    It's attached to the part of the film you just felt tearing.

    I you'reusing my Rolleiflex, it's stuck behind the pressure plate ;-)

    Nope, not behind the pressure plate. But it is a mere Yahica-Mat. :tongue:

    And no wads of paper in the film chamber. May I assume that they still put the tape at the ends of the rolls? (Well, generally.)

    My former Yashica mat 124 did the same as the Rollei.

    I agree it's a bummer.

    I now keep some elastic bands in a 135 canister in my bag, and found the Rollei 120 canisters to be VERY useful as way to securely store the exposed film even when it's HP5.

    Phew. I was considering calling for a boycott of Kodak over the missing paper ring.
