    Someone makes a stick on plastic film box end holder. I just do not remember whom.

    I leave the digital work for the urologists and proctologists.

    Yeah, I've seen it too but I also can't remember.

    tape

    Some tapes can be nasty stuff, as far as leaving a mess or harming the camera, and if I were to use tape, which I don't, I would use the blue painter's tape, which comes off easy and without leaving a mess. It can be tricky to clean the gooey stuff off that some tape tends to leave, especially if it has dried up.

    My system avoids messes and mistakes, and it's hard to screw this up, knock on wood, although I'll probably find a way.

    I have settled on writing the name of the camera on the package the film came out of, and keeping that for reference, with my camera stuff. Easy to refer to. When I develop the film (or get it back, as I don't do my own color film), I keep the package (opened up and flattened out) with the negatives. That way, I always know what exact film was used with that set of negatives. It's simple and foolproof. I put dates on the package, too, with a sharpie. That shows whether fresh or old film was used, because the film's expiration date is also on the package (usually, depending?) The package can also be kept in a camera bag, especially if there are several bodies in there (camera bodies, that is).

    Sometimes the film doesn't have a cardboard box, or even a wrapper, so the convenient holders on some cameras, for example modern ones they've been making since they quit putting fins on cars, are handy but can fall victim to the "no cardboard end-of-box label" problem. Old cameras, since before computers, forget it! My system works on any camera, and with any film. Sometimes all I have is the foil pack, so I write on that, or write on a piece of paper if no packing at all, like when you get a bunch of 35mm rolls in a bag, in their cans.

    I'm lucky none of my cameras have scars from (other peoples') old tape on them. Short term, I guess it might be ok.

    Oooh, that sounds good. I don't want tape residue and while I like the idea of repurposing a hot shoe, my C220 has a PC-sync port.

    Might have to fold up some brass sheet to make a little holder...

    That would solve the problem and also look quite elegant!

    I seem to recall it was benjiboy here on APUG who sent me some.

    If I'm wrong, the generous person here on APUG who did send me some has my apology!

    I'm using bluetac temporarily as a permanent solution.

    Attach a keyring to the strap with the boxtop inside it. Bingo! Instant reference as to "what film is that...?".

    Hama were the original manufacturers of the self-adhesive film box top "memo holders". Sometimes they can be found in junk sales or swaps, even flea markets. I recall they were a bastard to remove, taking the leatherette covering with them!

    I think I'm just going to make myself a Velvia Keyring anyway, just to use it as a keyring...
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.
