    it happened 1 time to me ...

    u need the BLACK changing bag , a empty canister with the tape and the bulk roll kit handle ready ...

    1. put the camera, canister and handle into the bag
    2. open the camera back and tape the end of the film to the empty canister
    3. roll in the taped portion of the film into the canister manual
    4. use the handle to roll the entire film

    i'm actually quite terrified of this.

    Especially when you're on the move, have no changing bag with you and the nearest photo shop is 30 miles away. You'd could probably could use your bag, but then you'll risk exposing your film.

    My experiences tell me to use good tape to attach the film leader to the cannister end. Those 3M ones are expensive (about $3.00), but excellent. Take no risks, those images are priceless.

    I've seen TMax 100, Tmax 400, E100VS at Ruby. Velvia, Provia at CP/Fotohub.

    And yeah, get from Dagger if it saves you time.

    enjoy!

    me too, cos i use a manual camera, and i will need to manually advance the film - imagine if i try to advance it past its last frame and the thing is not tight enough.......

    It seems you are addicted to the Leica shutter button.

    Why not try clicking it WITHOUT film inside?

    That way you get the shiok feeling without the expense....

    *just trying to think out of the bulk roll*

    By the way, do you EVER get any out-of-focus shots with the rangefinder? Just curious. (Yeah I know... curiosity killed the bank account).

    He... newbie question:

    1) as i juz recently learnt, Slide films is to take pictures and develope them in slides instead of printing all the pictures out first rite? Then what u use to view the slides? using normal projector? if dun have then u guys really DIY or go n buy one expensive one?

    2) How much to process one roll of slide films to slides? possible to do it in normal photo outlets? or which is nice and cheap near west sg? And how much to print pictures from chosen slide?

    3) what are the advantages of slides fim over normal films?

    thx

    No, you can't really DIY a projector. Quality just isn't there. And at $200, it just doesn't make sense to make one. You can either use a projector or use a lightbox + loupe (magnifier) to view them. Such a combination costs $190 at Cathay Photo for a 4x5" lightbox + a VERY good Rodenstock 4x loupe.


    2) How much to process one roll of slide films to slides? possible to do it in normal photo outlets? or which is nice and cheap near west sg? And how much to print pictures from chosen slide?

    3) what are the advantages of slides fim over normal films?

    thx
    Processing costs $4.80 at RGB, normal outlets cost a little more and takes a little longer time. To print slide to print, it costs $1 per slide for 4R.

    Advantages? Slides are beautiful. To quote Phillip Greenspun of Photo.net, "Once you've seen slides on a lightbox via a good loupe, you'll quit your day job".

    Being intolerent to exposure errors, slides also make for a very good learning "tool" to master exposure.

    haha.......yes the shutter release can get VERY addictive.....i actually do that too! but i can assure you, it's more shiok to get a picture at the same time

    yes of course. i would be lying if i say i dun. maybe 1 or 2 out of a 100. No i'm not exaggerating. the percentage is that low. The focusing is very easy - u are either in focus, or u are not. it's almost binary.

    and mostly those few out of focus because i was trying to track a fast moving subject indoors in low light, or cos i forgot to focus. (initially, i think i have grown out of that)

    the 35mm also has a short focus throw - only a slight turn is needed to change focusing distance. it's literally a snap. things might be a little different with the 50mm and its shallower DOF, but if HCB can do it.....................

    the BEST way to view slides in all its original glory is a good colour corrected lightbox and a high quality loupe. preferably several high quality loupes of several different magnifications

    couldn't resist:
    (transplanted joke)

    go to a cheap hooker, who will try to solicit you by saying, "$50 and I will do anything".
    "Really? roll this few cans of bulk film for me."

    eh? not true. had the Leica in conjunction with the D30 for a while. The money went to the Coolscan IV and the balance goes into the 1Ds fund, hopefully to become a sizable amount when the 1Ds comes down to an earthly price

    Btw there's a shiny second hand 1D at Camera Workshop now, if anybody's interested. Saw it late yesterday evening so it should still be there today. Together with the 35-350mm f3.5-5.6L.

    Canon D30 that bad meh ?? So many people dream and make a lot of noise about DSLR. While some people sold the DSLR away.

    Perhaps you can write an article about Digital vs Film since you experienced both. (yeah , another flame bait)
