    What's in my TLR!?

    I recently got a C220. I'm used to using an RZ67 which has a little holder in the back where you put the cardboard endcap from your 120 box to remind you what film is loaded and it has a little EI wheel to control the meter and remind you of that.

    But what do you do with cameras that don't have any way to remind you what you put in them?

    Expose the roll before you have a chance to forget?
    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    I have to admit, the other day I folded the end of a film carton and tucked it into the camera strap of my Spotmatic F

    If you forget what film is in the camera half way through the roll just open the back and check.

    There's a flash shoe on my Yashica TLR. I fold the end of the box and stuff it in there.

    I just went to officeworks and got a bunch of little sticky-labels for all my film backs that don't have a spot in which to insert a piece of the film box (usually the sealing bit of paper when I start the roll, most of my stuff gets unboxed before frozen).
    On my Kiev 88 old-style backs (which I think are the same as true Hassies), there's the little window on the back to open to see the frame numbers on the backing paper, on them I just jam a bit of the sealing-paper under that and squish the door closed.

    I do like the idea of flash-shoe mount cardboard, it wouldn't work for backs but it might be ok on TLRs where you only have one film...
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    I've patented my solution: an acetate substrate coated with pressure sensitive adhesive with a high length to width ratio mounted longitudinally across pre-printed thin cardboard stock approximately 1.5 inch square

    In other words, tape the end of the film box to the back of the camera.
