    I mostly use them for storing small sewing stuff, beads, and for keeping craft paint from drying out. If you have leftover paint and put it in a film canister usually it stays fresher and doesn't dry out as quickly. Also I have several in my purse for change, for pills, whatever.

    I put the cap on and slowly roll the cannister on a table top. It takes only a tiny fraction of an ounce of developer which is then disgarded.

    Thanks, Jim. This is in danger of becoming a separate thread but I have another question if I may. It suddenly struck me that the very economical way it uses dev then raises the issue of whether a few ccs of dev will be enough. For instance if the dev of choice is Xtol as it is in my case then Kodak recommends at least 100ml of stock. However this is for a full 36 frame 35mm so would I be right in assuming that the can will hold enough dev to do 3.5 inches of film.

    This is about 3 frames so a 1/12th of a full film so 8-10 cc's should be enough and if so then the can will easily hold enough.

    Is my logic correct?

    Thanks

    Your logic sounds good to me. You might want to check with a bit of old film to make sure that 8-10cc will consistantly wet the entire film.

    The clear Fuji 35mm canisters I use for fly fishing patterns. It gets confusing though when I'm looking for film while out fishing....

    i usually have a sea of this stuff -
    a few times a year, when i can't see the floor anymore,
    i take a shovel and scoop it all up and dump it in the trash.

    using the canisters for solargraphs and rockets sounds fun ...

    Today I used an all black Ilford film canister to make a loupe skirt for a mamiya sekor sx 55mm 1.4 I had lying around. Measured for focusing distance, cut, and sanded smooth, it fits over the rear element snugly. Now Ive got a pretty awesome loupe that rests flat on my light box. Though the 55mm focal length doesnt cover the entire frame, and is about 5-6x magnification, its totally distortionless edge to edge, and bright!. I had it side to side with my 8x agfa loupe, what a difference!

    Film canisters? I though that film came packed in cheap shot glasses? Well, that's what mine are for!

    I always keep a few canisters around for odds and ends (very handy for small items). However, for the most part, spools, canisters and backing paper all tend to gravitate to the recycle bin.
