    Default Question on Bulk Tins out of Curiosity

    You know when we buy normal film in canisters, the edges of the films would have a running sequence number, presumably to help identify the frames when the film is ultimately processed.

    How does this happen in bulk rolls which come in tins, do the numbers run from 1 to 100++? Or are there simply no numbers? Or do the numbers run from 1-36 or 38 and start back at 1 again?

    Just a curious question that popped into my head and since I have not used bulk tins before, just like to hear from those who have.

    cheers!

    It's been five years since I did any film things, but yes I vaguely remember 1-40 (might have been 44) and then restarting. All this means is unless you're very exact, eventually some of your rolls will run from (say) 12, 13...40, 1, 2...9 (working on 1-40) or 12-5 (working on 1-44). Other than that, no problems.
