    Remember you need an extra leader and more to fix the film end in the cassette. You will be lucky to get 2 15 exp rolls.

    I'm guessing that 12 exposure rolls are a thing of the past. Sounds like a good use for bulk loading your own. I've been sorely tempted to do that so that I'd have short rolls for testing lenses or bodies that need a quick check.

    I know. It would help if I could create a "fake leader" of some sort. Maybe somehow stick a leader made of developed or expired film to get those 2 to 3 extra shots per roll. Thinking of it - why was it ever a good idea to sacrifice so much film just for the leader!?

    Has anybody done something like that?

    The length of the leader was determined by the design of the original Leica.

    As to a fake leader remember you will have to do this in the dark. Not that easy to do.

    How to repackage 36 exposures film roll to smaller rolls?

    I've read this whole thread and I don't get it, why are you putting all this energy into re-loading 36 frame rolls... Why don't you just buy a bulk roll of 35mm and roll new cans with only about 12 frames worth of film. Keep whatever 36 frame rolls for that one time you need extra film.

    It's a big waste of your life to spend time breaking up pre packaged rolls...

    Hey DR,
    That brings back memories of my fathers camera, an Exacta.
    You could, and I did put a film cartridge on the take up side, so the film would go from one cartridge into another.
    Cut the film and you have your exposed film safely in a light tight container.
    Funny how that VERY OLD camera still has functionality that would be useful.

    I believe it was not your intention, but I find the statement a bit rude.

    It simply works for me. I like playing with the technical side of photography and currently I have a few different films in my fridge. It could take me quite some time to get 36 photos on each of them, so cutting gives me shorter turnaround time. Besides, it takes less than 5 minutes to do it, so your statement is really... nothing but rude.

    Besides, the question was not "what do you think about repackaging" but "how would you do it" .

    I don't think so. When I take the rolls out of my "repackager" and cut the film, I have maybe 5 mm of film sticking out of the canister. I could work with that under light. I just don't know what would be a suitable method which would not jam the camera or tear...

    Sorry, yes it wasn't at all my intention to be rude at all.

    If you enjoy this, then go for it, I guess it just seemed to me to be such an excess amount of energy, but if that works for you I can understand, and I do apologize I wasn't at all trying to be rude.

    Not all films are available as bulk rolls.
