    I have 2 of the same cameras. Wound some colored thread on the strap of the "color camera". Not exactly the same as what you need but related.

    I made quite a few using our laser cutter at work. If I have any left (and can find them) I will offer them on this thread.

    I use painters tape with information, I have a bad habit of loading a camera and putting it in my closet, and of course never remember what film

    Just the one (although we have two). If I find another one, I'm going to keep quiet about it and take it home!

    Yep, just cut the holder of a dead camera, glue to the back of a live one.
    Done it about 5 times to various cameras.
    I don't have a dead camera with one although I could probably pick up one cheap. But then there's the problem of my 10 thumbs...

    There are some great suggestions here. I like the folded up box end and slip into flash shoe. But a lot of MF cameras don't have a flash shoe...

    Insert box top folded into a plastic keyring, attached to the strap (see pic). I have used this method on all my cameras for many years.

    Or write the film and reference details on a strip of masking tape and place that across the back cover (covering the release latch), as most professionals do.

    Those Hama box top holders can give grief. The longer you have one of these attached to the camera, the more aggressive the adhesive will be. I have known the leatherette of camera backs to be ripped off by forcefully leveraging the memo holder off. The correct method is to use a thin length of piano wire (or fishing line) and see-saw back and forth through the adhesive, then rub the remainder off with thumb. It may still leave a residual mark.
    I like the keyring idea as well. Good info about the Hama holders. Thanks.

    It was something to do with the way I worded my post. i.e. reading as looking to see how many lasers I could find rather than how many parts I have made.
