    Probably an average of 2-3 rolls per week. Some weeks more, when travelling as I am now. In 6 weeks I expect to shoot about 40 rolls.

    At the moment I'm only shooting ~ .08 rolls per week. That varies, of course, depending on the weather, my schedule, the cost of processing, etc. In the last few years I've found myself putting the camera to my eye, looking at what I wanted to shoot, then put the camera down. Another shot of whatever that would have been ignored once I got the film back.

    I agree with you, and I stated so in my last post. Im very surprised to learn that thus far I photograph more rolls than most people. I grew up photographically with the idea of making every shot count and be very intentional. The more I photograph the more I find I like seeing how absolutely anything looks photographed, which leads to endless material anywhere, and more rolls. There is, I believe, a fundamental difference in the digital shooter firing 8 frames a second at something and someone winding and clicking very intentionally aware of each exposure. Although plenty of people blow film in the same mechanical fashion haphazardly as well.

    Exposing 8 (36 exp) rolls in 8 minutes would be making one exposure every 1.7 seconds, non-stop. But that doesn't factor in the need to also reload seven new rolls in that same time frame. If you can reload in, say, 30 seconds flat, that removes an additional 3.5 minutes, leaving only 4.5 minutes for 288 frames, or 0.9375 seconds per exposure, non-stop.

    I think our respective definitions of "making every shot count" and being "very intentional" are worlds apart.

    Might be 12 exposure 120 film in preloaded backs? You could shoot those pretty quickly.

    well, you've done the counting, now he can focus on the intentional part

    Yep. Could also be multiple preloaded 35mm bodies. Motorized bodies. With an assistant reloading them. I did note that the aspect ratio of the images displayed on the website appeared to all be 3:2, or close to it. Still and all, 8 rolls of any format in 8 minutes is moving right along.

    Unfortunately I've also never been able to resist grabbing for the calculator whenever a Wilt Chamberlin style of assertion pops up...

    There's these two guys who shoot weddings (forgotten their names) using F3s with MF24 250 bulk backs and MD4 drives. They load ECN film into them and rip through it. I think you could get through 250 exposures in 41 seconds like this. There was a comment on this earlier in the year somewhere on here.
