    More than 36 frames?

    I can get 38 frames from a 36 exposure roll with my Canon A-1 and F-1, but my Canon A2E winds to 1 and rewinds after 36. Is there any way to get those two extra frames from the A2E?

    You may be able to open the camera back in the dark without rewinding the film. On some cameras that resets the film frame counter.
    f/22 and be there.

    I think I remember that the EOS 5 (in the UK) used torque-sensing to detect film end - if so the extra 2 frames are wasted at the beginning during loading, not at the end of the roll.
    It's been a long time though so I could be wrong.

    Just getting 36 isn't the worst thing in the world...my stupid archival sheets only hold that many.

    I have PrintFile 35-7BXW preservers that take 7 strips of 6 negatives/slides. It would be nice to squeeze out those extra two frames.

    My Nikons only allow 36 exposures. When I had Minoltas, I regulary go over 36 slides on a roll.

    Nothing wrong with 36 exposures, My retina 1b, as do all folding retinas,locks at 36, where my other cameras go beyond 36, but I stop at 36 as I always found that the extra exposures were almost always not much good, Richard

    I can do better. I get 75 shots from a 36 exposure roll. But I'm using a 1/2 frame camera :-)
