    Sort of related to this topic:

    When loading, I now make sure that the code notches are located on the flap end of the film holder. That means, when loading, that the notches are on the bottom left (diagonally opposite top right) of the film. Every one of my film holders, and I have several brands and ages, has the bad habit of allowing the film to slide a bit toward the bottom, i.e., flap end, of the holder, thus leaving very little rebate on the top (light-trap end) of the holder. When I loaded the film with the notches toward the top of the holder, this often caused the notches to impinge on the image. After ruining a shot or two this way, I started loading the film with the notches on the other end. Now they only impinge on the wider rebate at the bottom of the holder.

    Best,

If the film is square the notch could be on either the top right or bottom right with the emulsion facing you.

    I have never used notched film that did not follow this orientation.

    This was starting to remind me of the Monty Python and the Holy Grail scene where the two dullards guarding the effete bridegroom were trying to figure out when, and if, they could leave their post.

    Mike, I got it awhile ago, but people are just trying to help. NO one is forcing you to read this and here you are taking the time to write.
    Jesus, Mary, and Joseph indeed!

    Thank you.
    The only film I've ever loaded that wasn't notched in the usual corner was sold at a discount as mis-notched film. I've never heard of any company that didn't follow the conventional scheme.

    that same notch would be in the lower left hand corner, (still on the short side of course, but now horizontal).

    It depends on how you're holding the film.
    When in landscape mode the notches will either be on the lower right or the upper left. When in portrait mode, they will be either in the upper right or lower left. As you say, it's all in how you hold the film.
