Was wondering if anyone knows a way to re-use a roll of film after it has rewound? I like to test using film sometimes and being able to use a "test" roll would save me some time and aggravation later down the road.
I popped the end off a roll so I could get the film back out when the tail gets rolled all the way in
Wal-Mart pulled some tails back out for me when I accidentally rolled in a good roll of film (twice now) She said they have a sticky thing that grabs the film to get it out, I tried a Bent paper clip to grab the holes with no luck
Their is a tool called a film lead retriever that you could buy. It cost $7 it slides into the felt opening on the canister and grabs the end of the film to pull it out. Larger camera stores should have them or you can get one from porters.com.
Thanks guys, that's what i needed to know. Will save me some money when i test. Lately i've been using the 12 exp rolls that come with the cams but it seemed like a waste. For those wondering why i test with film, it's cause I like to eliminate any variables that may not work in the field. I've had a cam or two fail with film in it so now I like to run a test roll to make sure the film advances and rewinds at the end.
