What is the consensus on the number of exposures that has been working the best.

I remember hearing that 36 exposures may be too much for the Owl PF to rewind, especially in cold weather.

I have never tried 36 but may give it a try since the trip to my property takes several hours.

I've always used 24 exposure film and always get 25 and sometimes 26 pictures. Never tried 36 but I'd be interested in the results.

I've run 36 exposure film in warm weather with no problem. Yotee was the only one I've seen who said it caused problems with advancing and rewinding the film in cold weather.

I'd about die if I had a roll going for big bucks and it snapped in the cold.

40 degrees and up it's probably okay.

I used a 36 roll in my camera. Only 7 pictures had been taken. When I pushed the button to rewind the film, it rewound for a moment, then started clicking.
Eventually I opened the back and exposed the film that hadn't rewound at all.
I couldn't even manually rewind the film canister.
It was kodak film, maybe that was the problem. I'm going to try fuji 24 exp. next.
