    Oh, now I get it, you were using blueberry jam as an adhesive! :o :rolleyes:

    I am now ashamed of my Norwegian ancestry.

    I don't know what the big deal is about sticky notes on film holders. I use masking tape tags on mine, then transfer them from the holder to the developing tube when I unload, so the tube has (on the outside, where I can read it -- these are daylight fill) a record of what the exposure was.

    Oh, wait...

    My holders are single sided, so I don't have to put anything on the dark slide...
    Photography has always fascinated me -- as a child, simply for the magic of capturing an image onto glossy paper with a little box, but as an adult because of the unique juxtaposition of science and art -- the physics of optics, the mechanics of the camera, the chemistry of film and developer, alongside the art in seeing, composing, exposing, processing and printing.

    Good Evening,

    Donald has the right idea--pieces of masking tape at hand (stuck to the tripod) and a Sharpie marking pen to record the data. Stick the tape on the dark slide after the exposure is made and the holder is removed from the camera; remove and discard the tape when it's no longer needed.

    Konical

    My guess - less than before. However, if you sniff carefully, you can smell the gears burning as he thinks up with something else.

    My latest trick? - 9x12 film loaded into a 4x5 holder, which was used, of course, for a shot where the camera was pointed down. Exposed the first sheet, saw that the film was on the wrong side of the darkslide after I put it back in, said to myself, "Self, this couldn't happen twice." Whereupon it did. Took out the new-fangled non-film thing to take a shot so I would remember what I wanted to do. Left the card at home in the reader.

    Photography without film is like Macroeconomics without reading goat entrails, and look at the mess that got us into.

    I've had a film jam before - it always leaves a nasty taste. I much prefer the blueberry or rasberry varieties.

    A friendly tip from me: before loading new film into a holder, always open the holder half a centimetre or so and check that the holder is indeed empty. If you pull the slide all the way out in one go, you won't be able to salvage anything from the well exposed sheet already residing in the holder .....

    Loaded holders reside in my fridge untill I leave for photographing.
    I just have to remember to take a few cans of beer along, so I don't forget to take out the holders :-)
