    HELP! Film broke out of cartridge...

    So I've been trying out my new-to-me Voigtlander Prominent, and today when I shot the last frame, the film must have come off the cartridge spool, now I can't rewind it. I know I can't be the first this has happened to, so what do I do?

    Go into a darkroom, open the camera, then load the film onto a developing reel?
    I shoot digital when I have to (most of those shots end up here) and film (occasionally one of those shots ends up here) when I want to.

    Thanks, but I don't have a developing reel, or a true darkroom. I'm thinking maybe bring the camera into the place that does the developing, and have them remove it?

    Do you have one of the cans that film sometimes comes in? If so, roll the film up in the dark and put it in the can. Tape the top on the can and put on a warning note about exposed film being in the can.

    I don't know where you are located, but maybe there is a APUG member close by WITH a darkroom, who can help?? Anyone??

    go to any costco/local photo store and ask them to unload the film for you into a black film plastic can.

    A dark-bag is only $10 or so.

    Failing that, what I did before I had a dark-bag (and recently, when I forgot to bring it on a trip) is to wait until night, turn out all the lights, shut all the curtains, get a few blankets or quilts on the bed, then shove your hands under all of them as far as you can. It definitely gets hot in there, but it works.
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    (Might be superfluous on APUG, but make sure that you use an opaque can, not a transparent one. Else the film will be ruined.)
