    Also use it to practice rolling it onto your wire reels for development. That is IF you use wire reels. Can also use it on those plastic reel things for practice, but I find these much more difficult to use.

    Practice in room light first 20 times, then in room light with your eyes closed 20 times, then in a changing bag 20 times, then in a changing bag with your eyes closed 20 times. You will be an expert.

    When I was first dating, I tried it this way, but I could never convince my date to get into a changing bag.

    So we just ended up doing it with our eyes closed.

    I couldn't think of anything witty to say so I left this blank.

    FFIW most of the time I don't untape or break the seal tape until I have the film set well in the spindles. More than once (especially in a Kiev) I have had the end of the roll loose while trying to set the roll into the camera and it has slipped out and unrolled.
    Now that's stupid and impatient.

    Just in case this means what it looks to. You don't have to rewind the film back on to its original spool when it has been exposed, in the way you do with 35mm. You just wind it all the way on to the take up spool when it is finished, then take that out and replace it with the now empty spool your film came on. In other words, the take up spool is always the release spool from the last film that went through the camera. Sorry if I misunderstood here and am trying to teach anyone to suck eggs.

    There's probably different ways depemding whether they're small, medium or large. But then you're a multi-formater
