    But as indicated above:
    What would be the difference between a straight and s-shaped cut? Both take me a second or so.
    It is not that one would need a template or so.

    There are of course those incorparated in spooling machines as in the small one from AP.

    And in this photo from the Adox lab, the one in the center should be such leader puncher:

    EDIT: It should be for the other end. But the leader puncher should look similar.


    And if I remember right there was a template from Leitz which fixed the film at both sides and then the film was cut with a knife.
    Or something like that...

    people who use bottom loaders need to use the longer pre 1971 leader

    The Leica template for this ABLON is a Leica >>>GBP

    You make one out of a thin sheet of metal Aluminium (Aluminium) is good, copy the shape onto it off the leader of a factory rolled cassette, cut out the shape and file it down to size.

    EOS 1N/V loading is idiot proof. The cameras won't care.
    Stop worrying about grain, resolution, sharpness, and everything else that doesn't have a damn thing to do with substance.

    I wish the Pentax 67 was as idiot proof. Or the pinhole. It is a fumble-fret-fest. Never ever, ever had a film load problem with the 1N.

    I think the auto wind would take a full width strip

    The Pentax 67 is idiot proof compared to less intuitive camera magazines
    My dad's buddy loaded a mamiya 645 backwards and jammed it

    LOL! Tried loading a 67 in the dark or in the dark? Even non-idiots come unstuck.
    But the 1N... it will load surely in whatever conditions prevail, even 2 in the morning with the rain beating down.

    That sounds awfully familiar...

    A friend borrowed one of my 645 Pro TL for a few months, got it back a month ago. He seemed happy with it, but I haven't seen the pictures yet. A few days ago I popped open the back, intending to load it for a weekend stroll. It still had film in it, loaded so the backing paper was facing the shutter. Things that make you go Hmm...

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.

    I've got the kind of missus that is getting increasingly frustrated with me "stopping to take photos" (much like my dad was to my mum 20 years ago), stopping to change films is even worse, and the other day we were at the Royal Adelaide Show.
    Backpack over my right shoulder, Bertie Beetle Showbag in the left hand, EOS 3 hanging on my Kirk SS1 strap, I managed to change films walking without missing a step or dropping anything, that camera couldn't be easier...
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.
