    Second unit on Chupacabra Terror for the SciFi Channel on some days about 10,000 feet. That's around 3000 rolls. My personal final tally on the show was around 90,000 feet.

    On some other shows the tally was much higher, but those had a and b cameras, so although they both were under my direction I had operators except when I chose to shoot with one or the other.

    Photography is not a contest to see who shoots the most rolls/sheets in q day. What matters is how many good images one gets.

    I agree. What's the most you have shot in a day?

    I am happy to get a handful of good images from a day's shooting.

    About 200 6x6 negatives at a wedding.

    Distributed between 120 and 220 rolls - I can't remember how many of each, but most likely it would have been on one of the versions of Vericolour.

    I seem to recall that it was a lot of work adding labels to all the proofs, and marking the file and roll numbers on the rebate on each of the negatives with a technical pen .

    Since all of my still shooting is personal and on my dime, it's pretty modest. I think the most is in the realm of 8 rolls of 120 or a dozen sheets of 4x5.

    Professionally, I loaded film for a concert video one time. There were 9 cameras running and either 2 or 3 loaders. I, myself, loaded something like 80,000 feet of film that day. I assume the other loaders did similarly.

    38 rolls of 35mm on a ski endurance race that went for 24 hours....mucho tired after than one. I am fairly picky now, I shoot anywhere from 2-30 exposures of 35mm, 120 or 4x5 per day on average, mostly 120, very little 35mm anymore...

    In 1974 at Elkart Lake race track I spooled and shot a 100 ft. roll of Tri-X. That was about 1400 shots on a couple of Olympus Pen F half frame cameras. Now I'm too broke to go through much film in one day. My average B&W film consumption per year has been about 40 roll of 35mm, 10 rolls of 120, and 20 rolls of 16mm (spooled from Eastman Double-X into Minolta cartridges) for my Minolta 16II.

    I don't shoot much film on a single day. Maybe 2 rolls of 120 or 2 short rolls of 35mm on a good day.
