    In general a roll lasts me for several days or even weeks. However when I go somewhere special --like a trip to London, I shoot lots and lots of film.

    London -- approx 25 rolls in 5 days

    Big Bend National Park -- 20 rolls 35mm in 4 days plus 8 rolls 120.

    What's the most film you ever shot in one day?

    It depends for me, a slow week only a roll or two if work is busy, or if the weather isn't too nice. When it's nice out a handful of rolls a day is average of 35mm and 120. On vacation Ive burned through double of that on some days. The last vacation I shot something like 50-60 rolls of 35mm, and 70 so rolls of 120 in about a month.

    Well, I exposed 75 sheets of 4x5 during 6 months of traveling to photograph in New Zealand...I do not think I have ever exposed more than 10 to 12 sheets of film in a day of photographing anywhere.
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    Road America......beautiful race track.

    Ahhh, something where I can (almost) be a contender, outside of tech/process questions... As a kid, I spent a few years doing hi-volume department-store portraits. We shot long-roll 70mm film, Kodak CPS (pro color neg), back when quality was important.

    My very heaviest shooting days occasionally ran into a 3rd 100-foot roll of 70mm film. So perhaps a bit over 200 feet of film (the first magazine was always a partial roll). For "equivalent rolls," let me see...we shot it as "split 70," where the frame is rotated in the manner of half-frame 35mm. I'm thinking perhaps 660 shots/roll. The negs were about the size of a 645 on 120 roll-film. So, equivalent would be roughly 80 rolls of 120 film.

    Knowing what a long, hard day this was, I'm kind of astounded at the people doing 50 rolls (and up) using hand cameras; I hope they had motor drives. (Mine was a purpose-built long-roll portrait camera, on a spring-counterbalanced tripod with casters.)

    About 20 rolls, a mix of 120 and 220, plus some digital and some 4X5. That was on a particularly enthusiastic field trip. Usually it's about half that.

    When shooting sports or action professionally (skiing for example) I would sometimes go through up to 40 rolls of 35mm 36exp in a day. Usually all velvia or provia, sometimes K25 back in the day.

    I don't think I've ever shot more than two or three rolls a day, be it 35mm or 120.

    Depends how one defines "roll" ...

    I worked for a while doing microfilm, and we were expected to shoot 4 Rolls a day, (16mm -200ft film equivalent to AGFA Copex) at 1600 to 2000 of the worlds most boring exposures to make up a roll.

    Shooting a 100 ft roll of 16mm in a movie camera is about half the film area of a 100ft 35mm Bulk roll, but at 40 frames a foot is 4000 images, that cover about 2 3/4 Minutes of action. (166 Seconds of run time at 24 Frames a second.) I have gone through 3 rolls of that in a day but with lab fees it is a bit spendy to do often.
