    I once damaged my Minolta X-700 by trying to squeeze extra exposures onto a roll of film.

    Let's worry about what's on it, not how many we can get out of one roll.

    I only shoot 36 exposures in my Canon T90s because it has auto rewind and there's no option, in my other SLR s I only shoot 34 on a roll to avoid pulling the film out of the Cassette that's worse than getting an extra frame or two.

    My auto-rewind Pentax will give me 37. It seems to me that Pentax was over cautious when ensuring that enough film is taken up at the start to avoid any possibility of attempting to expose on film which has already been fogged during the initial wind-on.

    However at best Pentax if redesigned smight squeeze another 2 frames out of a 36 and quite frankly I'd rather stick with 6x6 strips than have a 7th strip with only two negs on it. Besides which my Paterson contact frame will only take a 8x10 paper which is designed for 6x6 contact prints only.

    What Nikons are those? All of mine (and I have a lot! ... FE, FM2n, F3HP, F4S, F5, F70, N8008s, F90x, F100) let me shoot to the very end of the roll.

    Only the manual-wind Nikons let me start shooting before frame 1 (the F3HP won't let me meter until frame 1 though).

    I used to start shooting at frame zero (and occasionally do, especially on unimportant test rolls) but frame 0 is dangerous to shoot since it might be fogged. Frame 37 is dangerous to shoot because some labs will cut it in half during processing. (Dwayne's in Kansas, the last Kodachrome lab in the world, is such a lab.)

    I like to have at least one frame's worth of unexposed, clear film left on the strip after developing. If I am going to scan the film, I will use that frame to calibrate the scanner for the film base. It's either that or else I have to try to calibrate from the edge or from the space between frames.

    So, the consensus seems to be: Don't be a cheapskate. Just pop in another roll of film.

    Definitely stop at 36 then. There's a significant chance you'll lose frame 37 during processing.
