I will be backpacking in NZ this year and plan to take along ~30 rolls of 35mm Tri-X carried between myself and a friend. I will be removing the rolls from their boxes to conserve space and would like to find a nice way to store them in my bag while taking up the least space.

Does anyone know of any good 35mm roll plastic holders for travel? Or a simple trick to get them together and stored away in a bag - perhaps take the rolls out of their canisters, tape the leader to the body and keep the film in a ziplock bag in a side pocket of the bag?

Also, I have posted this in the NZ forum just for any advice as to how to get through customs quick and easy with my film and any potential problems or situation advice. It will come with me on the plane on a carry on bag.

Thanks, Chris
