    So, I had just finished a roll of Fuji Pro 160S in 220, set it aside on the table while I got the next roll (T-Max 400) ready. Before I could get the T-Max loaded, my son (2 years old) breaks the seal on the Fuji roll I just finished and rolls it across the table...

    ...There's 20 photos wasted...

    I was disappointed, but just let him play with the film (he was very interested in it). It was well beyond the point of recovery by the time I saw him playing with it...

    Good on you for letting him have it.

    This is the first thing I thought of, listen to his answer to question #1, only about 20 seconds in. Cheers!

    Dude, it was "well beyond the point of recovery" within seconds. You know how a drinking glass that is in the process of getting knocked over seems to fall in slow-motion??? Wellllll, it doesn't work quite the same way with light. Light moves around really,really fast. I guess this incident proves that small children have an affinity for and an interest in antiques and antiquated technologies, like bows and arrows, and cowboys, and World War II model aircraft and such.

    If I didn't react so slowly, I could have probably saved at least half the roll. It was still pretty tight on the spool when I saw him pulling it apart. It just took a second or two for it to sink in, lol.

    Hey, that's a wonderful little clip, even after the first answer! :) And he's right, of course. Thanks for sharing that!

    I realized I simply HAD to tape the back of my Holga when it once flew wide open after I took the last shot. :lol:

    Now you'll know where "not" to set down your next finished roll of film. ;)

    You're right, of course, about being able to save at least half the roll if you'd been able to snatch it quickly. Another dumb move of mine once was forgetting that the Lomo fisheye I was using had manual film wind, and I popped the back off to have the exposed film waving at me. I slammed it shut, rolled it up, and happily still got 90% of that roll. Lots of people incorrectly assume that light permeates a tightly wound roll of film all the way to the beginning.

    First (and only) times for those above great moments of mine, but undoubtedly there will be more! :razz: Don't sweat it too much.
