    Canon's high-end old EOS bodies had a feature (tech-accessible only) for reporting exposure/frame or roll count and system errors, using a proprietary computer and hot shoe connection on the service bench.

    When I purchased my EOS 1N off eBay some years ago, this test was requested by me (additional to others) after purchase to validate the seller's claim it had "shot less than 50 rolls". The bench test confirmed it was much less: 32 in fact and no unrecoverable errors to speak of.

    A cable release is not strictly necessary. Engage the self timer on EOS bodies, or for the EOS 1, 1N, 3, the 2 second self-timer with mirror lock-up in the absence of a release.

    “The photographer must determine how he wants the finished print to look before he exposes the negative.
    Before releasing the shutter, he must seek 'the flame of recognition,' a sense that the picture would reveal
    the greater mystery of things...more clearly than the eyes see."
    ~Edward Weston, 1922.
