    The convention always has been white for unexposed and black for exposed.
    Anything other than that is wrong.
    The film is loaded so that when the open dark slide is facing you with the the 'flap' end up the film is put in with the notches at the upper right corner.
    Anything other than that is wrong.

    That was what I was taught at the Polytechnic of Central London in 1979.

    Roger that, Yellowcat! That's what I was taught at Central Missouri State University. It was drilled into us just like at Boot Camp. "This is my darkslide, this is my gun".
