    canon rebel 2000 question

    So apparently the rebel 2000 puts the exposed film back into the cartridge after each shot, so in theory, I could leave one frame un-exposed so I can take the film out with the leader still available to me so I make sure I cut the edge perfectly straight so i'm not fiddling with scissors in the dark room, right?

    Some of the canon cameras can be "told" to keep the leader out-check a manual,online or other.

    To avoid confusion: That camera is of that kind that first winds the film completely onto the take-up spool (Pre-Wind) and then draws it back into the cartridge a frame after each exposure.
    You should be able to open the back door after exposing the last but one frame (which you left unexposed), but then the leader would still be on the take-up spool. Dependfing on type of camera taking it off could be a problem.



    But anyway, cutting the film end before loading the film onto the processing reel is no big issue. You don't need a guide or such. Just make a straight cut, then cut off the corners to make it more easy to lead the film through the spiral. If you feel a "nasty" open perforation, cut it off.

    If you feel insecure, use a pair of scissors with rounded peaks or round them off yourself.

    There is no "leave leader out" option with the Rebel 2000.

    But .....

    1. It is not necessary to use a reduced width leader on your film with the Rebel 2000. You can load film that is just cut square (if you bulk load) or can trim the narrow leader off before loading; and
    2. Nail clippers are great for trimming the corners of film before loading reels.

    Hope this helps.

    canon rebel 2000 question

    My canon 1V does that, or has that option, to leave leader tongue out, however that's how I distinguish between exposed and unexposed film... I think your best bet is what was said above, just hold it between your fingers on the dark bag / darkroom and cut, it will be straight ENOUGH to accept into the reel.

    Just buy a film leader retriever - they're not hard to use and will solve the problem.

    The problem with shooting all but the last frame then opening the camera back is you will lose the last frame and a half that you shot.

    I don't use pre-wind cameras because I don't have any. With a T90, for example, I listen to the film rewind; then when the sound changes I pop the back open. If I'm quick I can stop it before the film pulls all the way in.

    I hope that doesn't mean we won't be able to stop the run...

    Furthermore the T90 has a solder gab that one can bridge to have the camera leave the leader out.
    One has to open the body and to know how to solder electronics of course.
