To avoid condensation that may ruin film emultion I would never put film back into fridge once it is out of factory sealed canister.

I keep film at room temperature and process it ASAP.

Professional films are best kept at cool temperature to keep them in their optimal state. Normal consumer films however does not required such treatments.

Because he might want to finish the other half roll later (after few days...weeks...or months...)...

But do leave the film at room temperature for about half an hour to one hour after removing from the fridge, before using it.

This is a reason why bulk rolls when opened will not last very long once it's opened because of this.

Therefore, if the films contain important shots, do finish the roll and send it for processing ASAP, otherwise, you can risk putting it back in the fridge to prolong it's lifespan.

Also, for certain films, once the shots are taken, it's advisable to send for processing soon to minimise the image from becoming degraded as the emulsion on the film is not developed and fixed yet.

Just my 1 cts worth, do correct me if I'm wrong... ;p

Hi All & Greetings Seniors,

What happens to me usually is : - if I have a roll of slide or negs half exposed - I'd roll em up and dev em anyway. Forget the unused portion. Write it off.

But if, tomorrow you have an equally important shoot session, then, just pop the mid-wound slide or neg ina dry pack or cab, and use it the next day. This of course, is easily done with the feature in Dynax 7. It allows you to rewind midways, and then load and davance to the frame you last left off.

Otherwise, I usually waste up to 15 frames or more - just to get to dev it the same day.


Regards,

CJ

That's very wasteful you know? ;)

Maybe you can try bulk loading. Then you can load less than 36 exposures per roll. I personally don't do it, but there are quite a number of people here who does who can advice you further.

Hi CK,

I understand it is undeniably wasteful to roll em up at half the exposures, but I value more the efforts and sweat then the unused frames....

Remember - I'm half crazed....

CJ

the answer is absolutely YES.
You must however note which frame you stopped at - and then reload and call up the function to advance to that frame.

Piece of nice cake I say....

but...if let say the first time you pull the leader out at point A, and 2nd time you place it on point B, will the camera still being able to advance to the frame, let's say 27? If so...if I advance to frame 25 only, can I do double exposure at the exact one frame on frame 26?

Armed with a film extractor, mid way rewind can be done with just about any camera.
Even for a compact camera?

Do you all means one can shoot 10 of the 36 negatives in a film, then take out, next time continue from the 11th negative?

Safer to continue from the 12th frame. If you have a way to cap the compact camera, it's doable. For compact cameras with built-in caps, a bit more difficult.
