    Dun need a film picker if your camera has the custom function.... unless of course you forget to turn it on before you do the midroll rewind. I used this custom function quite abit during my holiday and found it to be a helpful feature. I had these little round stickers to paste on the roll to indicate what exposure it was last at. Good thing for me was my camera advances film very accurately so i could just advance the film to the exact previous exposure it was at when reloading (i.e. dun need to +1 or +2).... dun need to waste any film.
