Abbie, manuals are available from John Craig at for a reasonable cost, or for download at a site called, again for a small fee. Christian Rollinger has many Canon maunals on his aptly names site for free. I've never had an A-1 and never used a winder, so I can't be of any help to you there.

You can download (free of charge) the Canon A-1 manuals at:

These are English-language manuals from 1978 and 1983... you choose which is best for you. I'd get both to compare.

Also listed on that site are manuals for T-90, AE-1P, AT- 1, and one for the F1, I'm guess it's the non-new version... and there are various user manuals for motor winders, etc.

Hope that helps. Thanks to Christian Rollinger for making the site, and for the work/ers at for this wonderful community.

The link I gave above is for online-versions of the manuals. The link for Adobe PDF vesions of the manuals is listed on that page, or here:

Just for some info, the motor drive for the A-1 doesn't rewind, only advances. You have to rewind manually.
