    I remember a while ago someone was selling machined aluminium tubes for the same purpose, pretty damn expensive but they looked quiet good quality. Any idea if anyone still has those? Just two or three would be useful for a day's outing.

    There's a source probably very close to your home - the drugstore.

    They've got those little plastic pill bottles in every size imaginable and they'll sell 'em to you (at least mine will) for very little.

    Well, contact them. Maybe they'll make a run if enough orders are in.

    home brew solution

    I am awash in old kodak/agfa 35mm film canisters. I keep them, because they are good for spice storage when camping, holding small nuts and screws, etc.

    My most recent use of two of them is to cut the top lip off of one, and the right amount of the bottom off of the other to make the pair of them long enough for a 120 film. I turned out a dozen such contrivances last winter sitting in front of the fireplace one night.

    I join the two bits of 35mm cannister together with the handy man's secret weapon: self amalgamating rubber tape. It was once hard to find, but recently it has turned up at the Home Depot with the other electrical tapes.

    For people who use the M&M containers... How well do those actually work? Because I've held one of those up to strong sunlight and it lights up so it's not very light tight. Do you wrap them in black electrical tape or gaffa tape before use?

    I just use the M&M containers as is. I probably should wrap them up in tape, but have never gotten around to it, as I keep the M&M containers in my camera bag.

    My main purpose for using them is more to protect the film from unraveling as I don't entirely trust that little piece of tape (although this has never happened to me.)

    The M&M containers are not all the same size. If I remember correctly, the greens don't fit and the browns do. But it could be the reverse.

    Speed Graphic sell the Hama Filmsafe-X, suits 2 x 120 or 4 x 35mm. Sand, water resistant and X-Ray to ISO 3200 @ £3.95. Sounds expensive, but just how important are those shots?
