Is it safe?
I need some kind advise from CSER here.
I've loaded a B&W film into my SLR and had taken a shot from it, but, is it safe to rewind the B&W film and use it again? As I have only taken a shot from it, I am thinking to rewind it due to last min colour film is required for sunrise/set shot, and will load back the used(with the 1 shot taken)B&W film again. I heard some said that should be fine as long as the first shot is forwarded and start from the 2nd shot will be safe.
Thanks in advance everyone

it is safe. i did that before. if you want to be MORE safe, then when you load the film again, forward 2 shots, instead of one just in case there is any mis-alightment, etc.

Don't forget to close the lens with a cap or your hands, choose the highest manual shutterspeed....

and select the smallest aperture opening to be safe..

And always forward at least an extra frame, film is cheap! Your image may not, not only that, the moment won't come back......
