Short-Medium-Long... What is the result long ends film? how many on 1-36 frame?
For general 35mm use, short ends are good enough. Generally, short ends are <250 ft, and long ends are >250 ft. This is the only place I know of that sells "medium ends", and I have no idea as to the length of those.

Movie camera chew this stuff up at 90 ft a minute. most places don't bother with lengths of less than 100ft. Gravy is a end of a 1000 ft roll that is over 400ft. (the 1000ft rolls are on a three inch core generaly, while the 101 to 400ft are on a 2 inch core. 100ft rolls traditionally come on a spool, but may come on a 2 inch core.

What's the best way to get a short end or longer into a bulk loader?
I do it with a pair of rewinds (in the dark!) and some extra cores. Hitting the 100 ft mark is the tough part when blind, but rolling it a little short is OK too (you just don't know exactly when the bulk loader is going to run out.)
