so the images are blank? Are you sure you loaded it correctly? If you didnt load it correctly the film sprocket holes might have not caught onto the sprocket. so you not taking any pics because the film cant advance.

well film is transparent anyways what I mean , can you tell if the film is dark like it was developed and exposed, or is it transparent and it was developed without exposure too light.

when its developed and exposed its dark and you can usually see your hand if your holding it through the negative.

when its developed and not exposed to light you can see your hand very clearly through the film.

I just read that you have an ae-1 I have that camera as well.
if you didnt load it correctly film not catching is usually a big issue for people even pros...sometimes you have to make sure its caught and in place.

cant be the cap on the lens cause you wouldnt have seen anything.

aperture? was the light meter reading too dark, also did you develop the film or did you drop it off to a 1hour photo store?
