Supposedly the reasoning for this is that if you accidentally open the back of the camera, only a couple of shots are ruined, it makes sense with a completely motorized camera.
    Huh? Never seen my 1V do this - and it's obvious from the rewind at the end that it isn't doing this either.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    I'm pretty sure that's how disposable cameras are wound too. Saves the photofinishers time. It always made sense to me in any case.

    neither does my elan, but most rebels definitely do.

    It is one of the "features" of the Canon EOS rebels. Loading the film results in the camera winding to the end, and each shot counts down.

    For the record: I bought a 100ft roll and tried it.
    1. the numbering starts at 1, goes up to 43 and restarts.
    2. the roll is wound on a spool (bobbin-core), not a core. My Watson-style loader did not have a problem with this.
    3. the edge markings look as if they have been made by Fuji.

    A side-by-side check against fresh Fuji Acros left no doubt that this is Acros.

    Could you tell me where you bought it from? Is there a European stockist?

    While there is no absolute way to prove this outside of FS - the dev times are exactly the same, the film looks exactly the same, the markers look exactly the same. Walks like a duck.

    Incredible value for what it returns.

    I wish that other companies would use the spool rather then the core, would make it easier to switch films in a bulk loader.

    a metal spool is the standard way that 35mm movie film is packed on 100 ft loads. (at 90 ft a minute they make short shots)
    Kodak may still have TX and Plus X on the #417 roll. which comes on a metal spool.

    I have not seen a fuji 35mm spool, but the 16mm MOVIE spools are marked fuji film on the side and have two ofset drive holes.

    OR they may be using a Plastic spool like is used for microfilm. in that cse it may or may not say Fuji, but will have 1 and 2 marked on the sides. the microfilm spools also have the offset drive holes as well as the 1/4 inch square hole.

    You may be able to get a movie lab to sell you a few spools, and the cans ot go with them, they are a touch larger than the cans Kodak uses for plain bulk fiilm.
