhat normal? That it just needs to work harder but still gives the desired results?
