    It is unperforated 35mm rolled onto a metal spool with backing paper, in the style of 120 film. I have not tried rolling my own yet, but it should be possible if you salvage some backing paper or make your own. I am not sure what 35mm films are available in non-perf bulk rolls.

    Just got the camera today. No spool inside and the metal is kind of flimsy. No holes in bellows! shutter works fine and i am very pleased. also came with a leather case.

    A Bantam is handy for using up some of that unperforated microfilm and school portrait film floating around online. If you cut it right you can use the 4.5x6 markings on 120 paper backing to advance the film. The spacing is a little wide but you can still fit 8 exposures on a spool.

    You might be able to fashion a take-up spool from an old 126 Instamatic cartridge. They are much thinner than 35mm cassette spools.

    But then, it may just be easier to find an 828 spool than an old 126 Instamatic cartridge !
