    Good suggestions. The most I can do with my small changing bag is two. The Calumet changing tent looks like a good alternative.

    But a more inportant question (and possibly a future poll question):
    Eyes open or closed using the changing bag?

    Ditto the sweat. Same problem here with my Harrison changing tent.

    Eyes closed, now that you mention it. It's gotta be some kinda reflex--I think I do it eyes closed every time--load film on reels in a changing bag, that is....

    I have a no-brand changing bag and can manage 5 rolls now, at first I struggled with #4 and #5 but now I'm quicker and less nervous with the whole thing and it seems easier.

    I'm far too impatient to do batches of 2 and 3

    Too impatient or have too much film to process

    There again is it possible to have too much film

    I learned to do this with my eyes closed, and for a long time after, even in a darkroom, I found it helps. With a changing bag it does help to keep the visual input down to help concentrate on the environment around your hands.
    I feel, therefore I photograph.

    Always closed; same in the darkroom.

    Thanks so much for all the helpful responses ... good to know I am not the only one who has this problem ...

    I might have misled everyone a little though. I am not trying to do 5 rolls at a time within the bag. I'm doing one roll, taking it out, processing it, doing the next roll, taking it out ... etc. Still getting the sweat problem!

    Anyway, will try airing the bag by turning it inside out between rolls as was suggested .... and maybe just doing 2 per session for the moment.

    Thanks again all.
