Personally I only note when I need to push or pull a roll. The 120 rolls don't have a lot of room for notes (which is really annoying honestly I don't need to know its FUJI FUJI FUJI in a million places, and Ilford isn't much better using some plastic tape that is hard to write on. Kodak is the only one who gets it at all, sadly it's too expensive and I mostly shoot Fuji and Ilford.... Tmax is cheaper right now so I have some of that but that's it....

I used to "take notes" when I shot 35mm because my 1V has downloadable data sheets for EVERYTHING which is great, but I never use any of it. I'm sure if I publish I'll regret not having details about the shot but I find it all very distracting from the art making process. I can't understand why newer cameras (Mamiya 7, fuji 680, or whatever its called, systems, etc) don't have some sort of downloadable data just stored in the camera, I mean anything with an AE function has to communicate to the lens/shutter etc, knows the shot/selected ASA speed, can't that all be downloaded easily? My canon 1V can hold about 300 ROLLS of data and they stopped making them in 2001.... The Mamiya is newer than that...

My other gripe is the MF stuff doesn't have water sealing/dust sealing body/lenses and those are the ones who need it for all the crazy extremes we go into with them...

Sheesh!

Sorry, I'm a tangent go-er....
