    Arista Legacy 100 100ft rolls

    Hello,

    has anybody tried the 100ft rolls of the Legacy 100 and can comment on the edge markings (numbering)?

    Thanks,
    Regards,
    Andreas

    Are you interested in knowing the edge-markings to determine the maker of the film? I ask this, because there is only ONE b/w film maker now in Japan, and this film is from Japan, so it has to be Fuji.

    No, Phototone, I know this is Acros. I'm interested in the edge markings to avoid a surprise - I've seen many different styles from nothing over 2 steps/frame to the numbering we normally see on a 35mm film (albeit with offset). And I had Rollei ATP which ran the numbers in the wrong direction.
    Regards,
    Andreas

    Which means the numbering was in the right order on the long spool, and became reversed going into the newly spooled cassette. Likely meaning intended for another form of use then DIY respooling.
    D-76 is a standard developer, although not one I use.

    Of course you are correct. But the 100ft rool was sold for respooling - among the 35mm cassettes.

    Doesn't mean that's what the film was made for....

    I've had this happen with 100' rolls of APX 100
    - reversed numbering

    some folks use the long rolls for "portait" type cameras, so they would prefer the numbers to go up when the roll is unrolled, folks who bulk load would perfer they go down. The order the factory uses probaly depends on their equpment and their work flow.

    When you get a fresh roll, load a short test roll, and note the order when you process that - if needed just rewind the bulk roll before you load your cassettes. You may find that easier if you can get a 35mm split reel, but the split reel will likly require the two or three inch cores.

    I have not experienced this, now there is another possibility, some cameras like the Canon EOS (film) series, wind the entire roll onto the takeup spool on loading, and then run backward, so the reversed numbers would be handy with such cameras. 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.
