    I used paper and elastic bands until once it fell off...That was not a happy day! I use sharpies now!

    Another vote for the Sharpie. I keep a black marker (retractable, fine point) in each of my 35mm camera bags for marking up the film cassettes for those occasions when I have shot the film in anything other than my usual EI. BTW: The "Sharpies" seem to handle colder temperatures reasonably well.
    An assortment of F-series Nikons (F to F6, excluding the F4) with quite a few Nikkors, a pair of M6s with some Leitz glass, a pair of 500c/ms with a wide range of Zeiss optics and, just to help keep Duracell solvent, a D800.

    Favourite films: (1). KE ("Kodachrome Era"): 35mm: PKM25 and PKR64, HP5/Tri-X; 120: PKR64, PanF, FP4. (2). PKE ("Post-Kodachrome Era"): (a) 35mm: E100G, HP5 Plus/Tri-X and Delta 3200; (b) 120: E100G, PanF Plus, FP4 Plus, TMax 100.

    Dear McErland,

    I usually use whatever is at hand. It obviously works easily on re-loadable cassettes, but it is pretty easy to write on the plastic container. Of course you have to make sure you don't mix things up!

    Thanks guys! Bought a sharpie on Ebay now, since it wasn’t available here in “Nässjö” J
    I have tried “Permanent markers”, but the ink just dissolves, or retracts into small drops whenever I tried it.
    Mainly Tri-X or Arista premium rolls that I need to mark. My Lucky 200 is always shot at 200 so that is not a problem…

    I scratch the canister off the sidewalk or with a rock.
    One scratch pattern=800, 2 scratches=1600... This was by far my most reliable method

    Just an aside, writing from most permanent markers (like Sharpies) can be removed with isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol. A tip in case you may need it.

    If I go on a photo trip I number each roll, for example H1, H2, H3, H4, H5 etc for all rolls shot with the Hasselblad. P1, P2, and so on for pinhole. L1, L2, L3 for the Leica.
    Then I carry a note book and write down the pertinent info like lighting conditions. Works for me! I like the idea of taking a picture of a note with 'place, time, people's names, etc)

    P+1, P+2
    or P–1, P–2 etc.

    Permanent markers are unreliable if the film is going to be handled a lot, so I write details on (fine point DVD marker) a piece of narrow masking tape and secure the leader / roll end with that. That piece of tape then is attached to the job sheet on return from the lab so I know everybody has seen it.

    Scratching is exactly what I did the last time. With a knife, I wrote a terrible 8. ..
    My Color film is developed by my local shop, and they cant push C-41, just pull so I just shoot it at 200.
    I think I will start taking notes on my Iphone on important shots. But
    One of the things I like is to develop a roll and not knowing what will come out, but perhaps it is worth it in the end to know some of the settings and when/where the shot was taken.
