    I remember seeing a thread with someone showing the film backing numbers had formed an image on his/her 120 film - no idea how to search for it '120 film number light print through" ? ha ha - I think some rollei film I bought came in plastic canisters, probably the R3 ...

    and IR maybe ?

    I got some small shallow translucent plastic food containers, very cheap from my local supermarket's 'economy' range, with push fit lids. I think they were about 50p each. I cut a bunch of rough squares of aluminium foil and put them in the food container. Exposed rolls get wrapped in a sheet of the foil, which can be squeezed tightly to the roll, and kept in the container. I used to have the occasional instance of fogging of film edges, but never since I started using the aluminium foil.

    I just stick 'em in my camera bag and process when convenient. Never had any problems even with color slides or IR. No need for extra protection.

    actually, I remember now - it was from having left the film wound to a particular frame in an older camera with a red frame number back for a long period of time... Folders, Holgas etc... Not from having been exposed after use and out of the camera.

    I assumed at the time the Rollei canister was either plain ol' marketing or the fact the film could be 6400 rated (RHS developer):rolleyes:

    In any case, I think they're a good idea, and I save my plastic Adox canisters for other films.
    Yes David, Agfa 120 film used to come in screw top Aluminium canisters, unfortunately I'm old enough to remember using them.

    Sounds like a great idea. I wonder if that would would work for me. All I can get here is aluminum foil.

    Bought a ton of the Adox containers (same ones dwthomas uses) from J&C (who remembers them ?) and really like them. They've saved my bacon the odd time I don't keep the roll tight when I seal the paper end. I take all film out of boxes and wrappers and keep them in the containers so there's less fussing while shooting. Hinge is starting to go on a few but the lids still do their job.
