How come when I shoot a 36exp roll of film Im only getting 35shots
You're using too much film spooling it into the camera.
But its an automatic winding camera
Is the 36 frame there but black?
Does that mean it spools the film onto the take-up spool automatically as well, or do you still have to do that manually?
Instead of winding enough leader on the take-up spool to keep it from slipping out, fold a hard crease into the first one inch of leader that is inserted into the slot. (Keep the fold going the right direction) Then, when you take the first wind, you won't need so much leader to keep the film from slipping.
It's a long time since I've shot 35mm film, but I once managed 39 shots from a roll.
I once got over 40...and then realized the film had slipped off the sprockets somewhere around frame 2.
A loading issue perhaps? What is the exact camera make and model?
I line the film up with an orange mark slip it in close the back then it winds itself
Canon EOS Elan
Its actually shot number 1 but its clear as if nothing was shot on it
