It sounds like you've switched over to Active Camera in your Composition window.

You may need to switch the Composition viewport window to the camera you wish to use. Do this by selecting the camera in the dropdown menu at the bottom of the Composition window.

Hope this helps!

Just move the camera to the top of the composition. The 1st camera is the one Ae will render.
