    Default question on bulk film rolling

    normally do you follow the guide, roll the film based on the aligned arrows, let it rotate 360 degrees(1 round) or you roll until it cannot be fitted further, i.e until the upper arrow is at reading somewhere between 0-5.

    What is the number of shots u can take for the former and the later? assuming minimal loss at the beginning and the end of the film.

    Thanks.

    For me, I follow the arrow.

    My yield used to be 34-35 exposures, 22 rolls from 1 bulk can.

    Thanks adamgoi, seems like i fitted too much...
    Only 19 and 1/3 roll came out from the provia 100f bulk roll.

    Still thinking of a way to handle the 1/3 roll, haha... Develope it-> not worth it, throw it-> heart pain.

    seems like next time gonna be less greedy..

    P.S btw, how much roughly for a provia 400F?

    Cheers

    As for now, I suppose you can get $150 per can from Dagger.

    Thanks..
    btw, how do you all cut out the shape at the beginning of the film?

    Use marker draw the shape out, then use scissors?
    Or just anyhow cut.

    Note that the more separate rolls you do, the more film you waste, due to the leader and the end of the roll that you hook up to the spool. So try to get about 40 exp into a roll if you can ... any longer and the labs start giving you dirty looks as it's too long for their drying racks.

    The other question you had was shaping the leader, and this also sort of relates to how many shots you can get out of a roll. Instead of trying to copy the factory rolls, just nip off the corners, so that they don't have the potential to jam inside the canister when you try to pull the leader out, and you're set.

    Let me know if you have more questions ... been doing this for a while, factory rolls were too expensive for the amount of shooting I used to do (there were multiple days when I shot 15 rolls, and I was rationing myself ... and I'm not a professional who makes a living out of this )
