I just recently got a Canon AE-1 [handed down to me]. It's in fantastic shape as far as I can tell, although I'm not entirely sure how to use it. Our main problem is that we have no idea whether there is film inside. We have no instruction manual and no one to ask, eventually we'll have to take it to a camera shop to get everything figured out but I'd at least like to try on my own. Every time I take a picture [now I'm not too sure about the battery either...?] the numbers [next to the ASA] go up one. Right now I'm at six. Now that would indicate that I'm taking pictures, would it not? Does anyone have one, any helpful tips?
