    I am looking for the technical name of some cameras reported today which can take for example 500 pictures from one 35mm roll ?

    Thank you,
    Umut

    For the Nikon F3 it is the Magazine Back MF4. Google Nikon MF4 for more information.

    'broken film advance mechanism' is what came to mind when "500 pictures from one 35mm roll" and "too much exposures from one roll" was asked. :D


    "500 pictures from one spool of 35mm" brings to mind 'bulk film magazine'.

    Long Roll Camera

    Edit:
    I was thinking of a long roll.
    If you think of 35mm as in type 135, I have to start thinking again...

    You can get a full 50 frames into one regular 35mm cassette if you try hard enough...

    But 500? Maybe your muscles are bigger than mine :wink:

    Some cameras can take a bulk film back, which contains a length of film from a bulk roll. 250 exposures is the usual amount, with examples for some cameras from Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Olympus, Contax, and Minolta. Nikon also offered a back which took a complete 100 foot long roll, for 750 exposures.
