    The 39 frame target is certainly frugal and takes pains to achieve, but even so, you would waste about 40% of the roll. Les, unfortunately, my figures do not lie. That is why I brought up the topic. It's worse than it seems. - David Lyga

    Don't you think we waste more with the poor frames we expose? How many "frame-worthy" shots do we get per roll? I'm happy with 2-3 real winners per 36 exposures. Shouldn't we concentrate on that sort of waste, not the unused portions of the film?

    With good working cameras, poor exposure is not likely. How about banal images that shouldn't have even been taken to begin with . . .

    How about those with manual cameras who don't notice the rewind is not turning with each advance!

    That's what I meant, Les. Not poor exposures. Poor images.

    I see your point David but it's too late now to do anything about it.

    Basically the answer to this waste issue was type APS film.

    If I remember correctly, Olan Mills portrait studios throughout the United States had special cameras that used proprietary 35mm film in long rolls without the sprocket holes. One of their photographers told me that it almost gave a medium format negative, area- wise. This was when we were having a family portrait done circa 2001.

    Sprocket holes are part of the charm and history of 35mm film photography. Many photographers print images that include these, including me on some alternative processes.

    Going off topic: I dislike those patch codes on rebates of today.
