    If someone else is doing the developing, take it to them (assuming local). Most minilabs I know of have a changing bag and can sort this out for you.

    Actually, probably the best advice ever.
    Imagine this: being in a hurry, dabbling in the darkroom, turning of the lights (didn't even forget to turn of the safe light), found the camera, found a canister on the rack, took out the unused film and placed that back on the rack, opened the camera, wait -put on cloves first, carefully unwind the film from the camera, rolled the film carefully into a small roll that fits the canister, where did that cap go? Ah, there it is, closed the can, checked if it is really closed before turning the light on and mark this canister as EXPOSED, and .... ahhhhhhh - I got me a Fuji NPH400 canister instead of a Tri-X canister ... and it is transparent ... ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ...
    IT might just happen

    Something like: boil water for 3 minutes, mix baby milk, stir for 2 minutes, ready to give it to baby .... PS: let it cool down first before baby drinks .....

    Steve.
    pull drapes switch off Lights wait until dark either

    empty under stair cupboard and close door fit a blanket to inside of door

    or

    crawl into bed head first and do it under heavy coat with arms in sleeves from the wrong ends.

    seal ends of film can and label open only in dark room, get the process person to read the label while the tub iz still in your hand

    If the film end is shattered brush out shards from camera focal plane shutters don't like shards...

    note my chum opened an Ilford bulk box although it said don't in eight languages I wont tell you his web name.

    Steve.
    I'm probably going to do this. My local lab is a good one, and I'm pretty sure they'll do it right. I'll let you know how it turns out Unfortunately, they only run B&W on Tuesdays, so I won't know until next week how it turns out.

    I never try to shoot 36 exposures out of a film, the maximum I ever shoot is 34, because this once happened to me many years ago in the middle of a wedding shoot.

    The lab took care of it for me. Thanks for all the help!

    It was a roll of Forte B&W. First roll I've tried of it. Expired a few yrs ago. I'll only be shooting around 34 with the rest of the rolls.
