    I've bought a fair amount of 100-ft bulk film, but it's never been unperforated. Guess I haven't been paying attention... I would have thought that demand for something that only fits in long-roll cameras would have been blown away by digital many years before it overtook the regular 35mm market.

    It did.
    There is a fair amount of post dated non perfed in Kodak 160NC on eBay but I don't know if anyone else is still making it.

    There are a lot of long roll cameras with good zoom lenses available. I would guess the film will be harder and harder to get with time passes.

    Yes, I guess we're seeing the last ones on the market. This is why I posted this...

    hush hush secret... A few Canon Eos bodies have sprocketless film advance, you can basically bulk load whatever unperforated film and shoot away.

    p.s. If you dont mind shooting very slow speed film (think kodalith 6-12 iso), microfilms are available in 35mm format most commonly unperforated, which you can develop for continuous tone. It is probably the cheapest unexpired film you can buy, but you usually have to buy a case. These pop up randomly on ebay as well in 100ft to 1000ft cans. And if its expired, its even cheaper. Since the speed is so slow, there is less of a chance of fog as well.

    2 recently completed microfilm auctions:

    1200ft for $90

    3000ft for $70

    I thought most autowind cameras counted sprocket holes using a small infrared light in the film chamber. (I'm referring to the post about Canon and not referring to Leica.)

    Yes you are right, those wouldnt be appropriate for IR films like HIE, but there are a few Eos's that do not, and these are the ones that are really helpful when loading in a changing bag. Any other film that is not HIE would work fine in ones that do use IR counters.

    Any result on the nonperf-film-in-Leica experiment?

    Hi

    Dont worry it wont work, Leicia's and other reverse wind cameras use the sprocket wheel to drag the film along, the spool has a slipping clutch just to keep the film tight on the spool, no good for transport. There are some 35mm cameras that dont use the sprockets, and they can use unperforated film.
