    It also takes the same volume of chemistry to process 10 frames as it takes to process 36. If the rolls get too short you waste too much of your chemicals and you spend more time winding film on your reels and waiting for it to dry.

    You too? You must have a Leica Screw Mount camera. My first two rolls on my IIIa were 45 exposure rolls. Blank, each and every frame.

    In the days I regularly ran Kodachrome 200 Professional (PKL-200) through my Canon T90 (1987-1991) 38 exposures were the norm before the roll was auto-rewound, and 38 slides came back. If you examine uncut rolls of processed reversal film nowadays e.g. Fujichrome, you'll see there is nothing more after 36. It doesn't seem very common at all now to squeeze another frame or two from any roll.

    I recommend against continuing to shoot at end-of-roll mark; the tiny coreless motors can be strained if there isn't anything more to wind on. Even if you turn auto-rewind off, the camera will not fire if the wind mechanism has detected EOR.

    The 37th frame is always the best shot !

    Had a Rollei 35s and it probably got 38 frames or so, but I found the spacing way too thin.

    No, the best shot on the roll is the last one, the one they pierce with the film clip whatever the number.

    No, it is the one you missed as you are rewinding the film! :o

    Ain't that the truth. I always wound it real slow because it felt like something might break.

    One very cold windy day I quickly rewound 35mm film and when it was developed, it was covered with lightning bolts from static discharge!

    maybe you should just shoot the other camera if you are so worried
    about 2 frames ?
    or get a half frame camera, then you'll get 2x the shots
    im empty, good luck
