    There is no need to use a whole roll for the test - just a few inches would do the job. Make your test exposures then open the camera without rewinding (in the dark of course) and snip off the film from the take-up spool.

    This is the sort of thing I keep a bulk roll of 35mm for, testing cameras and chems. I also hate shooting more than a dozen frames at any one time, and I don't like having a roll of film in my camera for extended periods of time.

    My thoughts exactly! Too bad you can't get rolls of 12 exposures like you could years ago

    You can load your own or just stop and take the film out of the camera, in the dark, without rewinding, and cut it. Then load onto a reel and put in a tank, all in the dark. Then cut a new leader on the film left in the can unexposed.
